    so I searched through some previous threads and most people say expireddomains.net is the way to go.
    but I have a question. if a domain expires and you re-register it, doesn't the registration date reset to today's date? doesn't the domain lose its age value? how can you make the domain keep its original registration date?

    if the domain was "dropped" and you re register it, then it loses it's age, the other metrics will stay the same.

    as far as i know, to keep the site age, you need to buy it from an auction, that way the age stays, because the domain just expired and wasn't dropped.

    I've successfully built private nets using expireddomains.net free listings...they're a bit outdated but work quite well if you're able to weed out the bad apples.

    The age reset is just in the eyes of whois domains tool or other domain age checker but that shouldn't be your criteria while considering a domain for blog network. You should look at their backlink profile and see if the links are strong enough and pass the juice.

    Now if you want to develop an old domain then surely go with domains in auctions since they retain their age in the eyes of "domain age checkers" so you might get more value incase you plan to sell the site of

    What people are saying is true, if you buy expired domains they are reseted.

    If you buy from Godaddy auctions it retains the registry date.

    I havent tested if it makes a big difference in terms of seo, I suppose so. If you buy expired domains is cheaper and quicker at the same time, so you can buy what is more appropiate for your own situation.
