    I have found a domain that has been archived around 220 days ago.
    Domain has an age of 12 years.
    DA 18 / PA 23
    Still indexed in google
    MOZ dom 15
    MAJ dom 70


    Is this domain worth to register.
    What are more important factors to look at when buying an expired domain or is it better to buy a domain from an acution ?


    Answers are really appreciated.

    Check the backlink history of that domain, if it is clean you may buy it.

    majestic.com allows you to do this with the free trial.. I think you don't even need to signup to do so.
