Contract period with hosting provider and SEO?

I've heard somewhere that if you have longer contract with your hosting provider (eg 5 years), Google will take that more seriously then if you have a short contract, eg 1 year.
Is this true?

Hi,

It's not the contract with your host, but the period that your site has been online that is important. A site that has been online for 10 years is seen as more trustworthy (not just thrown up last night to make a quick buck) than a site that was just setup last month.

I agree with esolutions. The age of your site matters a lot to Google as this is one of the factors they use to identify authority/trustworthy sites.
