When you register a domain, you take ownership of that domain for the term of the registration period. That period is in one year segments, for up to 10 years at a time. You can add years of registration up to the limit. You must renew your registration when its term is complete. You have the right to renew your domain at any time while you own it. No other person may register a domain while it is under your ownership.
You can buy a premium domain for your business or personal site from BuyDomains.com, and then take ownership. Or if you’re looking for a domain name that hasn’t been owned previously, you can visit our partner Domain.com, by clicking Register A Domain.

Choosing the longest term possible is the best way to make sure your name remains under your ownership. However, as long as you are sure to keep your contact information up to date at https://buydomainsregistration.com, you will receive renewal invoices prior to the expiration term of your domain. And as long as you pay the renewal invoice in a timely manner it will secure your domain for another term. To avoid any potential problems, the 10 year registration term is the safest bet. Registering your domains for the longest term possible will also protect you from future inflation in registration fees.
The Registrant of Record, also referred to as the Legal Owner, is the entity which is the legal registrant of the name, and is tracked by the registrar for your security and so that no other organization or entity can request changes to the name. It is standard practice to use your full company or organization name as the Registrant of Record. If there is no company name, the name of the individual registrant can be used. It is possible that you will be entering the same value in the registrant of record field that you entered in one of the other fields on the registration form, which is fine provided that the data is valid. If at a later time you wish to change the Registrant of Record, which you would only need to do if you want to assign control of this domain name to a new company, entity or organization, you must pay a small fee and complete a formal transfer of registrant request. All other data may be changed by you at any time at https://buydomainsregistration.com
You are the owner and will remain the owner as long as you pay your registration renewal fees at the end of your current registration term. Your ownership of the name means you can change any information you want on the domain, sell the name, transfer it anywhere you like, and use whatever hosting or email services you want.
You are not leasing the name and we take no ownership interest in your names. We do not require any advertising on your site.
