    On all the major top-level domains, you have to "rent" a domain (register it for a fixed time period) rather than buy it outright, though I cannot exclude the possibility that some minor ccTLD might allow you to buy a domain. Network Solutions offer a 100 year registration deal, but I'm not that it is a good idea.

    A ccTLD is a country-code top level domain, such as domains ending in .uk, .us or .au. By a minor ccTLD, I mean one which is used rarely (such as those from countries with low Internet penetration rates), for example .mo. The reason I mention it is some ccTLDs operate unusual registration policies (for example, .tk domains are available free of charge). For most sites you would want either a "normal" top level domain or the ccTLD of the country you are in.
