Old Domain Purchase : Private Whois
Posted 01 September 2006 - 08:22 AM
I plan to buy an Old domain.
But I understand google will kill all the Age benefits, if it detects that the domain has changed ownership and it will be sandboxed (just like a new domain).
I believe google will do this on the basis of
(1) Drastic change of contents and the main subject of the contents
(2) Change in WhoIS information
To counter this, this is what I plan....
(1) I will purchase the domain --- Change WhoIs info to my details (this is a part of the domain purchase contract) --- Immediately make the whoIs information private (godaddy.com).
(2) I will not make immediate & complete changes to the current site contents.
Slowly I will add my pages and remove the existing pages, page-by-page; over a period of time.
I am sure this process must have been attempted before.
Requesting previous experiences on this subject and possible shortfalls of this process. Also requesting ways to get the trf successfully without losing the age benefit.
Thanks & regards,

Beyond all of that, you are aware that Google is an Official ICANN Registrar now, right Vai?
Since none of us here have ponied up the money and gone through all of the security checks to see what they see after the fact, it's a bit of a wild stab. However it would not surprise me in the least of these Official Registrars don't have a way over overcoming the private registration stuff.
Or, to put it another way, if the Official Registrars don't have a way to see the real WhoIs info even for private registrations I would certainly like to know how they keep sending me junk mail trying to trick me into changing my domains to another Registrar. I get a least a couple per week, and many of them are for domains that have been under Private Registration since it first came on the scene.
