    Is this right ? every domain I have ever bought has always said the date of when I purchased it. But this one domain says 2004 at web_archive_org. Will the date that I purchased it slowly get transmitted out over the net? or will even google think my new domain is from 2004?

    I think if someone bought it before you and it expired it is still considered as the original creation date. Not 100% though. So maybe someone had it first and dropped it now you picked up. I'm pretty sure it's good for that domain since it would be considered a 5/6 year old domain...

    It's just an archive of when the domain was first active. This means that someone had this domain before you but eventually it got deleted and placed back in the domain pool.

    @redpill No, it would not be considered as a 5/6 year old domain. :)

    ShadeDream, I'm just asking... What would make it considered a 5/6 year old domain then? The creation date seems like it would be the logical indicator of the domain age. I'm just saying that b/c if I sold it to you then you sold it to someone else in that 5/6 year time frame, how old would the domain be considered? I'm only asking b/c I'm curious of your opinion on this. Thanks.

    OK, what about the 500 social bookmarks it has. will they continue on over to me or will they also be erased?

    A domain from a godaddy auction WILL keep its age. it only loses its age AFTER it went to auction with no bids and even after the fire sale then its put back in general population and starts fresh then. i have many domains from the 1990's doing very well ;)

    There's "expired" and then there's actually dropped. When a domain drops completely is when its create date gets purged.

    A lot the auctionhouses call names "expired" when they actually are in redemption status or something similar and their create date is intact.

    They will continue over to you. I'm not sure how you purchased your domain hence my response above. If you purchased one from an auction then you probably do have a 5/6 year old domain.

    Ya i just bought them from the normal "register domain" not an auction. I found another from 2001, but at whois it says the date that I purchased it. so i understand i dont get the age with it :(

    but the good news is i do get the 500 social bookmarks that the first one has :) thats awsome
