    If you really care about the domain name, then I would register it for more than a year. I have a few domains that I've registered for 10+ years.

    Some people have said that registering a domain for more than a year shows the search engines that you're serious about the domain--and it's not a throwaway domain name. I haven't seen any evidence of that, but it makes sense to me.

    One good point of registering a domain for a long period of time, 5 years or more?
    Insulated against any renewal increases in those years.

    Good points.

    Personally, i have very few domains registered for 5+ years. At this moment i have about 150 domains so i definitely don't want to pay more than a years' regfee on them. The ones successfully developed will be considered for multi year registration; those are too few by the way
