Deleted domains and their history

Discussion in 'Domain Names' started by uca, Apr 24, 2005.

    What's the easiest way to tell how old was/is a deleted domain?

    In other words, when it was first registered and all the history that is available excluding archive.org.

    Thanks for any help!

    i think archive.org is the only way. otherwise you could do some detective work and search for sites linking that domain and looking at how old those sites were and if they can be dated back to some time in the past...

    Unfortunately archive.org doesn't have info for all deleted sites, and whois.sc doesn't at all apparently.

    The investigation bit would be fun but a little time consuming. I'll leave it for special cases.

    Thanks to you both anyway mark1 and murugan!

    If someone has other ideas, maybe some sort of service that is not well known...

    Thank you Anusha!

    Unfortunately it doesn't say much about the history of the domain name, therefore not solving my problem, but it's a cool service anyway, so thanks again! :)

    for a while Google wouldn't even index domains for a few month after they have been deleted. I am not sure if that has changed yet.

    No, that hasn't changed.

    Apparently Google alone uses that policy.

    So anyone knows how to find out what happened to a deleted domain name such as the first registration date, etc?

    In a reasonably easy way, of course!

    Thanks to everyone!
