We've recently performed some software upgrades to both cPanel and the Client Area that has resulted in some of the KB articles appearing outdated and obsolete. We are working to update and/or remove the affected articles but this may take some time. We appreciate your patience!

If I register a domain name is it mine for life?

When you initially register a domain name it is usually registered for an initial period of 1 year. At that time you will be given the chance to renew the registration for an extended period.  As long as you are making your yearly payments, the domain is yours.
