    I have a domain which I registered after it being dropped but on all the domain lookup things it says its 3years old so I guess it is. Google didnt sandbox me either when the domain dropped so :p

    1. Is it yours originally? Yes
    2. How many owners have it had? Just me
    3. How long you owned it? Since 2001
    4. What you doing with it? Selling links, and it's got some store pages that haven't been updated in about 4 years or so
    5. Is it automatically number #1 in google? Yep, but the name is pretty obscure, so no megabucks with that
    6. How many backlinks does it have? Beats me, I don't care much about making this site rank.
    7. Do people contact you constantly about buying it? None, ever. But they do buy links occasionally.
    8. How many years in advance did you renew it? Usually just one year at a time
    9. Does your next of kin have the knowledge of your passwords to prevent your valuable domains from dropping... If god forsake anything happens too you... Yeah, but she'd probably forget to renew any of 'em, grrr
    10. How much would you sell it for??? It's got my name in it, so you'd have to pay through the nose!

    I have a few domains from 2002-2003 that I'd be more willing to part with, but they wouldn't be cheap either. I know that "aged domains" are a big deal :D

    1. Is it yours originally? yes
    2. How many owners have it had? just me
    3. How long you owned it? 11 years since 1999
    4. What you doing with it? my software business.
    5. Is it automatically number #1 in google? no. this is just a simple "products, company information, shop, contact" site with very less promotion. I remember I once set up a cloaked traveling site, it was listed very high for some travel keywords and I earned some money... but google then banned my whole domain, after 1 year the domain was back in the index.
    6. How many backlinks does it have? 1k
    7. Do people contact you constantly about buying it? no, never. (its a company name domain)
    8. How many years in advance did you renew it? 1 year.
    9. Does your next of kin have the knowledge of your passwords to prevent your valuable domains from dropping... If god forsake anything happens too you... nobody knows. when I go "offline", the site should go offline after 1 year too. But if there is internet in heaven (or hell) I will try to renew.
    10. How much would you sell it for??? not for sale... but everybody has his price, mine would be maybe 20000 USD for this domain.

    The oldest is almost 14 years old and has been parked all this time since I failed to get venture capital for a project of mine. Resurrecting it now to earn some cash. It's actually a pretty good name.

    I have a couple from the late 90s, but let most of my old domains die when Web 1.0 burst.
