    Hi everyone!

    Since whois.domaintools.com not providing this info like before, do you have any other alternatives?
    And how do you think google reacts to dropped domains ?

    Thanks!

    you can get this buy looking into wayback machine archives, it will indicate at some time a blank history, also if seller is claiming that its never dropped, ask him to provide renewal proofs, its all ok to ask the seller.

    Check over at archove.org and see how many times it has been changed. Look for 1 year or more holes in the timeline.
