When you are deciding to purchasing a new internet domain name for development, make a minimum 2 year registration or longer on it if your funds allow you to… for these simple and yet true reasons.

Why not just register the domain for 1 year? … The reason behind this is that the search engine algorithms look at new, underage domains as possible venues for deception, spam, domain tasting, and fraud which will hinder your chances of proper page ranking amongst the indexes.

Short term registered domain names are used for these purposes and this practice is not new or unknown….

Rule of thumb –  Register most initial internet domain purchases for a minimum of 2 years.
