    I am going to buy some domains to target a global keyword. If I choose to buy that domains at local domain provider here (its cheaper), will it affect my SEO later? I am thinking if Google will check the domain origin and it will be hard to target global keyword using domain registered at local domain provider (non-US).

    I've check godaddy.com and found cheap bundle domains there, but it costs $7/year/domain for private domain service :(

    How about registration period. Is it different if I choose 1 year registration instead 2 years? I have heard Google likes domain that registered more than 1 year (I forgot where I heard this statement). Maybe 2 years look like more "serious domain" (I dont know how to describe this word, but I am sure you all know [​IMG]).

    Another question, any suggest for hosting provider that accept multiple domain at low cost?

    Thank you.

    You can buy your domains from any registrar, local or international. What Google looks at is the extension. Therefore, you can target a global keyword with a TLD but it will be harder if you use a ccTLD (e.g. .co.uk, .us, etc).

    There are Godaddy coupons that let you register a domain with privacy for less than $5. Search for Godaddy privacy coupon on Google.

    My vote goes to Namecheap and InternetBS.net. Persoanlly, I don't like GoDaddy, I only use them when I need to use their coupons. Namesilo is pretty good too, and it has free WHOIS protection.

    Namecheap- free whois for the first year. Godaddy is just annoying. Also, few weeks back i read that if you order a domain using the Namecheap mobile app you get it for around $5.

    I think the general consensus is that if you register it for 5-10 years then it should have a positive effect.

    Namecheap has everything covered for roughly $10 which is what I use. Godaddy is good for new domains, but when it comes to renewals, you might struggle finding a working promo code that gives you a satisfactory discount. They try to reclaim the first year rebate.

    I would say definitely GoDaddy if you can get a good deal on coupons and stuff. But definitely Namecheap if you want a reliable provider.

    Been using Namecheap for a few years and never had any problems with them. I like the way their system (user interface) is set up.

    I've registered a domain or two with GoDaddy because of specials or coupons, and just found the whole process more cumbersome and time-consuming.

    I've been using internetbs and namecheap consistently without any problems.

    My only con about internetbs is that they don't accept paypal :(

    WHAT???

    Yes THEY DO accept PayPal. I just bought some the other day and used it. Been doing so for months. Maybe you didn't see it or they didn't have it the last time you looked?
