    Hey guys,

    Just now I found an expired domain and on wayback.archive.org the first page indexed for that domain is shown to be in the year 2001.
    the domain is:
    e[exactmatch].com

    I'm getting this for $10, so should I go for this ?

    And, will this expired domain have the same seo advantage as an aged domain ?

    Thanks a lot :)

    It expired 5 days ago

    but guys will this expired domain have the same seo advantage as an aged domain ?
    I read somewhere on the forum that as soon as a domain expires, it's age gets reset, is it true ??

    I thought that if the domain has expired for more than "X" hours (24 - 48 I think), all juice and domain age is gone?

    I don't know of anyone who has provided any proof that Google resets age at a drop and it doesn't make sense that it would. The "juice" will remain as long as the links to the site is active but that has nothing to do with domain age.

    Has it been registered and hosted the same site from 2001 until 5 days ago? If yes, you have an amazing domain. If not the amount of gaps and amount of different sites that were built on it will factor into the worth of the domain. It does have SEO value regardless though.

    Well if it doesn't "reset" at an age drop, when does it? I've heard 24-48 hours, but if we go with your idea of "no proof", there wouldn't be any proof of that either, so why not 2 weeks? 6 months? etc.... It has to reset sometime, doesn't it?

    Before being available goes through these phases:
    On Hold (1-45 days)
    Redemption Grace Period (30 days)
    Deletion (5 days)

    So may be more than 2 months since the domain expires.

    Grab it up as soon as possible. But keep the conditions and other hidden charges in mind. :)

    Thats a no brainier. 10 bings? I would've snatched first and asked second. Thanks for
    giving us a way to search for similar domains though.

    Serious? I wouldn't bother starting a thread asking about this. Take, Take, Take. I know sites that sell domain by age. You'd pay 4 figures for a 11 y o domain

    Absolutely not. I've had clients forget to renew a domain for several days, or their email address changed and they didn't get the domain renewal notice. Nothing was lost after the domain was renewed.

    It is my belief that domains carry all the good and bad with them, no matter what. I could be incorrect.

    I realize that this is a bit different - but I had a blog for several years, that used a domain name that was only my first name and then a few letters after. For my first and surname, the blog ranked on Page 1. I took down the entire site 5 years ago. I DID continue to renew the domain, but it simply wasn't hosted anywhere.

    Earlier this year, after five years of dormancy, I decided to host another blog on the domain name on the blog. Within just several days, a search on my first and surname returned Page 3 results; today it bounces between #5 on Page 1 and #1 on Page 2.

    Care to share where you found that domain?

    Let me make this clear

    You will loose all conditions relating to age of the domain,

    it will still be beneficial due to any backlinks - but you can check these in other tools to check for existing backlinks

    But you WILL be reset back to a 0 year old domain.
