    Domain Regn. and Xfer

    A few answers I could not find after going thru many threads.
    (may be I missed some)

    1. What is the best time period to register a domain? Like 2 yrs...3 yrs..10 yrs.
    2. Who is the best registrar? (I know this is difficult). I saw a poll between GoDaddy and NameCheap somewhere on this forum. Are these the leading registrars?
    3. What should I look in a registrar, If reselling is one of my activities? Any recomendations?

    Thanks much.

    Stu, OP wasn't asking for the reseller programs...

    To address OP's questions:

    1. If you plan to have this domain for a LONG time, go for 10 years. Actually, it differs. Many factors should be considered. It rather depends on personal preferences.

    2. Please state your requirements VERY precisely. Only then we would be of any help for you. As people say here: there's no best registrar, there's the best registrar for you...

    3. Reselling of what? Cornflakes?

    1) I have seen SEO speculation that longer terms give your site a better search engine ranking, but I think it is a minimal factor outweighed by others.

    Is it possible that you could forget about the domains or their renewal if you do it for 5 or 10 years? Are you sure you will have the same contact email info 10 years from now?

    1) - I prefer to register my OWN domains for more than 2 years. My main domains are registered till 2011.

    2) - GoDaddy / Namecheap / Registerfly / eNom / Resellerclub are some leading registrars.

    3) - Reliability / features / easy domain manager / customer services
