    No, but most registers offer the option to auto-renew.

    P.S. Farooq... Slightly incorrect formula. It should be: (70/100 - Your Age = x).

    Please kindly explain whats wrong in his formula.
    I can work out from his formula but dont know about your formula.

    Do you mean 70 or 100 for (70/100)
    If yes, I think he gave a better option.
    First we have to calculate for 70 and then if we survive, we need to do further.

    You cannot get a domain for life, but for most registrars you can do a 'subscribe' thing with your credit cards and the payments will be automatically recurring.

    There was a big problem with it. But I've edited the post and corrected it now.

    It was opposite of how is it now. It was:

    Your Age - 70 = x
    And
    Your Age - 100 = x

  7. Maximum you can reg them for is 10 years at most registrars. But that's a long time, I wouldn't recommend it.

    Just try to renew them early on once you get the expirity notifications.

    Network Solutions offer them for 100 years, but they are well known for being "not so straightforward" in their marketing campaigns. In reality best they can do is just register the domain for 10 years and then try to renew it every 10 years. NetSol is one of the worst registrars to use though, so either way you should stay away from them.

  8. yes you can. but its a subdomain like blogspot.com

    Dont get fooled. Domains are public property. When you register a domain, you get the rights to that domain, for the time you pay rental fees.

    Correct. No-one ever owns a domain name.

    All .uk domains can only be registered for 2 years at a time.
    gTLD domains can be renewed up to 10 years at a time.

    If a company offers you longer then they are just going to renew the domain after the 10 years anyway as they can only register for 10 years at a time.

    If people are desperate not to loose domain names then they need to setup a domain portfolio to ensure they dont loose them. Most domain registrys allow you to renew the expired domain within 30 - 45 days anyway.
