I'll throw in a slightly different perspective.

I think it was a couple years ago, but it leaked out at a search marketing conference that registering your domain for multiple years may help you in the search engines. It makes some sense.

Not more than a month later, one of the major domain registrars was heavily advertising Register your domain for multiple years to raise your Google rankings. It made me cringe... really bad. That was taking a rumor or a hint and turning it into guarantee.

My thoughts? If you plan to have the same Web site for years, ya' might as well do it. It will save you a few bucks on registrar fees. If it gives you a very slight edge in the engines, so be it.
