How Old is Your Domain? How old is your Competitors' Domain?

In online business, how well you "do" can be determined by how well you "know."

Because what you know is what you will apply. And it is from what you use that your results will stem.

Even the most seemingly insignificant information can put you one step ahead of the competition.

Sure, that involves crucial knowledge like knowing how to win customers for your business best. But it also involves elementary details like the domain age of your URL.

And that's why we created this free, premium standard Domain Age Checker tool.


In simple terms, "Domain Age" refers to the time when a domain name existed, and it is how old a domain name is.

So, for example, if a business registered a domain name in 2010, the domain age will be ten years by 2020.

And what's a domain name? It is the URL of a website, just like That is the address with which Internet users can access your website.

There are different reasons why you may want to check the age of a domain name, which are listed below.

But first, keep in mind that you may decide to check:

  • The age of an already existing domain name you want to buy
  • The period of your competitors’ domain names
  • Or just the age of your domain name.

Of course, the primary reason for checking domain age is to know WHEN the domain was registered and HOW OLD it is now.

Now, you already know when you registered your operating domain name. So if you check it up, there are better ways to spend your time, and it will only do you a little good (except you've forgotten when you registered your domain name).

That leaves us with the other two options:

  • Checking the domain age of a name you want to buy
  • Checking the age of competing domains

Checking the age of your competitors’ domain names does just about one thing: you now know just how long their domain names have existed, which gives you an idea of what you're competing with.

On the other hand, checking the age of a domain name you want to buy gives you an idea of what you are about to get into.

For these two reasons, below are the reasons why knowing domain age matters:

  1. You get an idea of the size of the backlink profile of the domain name. There is a high chance that an old domain name will have a more significant link profile. Why? Because it has existed for a long while and may have accumulated some links over time. The owner might have put in some effort to build quality backlinks, and search engines consider the quantity and quality of backlinks in ranking a website. The SEO work done in the past by the previous owner to create a good link profile can be a big plus for future owners.
  2. You get an idea of how well the domain does in search engine rankings. A long-existing domain name with a quality backlink profile will do reasonably well in the search. Most SEOs believe that domain age is one of Google’s ranking factors. A good search engine ranking domain will save you a lot of SEO time, money, and effort.
  3. You get to know how much traffic to expect. A long-existing and established domain will be getting a fair amount of traffic. Although other factors determine the amount of traffic, a website receives, like publishing regular content, a domain name that has existed for a while will still "naturally" perform better than new ones in terms of organic or direct traffic.
  4. You get an idea of the domain name’s reputation. Buying a new domain name means starting from scratch to build a good reputation. Long-existing domain names sometimes hold a positive reputation in their market segment. This means that users have already developed some trust for the term because it has been there, and they know it already. Checking the domain age lets you know how long it's been.
  5. You get to know how bad the domain name may be. With the above four points in mind, you may start thinking that all long-existing domain names come clean and heavenly. After checking the age of a domain name and finding that it has existed for a long, you can then make efforts to find out if the domain name has some negativism attached to it and for how long. For instance, the previous owner might have employed black hat SEO techniques to gain some advantages over a search engine. Another problem with some existing domain names is having a bad reputation amongst users. Some users may have blocked the website or tagged it as spam or malware. If these flaws are not removed, the future of the domain could be at stake. Checking the domain name lets you know how long it has existed, so you can conduct an undercover investigation before buying it.
