There is a rumor currently circulating on the Internet about the fact that the expiry date of your domain name could affect how well your site is ranked by Google, the rumor was given more legitimacy because was reportedly mentioned in a patent awarded to Google in April 2006. This move was said to be part of the move to foil keyword and other spammers who uses a domain name for a very short period, once the domain is blacklisted, a new domain is then registered and used to Spam. You can register a .UK domain name for a maximum of 2 years while .com, .net,. Info and other TLD can be registered for up to 10 years. But Network solution is currently offering registration of a domain name for 100 year at the cost of $999.00. The moral of the story is that if possible, register or renew your domain name for a maximum possible number of years to get more 'web creed' in the eye of search engines especially Google.
