So probably like the most of you guys and girls I've always been renewing my domains at the very last minute and in many cases transferring them out to reduce costs if possible. But just recently I've been starting to renew domains that I like much and tend to keep at least for a few yars way in advance. My reasoning is that if there would be an end user looking for a domain for an upcoming product or service and he/she sees that the domain is about expire in, say, ~ one month, he/she might just want to see if the domain simply comes available (given that he/she is not that familar with the domain exp. process). It's not like he/she doesn't have a lot of other things to do. This is all theory at the moment but based on traffic, inquiries, offer views (though pretty useless metric IMO), WhoIs counts and just plain old gut feeling, I renew selected domains even for a couple years. And as said, I just employed this tactic just recently and really don't know if there's anything to it yet. Opinions? Thoughts?
