    Hello,

    I just bought an expired domain on http://www.expireddomains.net and on the domain information in the ABY column that is the Birth or Age Domain, it says that the domain its from 1999 but, when I go to http://www.whois.net I get this information on domain:

    Domain Name: mydomain.com
    Created On: 15-Mar-2012 00:00:00
    Expiration Date: 15-Mar-2014 00:00:00

    If I go to Way Back Machine >> http://web.archive.org

    I can see that domain was created on 1999

    And if I go to a domain age tool like >> http://www.webconfs.com/domain-age.php/

    It tells me that domain is >> 14 years 3 months old (from 1999 if you make the math)

    But, other domain tool tells me different like this one >> http://moonsy.com/domain_age/

    Tells me >> Age of domain mydomain.com
    1 yrs 1 months.
    Domain registered 15 th March 2012
    Domain expires 15 th March 2014

    So, I don't understand which one is it is the the domain from 2012 or 1999?

    Please someone help me because I am completely confuse and I feel completely rip off.

    Thanks!

    Its seem like domain were get expired in 15th March 2012 and re-register that's why it could be problematic!

    Yes. Its no longer a "aged" domain from 1999. Its from 2012.

    The benefits of an aged domain resets when a new owner registers an expired domain.

    Is there any use for them SEO wise, for example if my domain is called redferrari.com and as it says was created first time on 1999 and its now been created from 2012, well if I am interested on the keywords "red" or "ferrari" or "red ferrari" does this domain help me at all with SEO purpuses with this competitive keywords at all?

    What I have to check next time I want to buy an age domain? So, this does not happen again


    Thanks for the help guys!

    What you mean? Can you please explain? Also any one can explain me what I ask on previous post about keyword on domain

    Thanks

    Also, if I buy a domain from backorder that it means its drop too?

    PD: Sorry to be a pain but, there is so much miss information on this issue and I just want to learn how to do it the right way, thanks again
