I looking to buy aged un-expired domains names for cheap prices (I don't care what the domain name actually is) and any backlinks or historic sites are a bonus (aslong as its not de-indexed in Google).

Any ideas where I could buy such domains?

Thanks

I meant ones which have not expired since their original registration date.

FYI this is what is commonly referred to as a 'dropped' domain.

If you Google around you'll see lots of advice saying not to buy dropped domains as they dont hold PR etc

That is simply not true in my experience and after buying over 100 aged domains in the past year I now ONLY buy dropped domains because they are 15-30% cheaper and it makes no difference at all as long as the backlink profile is right.

Dropped domains will reset the WHOIS registration date. No big deal if you're not selling aged domains. A really big deal of you are wanting to claim age on a domain.

The bit about PR is true IF you make sure you set the domain up as it was before it dropped and the same way it was when the backlinks were built. Changing it from a www to non-www domain could lose PR that might otherwise exist. Always check the old backlinks to see how the site was originally set up if you want to retain PR.

Dropped domains always reset the WHOIS registration date and make the domain appear brand new once they hit the drop list. To purchase domains that don't reset the WHOIS reg date you need to backorder domains or hit the domain auctions where the Registrar kept the domain registered and didn't allow it to "drop". Of course when you purchase an auction domain you pay the price of the auction plus reimburse the Registrar the renewal fee they shelled out to keep the domain from dropping and resetting the registration date.
