Where to buy existing domains that are no longer wanted

12 replies
Where can I search for domains that I can transfer over to my ownership and not lose any of the domain history?

I am confused between expired, expiring, deleted domains etc

NOTE: it is very important I keep the previous history of the domain so when someone looks up a domain in WHOIS they will see its been owned for 1 or more years

Thanks in advance

    I don't know this answer exactly.

    However, in Australia we have companies that buy and sell existing domain names of value - companies like Buy & Sell Domains | Netfleet: Australia's No.1 Domain Name Trading Platform

    Is that what you mean?

    You should try https://www.expireddomains.net/. They have a great list of expired and deleted domains.

      I previously purchased a domain from expireddomains.com but because the domain had expired I didnt get any of the domain history and when you look it up in WHOIS it was showing as a brand new registration

      Which type of domains should I be selecting?

    You can also look at derelictdomains.com for expired domain lists

    When you buy an expired domain with backlinks to it, all you need to do is make the site live again and those backlinks will also be live and help rank your "new" site - that is if they are good links. Don't worry about the WhoIs info.

      I am not buying an old domain for the backlinks - I couldn't care less about them, All I want is that when someone does a WHOIS they will see the domain is at least 1 year old (not a few days old!)

      So, therefore it is crucial I buy it before it expires and we do a domain transfer - but my question is where is the best place to look for these domains?

    JustDropped.com is pretty good

    Edit: Nevermind, I believe JustDropped domains have already expired.

    Chris,

    I think you are mistaken that domains registered years ago are somehow going to be more valuable than newer domains.

    The search engines know that a domain has changed hands. They also know that the old domain content, relevancy, and incoming links are no long valid unless the old website has an ownership change only.

    Google, for instance, is all about the user experience. They want to serve up the most relevant content they can. Why would they continue to honor domain age, relevancy, and incoming links when they can see in their own data base that a site has totally changed? Why would they give any advantage to a new site on an old domain?

    Think about incoming links as well. The only way they are going to be active to your new site is if the full link to your pages are exactly the same as the original web site that was linking to it. In almost every case they will be broken links and not work a thing. In fact, a bunch of broken incoming links may be detrimental to your own SEO (that's just my guess, I have no proof of it.)

      Steve, I couldn't care less about the SEO value of the domains. That is not the reason I want to buy existing domains.

      It is simply for when applying to certain AR companies they are looking for legitimate established businesses and they have already cited in their application process that they WILL look at the age of the domain using WHOIS

      I hope that makes sense now - any recommendations for where to buy cheap, existing domains with a quick transfer process would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    I have always believed age of domain does count - but to a lesser extent than it used to, perhaps.

    Check the old thread below- especially posts by Gene Pimentel who is an expert on domains.
