Can you buy and own a domain name forever rather than rent it yearly?
All domain names require renewal, although you may be able to buy one for as much as 10 years in advance. You will always get "first refusal" on renewals, so nobody can steal your domain name unless you don't renew it in time and they beat you to it after the deadline. Your registrar should give you plenty of notice and virtually all will let you manage your renewals securely through a web page. If the price goes up, you can always switch to a different registrar! There are no shortage of companies with whom you can register your domain name, just like there are many companies who can provide your hosting, e-mail, and other services.

You can buy your own server(s). The only thing preventing the "domain lord" from upping the price is competition. They have to keep their prices competitive. They are also competitive with the cost of owning and maintaining your own servers. If you don't want to renew your subscription / domain name with the web host ever again, you will still have to pay a good chunk of change to have your own servers. You won't have the convenience of ease-of-use, and you will have the burden of setting everything up and paying your ISP more money for the traffic.

Well, certainly, the person or firm who sold you the domain can in fact, up the price on it when the time to renew it comes. I have seen that happen. I know you can purchase your domain name for more than a year though. No one can take over your domain unless you don't pay to register it again before it expires.

As long as you've paid for it for the year or 3 or 7 year one its yours. Somebody can come a long and offer you money for you site, but otherwise they can't just up the price in the middle of the year if you've already paid.
