Domain Age Checker

Domain Name Age Date & Domain Details

IPQS' Domain Age Checker can identify the domain creation date associated with the domain's WHOIS and registrar details online. The "Domain Age" is a powerful indicator to identify domain reputation signals.

Domain Age can also estimate the quality of an email address or website. For example, a domain registered within the past 48 hours can be a strong signal that the domain is associated with malicious behavior, such as powering disposable email accounts or hosting phishing, malware, and abusive content.

What Are The Benefits of Domain Age Information?

Domain age is a critical factor used by online companies to better understand email address risk as well as domain trust. Here are a few benefits of using domain age intelligence:

  • The "domain creation date" is heavily used by search engines to better understand content quality and plays an important part in SEO ranking algorithms. Older domains have higher authority, which is favored by search engines.
  • Popular websites verify if a new user's account is legitimate by analyzing the email age creation date as well as the domain registration date.
  • Email Service Providers (ESPs) weigh the domain registration age in their calculations for SPAM scoring and inbox deliverability.
  • This data can also be used to verify companies are established and have been in business over a period of time.
  • Provide evidence for trademarks, patents, and similar historical data.

How to Find When A Domain Name Was Registered?

IPQS searches records from domain registrars and website content to identify when the domain or website was originally created. Additional values may also include the "last updated" date of when the domain changed ownership records as provided by WHOIS, and the domain "expiration date", which indicates when the current domain ownership period expires if not extended by the current owner.

Why Are New Domains Risky?

Fraudsters favor newly created domains, which usually have a very short lifetime before they are suspended by the domain registrar or blacklisted online. Over 40% of new domains registered everyday are associated with fraud, such as phishing, brand impersonation, and even hosting malware. So when a user signs up on a website with a domain that is only a few days old, it can trigger red flags and additional verification for the user's account.

How Does Domain Age Affect Domain Reputation?

Domain reputation is significantly affected by how old a domain is, so the domain's creation date is large weight of overall domain reputation from SEO rankings to email deliverability testing. Domains which have been registered for at least 1 year are more likely to be trusted by email service providers (ESPs) and other platforms that monitor domain reputation.
