    I learned that older domains are ranked higher by google. I'm wondering if an older domain can give "seo juice" to a newer domain if they point to the same server?
    Background: I want to use a new domain name for a site of mine as main domain. The old main domain is 4 years old tho.

    Well, it's divided to two main parameters actually with older domains:
    1. Domains that had represented a website before that had rankings, and inbound links.
    2. Domains that are old, but had never had any inbound links or represented a website before.

    While the no.1 type domains are good, carry seo juice and can pass its power to a fresh new domain by implementing a 301 redirection, the no.2 type domains don't really have any value in terms of SEO or Juice

    Yes old domain has good SEO value compared with new domain.
    You can do 301 redirect so that visitors who visit your old domain will be sent to your new domain and your new domain will get age authority. Also you will get all link juice of your old domain to new one.

    Old domains always have value and can help in rankings as well and boost a new domain if that is your concern.

    But the other parameters of the old domain are to be considered as well as of the members above mentioned them.

    Apart from redirect, you can also use them to link to your websites which I am doing myself and seeing some good results.
