Term For The Website Domain

When buying or renewing a domain, its best to pick the longest period possible.  The benefits of this can include:

  • Cheaper price overall
  • You don’t have to worry about renewing for a while
  • For SEO purposes

Website Term and SEO Impact

While it can’t be easily confirmed, many believe how long you buy your website for can affect your performance in search engines.  Search engines like Google know how long the term is for a website.  The think is that if the term is only a year, then there is a good chance that the website is a temporary website… and temporary websites shouldn’t rank as well against more permanent websites.

Therefore having a ten year or longer term may improve your search engine results.

Where to Get Websites

There are lots of places to get your own website address. It really doesn’t matter where you get the address from.  The two places I recommend are:

  1. GoDaddy
  2. Personal favorite: NameCheap
