Should I buy Aged Domain

asked May 5, 2012 in Domains by Alpha2 (880 points)
Hi there,

I’m planning to launch a new website and I found an aged domain that I liked. The domain has been parked for over 8 years, with no contents what so ever. Is that Ok? Would it impact my website negatively in Google? Note that the only reason I want to go for that domain is that I liked the name itself.
Can you guys please advice me?

if you like the name then go ahead.. being an old domain that had no content or links etc.. will not affect your website either negatively or positively.

you can go ahead and buy it since you like the name. It will not affect traffic to your website and will be treated by google like a new website.
