Is this domain really aged?

    Hey,
    I`ve found this really nice aged domain which fits my niche perfectly. The problem is that softs like Trafic Travis which (from my experience) always tells the truth about domain`s age shows that the age of it is zero. Firefox plugin 'seo quake' also shows 'N/A' which means zero... but web-based checkers like http://www.seologs.com/dns/domain-check.html claims that it`s 5 years old. How can I really be sure that google is going to treat my domain as an older one before making a purchase? Thanks a lot.

    You can look at the wayback machine to see if there was an active site on it then look at http://whois.domaintools.com under the registration tab. If it is registered 5 years ago it is genuine. If it is registered some time since then it is likely a dropped domain. I wouldn't pay $xxx for a drop.

    BTW, N/A does not mean 0, it means that the data is unavailable in that tool at that time so don't be frustrated by that.

    if it's an EMD then it's worth the money. 5 years old domains can be found very easily.
