    yes if you buy threw the auction it will take a few days after for it to move to your account.

    Hi Knoxgates,

    Sorry, I did not log on earlier.
    I'm not an expert, I've just done it for a while.

    Go for it. Domain age will remain and so will rank.
    There have been some rare exceptions for me, but usually that's when the purchase coincides with the Google update.

    So as soon as you get your hands on it, throw up a site or at least park with Sedo, so there will be no gaps in hosting.

    Then ideally try to get its indexed pages using waybackmachine and restore them within your new site. If your site's topic will be very unrelated to the content on those old linked-to pages, do not include give them internal incoming links. And change them a bit if needed, so they match your new setup better. Just keep incoming link/anchor text unchanged.

    The beauty of an aged domain is that you can build new links to it at a much quicker rate than without being sandboxed.

    Hope this helps and comes in time.
