Thread: Is it possible to get a domain for life?

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Is it possible to get a domain for life?

    I am tired of this 1 year, 2 year domain expiry...And top of it, if one forgets to renew the domain name, your complete efforts of building a brand name goes down the drain.

    I ask everyone...is it possible to buy a domain name for life?

    No according to my knowledge you cannot get a domain for life.

    No!

    But you can register one for 99 years with Network Solutions. They are the only registrar offering this option. This will surely last your lifetime, unless you manage to live past that age

    You have to consider what "for life" means. Some people live to 20, some people live to 108. You can't just have domains completely taken off the market because someone chose the billion dollar "for life" option. It'd be nutso.

    Hello,

    There is sort of a way to get a domain for life. Several hosts include a domain for free for the life of your account.

    But what happens if the person decides to switch host? The domain is lost, right?

    An average person lives for 60/70 years. Do this:

    70 - Your Age = x.

    Register the domain for x years and if you were still alive after that. Use this:

    100 - Your Age = x.

    And if you were still alive then.... Good luck.

    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.
