I'm registering a domain and have a quick question:
Now I'm registereing a domain with my current address and phone#. I plan to move in about 6 months, by that time, can I update my domain WHOIS info to the new address anytime I want? Is there any restriction?
BTW, I plan to own this domain for years to come. Do you guys think I should renew it yearly or shoud I buy it for 5yrs or 10yrs? I know it is cheaper but is there any disadvantage for register a domain for 5 or 10 yrs (with godaddy.com)?
Oh yeah. If godaddy.com goes out of business, what will happen to the domain registered thru them?
You should be able to update your whois information at anytime through your registrar. If you're sure that you want to keep this domain, there's no harm in registering it for multiple years. I've used Godaddy for some time now, and I'm very happy with them.
10 years down the road, I'm quite sure that we will NOT be using .com any more! Just think about your vinyl records if you have any.*
