Question about domain drops and age...

5 replies
I purchased a domain that was registered 14 years ago after it had dropped. I'm pretty sure the "age" resets once a domain drops, right? For example it's not a 14 year old domain anymore, but rather a 3 month old domain - is this correct?

    Good question. I did see positive results from buying aged domain but it would lose its rankings with time. I think the age alone has a good short time affect but it does not guarantee you #1 position.

    the date doesn't always reset if you get a drop. it depends on where you bought it from and if it had reached pending delete phase or not.

    If the domain expired and became publicly available to register, the "age" clock is reset. If the domain was purchased while still under someone else's control, the age remains.
