You do not "buy" domain names. You "register" domain names. It might be
generally helpful to use the proper terminology.

>From the InterNIC FAQ:

    "How long does a registration last? Can it be renewed?

    Each registrar has the flexibility to offer initial and renewal
registrations in one-year increments, with a total registration period limit
of ten years."

This of course raises interesting questions should the name be reregistered
by a different party or should the registration lapse.
