Nominet to roll out multi-year registration periods for .uk domain names:

The current 2 year registration period for .uk domain names will change in 2012 to offer flexible registrations of up to 10 years, following a policy process and stakeholder consultation conducted by Nominet.

[nominet.org.uk...]

Now this I like the sound of, saves me renewing my .co.uk domains every two years.

Yes I am all for it too.

10 year registrations will be really good.

Personally I am all for it but I thinking about the various threads about webmasters going AWOL with domains in their own name I can forsee the occasional problem.

Never thought about it before but having just wound up a relative's estate I realise that I don't know what the procedure is on the death of a domain owner.
