It is also good practice if you are not sure your target market is profitable. By registering a domain for one year to test out the market first, if it is a profitable market to work on, you can then renew few years ahead. But don't do this when you are starting on the new niche market. By doing so, you are minimizing your start up cost.

Just my 2 cents.

For $8 a year - I'll stick with my 2 year policy. If the product does not work you can usually throw some re-written PLR content on a blog and flip the site for a profit.
