    ​How to check is deleted domain banned or sandboxed? In MOZ it has spam score 0/17, so it is clear. If it was deleted before 1 or 2 years, how to know will it be indexed again?

    I would check the backlink profile and use the wayback machine to see what the site looked like before. If it is just a legitimate site that hasn't been spammed or re-purposed as a blog network before, then it is worth taking a chance on, if you like it.

    But I don't think there is a definite way to know until you try and get it indexed.

    Check from where the backlinks are coming, Check the screenshot history of the site, Check archive.org for the content that used to be there. If you find everything is good in this side, then you can take the risk. I say risk because even after checking everything you will never know why some sites just don't index.
