    I have searched the forum on techniques for purchasing aged domains.

    There are a few things that are unclear to me:

    1. If you buy an aged domain and you change the registrar name, will the domain still maintain it's age effect?

    2. If you purchase a domain from go daddy auctions, will the 'created date' on the domain still maintain its old age, or does this reset?

    3. The most important one i wanted to know was, what about web hosting? If the previous owner used one web host and you want to use another, will this still maintain age?

    Any assistance from the wiser guru's on this forum would be much appreciated.

    The answer to all 3 questions is Yes, it will maintain its age... as long as you don't buy a dropped already domain

    Here are your answers:

    1. An expired domain will maintain its age when you buy it.

    2. When purchasing from GoDaddy auctions, the 'created date' will maintain its old age.

    3. The previous owner's web hosting will not affect you - when an expired domain is available from GoDaddy, it is no longer hosted by the old owner, GoDaddy hosts it. When you buy it, you point the nameservers to your own hosting account. The age is unaffected.

    TIP: When you buy a GoDaddy expired domain, you will need to pay for the domain AND 1 year renewal fee. You can save money using a discount code:
