    So i am gonna start an ecommerce website in my country and i found a nice domain from godaddy auctions which is 5 years old being dropped once. When i search for the brand in google for example "XYZ SHOP" it shows #1 XYZSHOP.COM , which is a good sign that its ranking for brand name already.

    i am planning to upload thousands of products on the site in future so does anyone think the dropped domains can have any issues ranking? Last thing i want is uploading 1000 products only to find out site is not gonna rank as good as other non dropped domains.

    Site has got good link profile though, 25 referring domains from high quality relevant sites... and its PR2.

    looking forward to replies from people who ranked dropped domains just as good as any non dropped domains....

    If you setup your shopping cart/e-commerce system through a website like BigCommerce, you can easily change the domain without having to mess about with the back end.

    Indeed, pretty much any e-commerce software will facilitate the change of a domain name without any back end issues.
