    I've found an amazing domain that seems inactive, and expires towards the end of the year (whois creation date was 2003). I want to grab it as soon as I can, but I want to make sure it hasn't been burned or blacklisted or anything. I've checked a couple blacklist checker sites, and it comes up clean, but it appears to have no history at all. Going to the domain throws a fastly unknown domain error (fastly is a CDN), searching google for site:domain gives no results (no results from google in general either), and whois shows nameservers on ppcmedia.net, which also doesn't exist. So is this domain the result of a large churn n burn operation, and are there any sure ways I can figure out if this domain is safe to buy?

    Search in google "way back machine" then you check all of history of your domain.

    Forgot to mention in OP, nothing on archive sites either, I just get "Page cannot be displayed due to robots.txt", which could be someone covering their tracks, correct?

    I think Domain tools will help to check the complete history of a site. Hope it helps.
