Network Solutions is offering 100 year domain name registrations for .com and .net domains.

Many companies are finding out the hard way that their domain names were registered by employees or even contractors who are no longer around, and, as a result, they may not find out the registration was due to expire until their web site or e-mail system stops working. Network Solutions are responding with a unique service that will help protect our customers against those risks.

Customers are effectively gambling hundreds of pounds on Network Solutions' longevity though because domain names can only be registered for ten years. Network Solutions adds extra years to the registration annually.

According to VeriSign, the global domain name registry for all .com and .net domain names, more than 2 million domain name registrations were reactivated in the last six months after being allowed to expire.

Do you think the Internet will still exist in 100 years?

Surely we will have moved on by then to telethapy or something? Laughing

Well, radio is around for many decades, so it's possible.

I strongly believe that we will see some new way to deliver the content(text, audio, video and possibly more) before 2100; however, ...

I just think 100 years is too long. I question any mechanism that allows anyone to guarantee the ownership of any property/intellectual property for that long.

Sounds loopy to me. 100 years from now I certainly hope we have moved on from the internet, however it isn't garunteed by any means obviously...

we'll all be dead by then. And as technology change people will to, so if the something new becomes widespread, like the internet has, your domain name may become useless.

Bad idea...

No way the internet will still be around in 100 years, IF it is, it won't even be CLOSE to mainstream

I have to agree that 100 years seems excessive. However, the concept of an organisation protecting your domain for an extended period of time may be attractive to some organisations. One less thing to worry about.

30 years would be ideal for most.

The big question i beleive would be, is that will Network Solutions still be here in 10 years let alone 100 years. I think everyone here has seen how fast the internet moves, i mean it was only a few years ago hardly anyone had heard of google and they are the biggest now. Or really any dot com they all come and go what is to say the companies here now will still be around in 10 years let alone 1 year.

100 years is silly. The real solution to this is to make the process better. Allowing dropped domians to go to squatters is just stupid.

Some method of preventing domain jackings would be good, im thinking of starting something myself to take out spammers and domain jackers, will keep you updated if it gets off the ground.
