Hi there!!

There is nothing such as owning for ever..

PowWeb has some deals where in you can get the domain name for 2 years and then get 14 months for free - which is quite a long time.

Sadly enough they do not have any system where you can own the domain name forever as such

hope this helps

10 years is the maximum length allowedby ICANN (the ruling body), and you'll have to pay the yearly fee X 10 (i.e. $8.95 X 10 = $89.50).

If someone offers you a longer term, it's a scam.

I believe that register.com gives you the option to automatically renew your domain (I assume that other domain services do that too). In my case, once the two years are up, register.com will automatically renew it for me and just charge it to my credit card. Then I don't have to worry about losing the domain name. I think mine is up for renewal next month, so I'll find out if it really works.
