How can I extend the registration period for a domain?


UK domains (.co.uk, .org.uk, and so on) are always registered for two years at a time and can only be extended when they come up for renewal after two years. Generic domains (.com, .org and so on) can be registered for periods from one to ten years; they can only be extended when their renewals are due but the renewal can be for any period in this range.
