Why do I get less than a year?
More than likely... because you didn't read the fineprint.
Alright that was a pretty unhelpful answer. Anyone else?
Yeah, when you buy a domain from auction you are taking over the registration so it doesn't "drop", which means it has technically already been registered for a couple more months with the previous owner, giving them a chance to renew if they want. If you look at your bill, you will notice that the price for the domain is prorated, so you are only charged for 10 months for the domain, plus the auction fee
In order for the domain name not to drop, registrars renews it, then puts it on auction,
If someone bid on it and win it, you get to have it with 1 year of renewal. If no one bids on it, it drops..
Oh that makes sense.
I didn't notice it was prorated, though.
Separate names with a comma.
