For SEO players, using aged domains or expired domains seems to have become a necessity. How not, this technique from the past until now is still widely used and the results remain powerful.

If you can mix it right, this technique is able to bulldoze many competitors with large and competitive searches.
Understanding Aged Domain And Its Functions for SEO
Understanding Aged Domain
Aged Domain or expired domain is the domain whose active period is no longer extended by the previous domain owner, so that we can re-register with our name.

The Aged Domain Function and its Benefits for SEO
Regardless of the quality, this aged domain can be used for many things in SEO. At least, the following things can be done when you have an aged domain.

Aged Domain as PBN
In many cases, aged domains / expired domains are often used for PBNs (Private Blog Networks) by SEO practitioners. Even if the parameters are good, this aged domain can boost the ranking of moneysite sites in search engines.

With the concept of neat link building, SEO practitioners can easily bulldoze competitors even though the level of competition is very high.

Aged Domain as Moneysite
Besides being used for PBN, aged domains can also be used as moneysite. With the authority and backlinks that are already owned, this aged domain can be used as a potential moneysite.

There are also many AdSense players who use the aged domain to play blog wallpapers and spring wallpapers (foreign).

Aged Domain as 301 Redirects
Finally, we can use this aged domain to provide link juice to the fresh domain with the 301 redirect technique. Although quite risky, but this method is powerful enough to maximize SEO offpage of a site.

For those who are still beginners, it is not recommended to use this method. If the technique used is wrong, then the site you are optimizing for is vulnerable to being banned and de-indexed.

Domain Stages After Expired
For your broader insight into the aged domain / expired domain, it's a good idea to listen to the stages after the domain has expired.

Following are some stages of the domain from the beginning expired until the domain is auctioned or deleted from the registrar. Since more people are using Godaddy, we will use the registrar as a reference.

Day After Domain Expired Description
  1. Day 1 On this day, the domain will be included in the Grace Period where Godaddy will automatically charge and renew (if the owner sets auto-renew) to extend the active period of the domain.
  2. Day 5 Godaddy will make a second bill and renewal. If it still fails, the domain will be entered into the parking domain.
  3. At this stage, domain owners can still extend without penalty fees. It is still safe and can be extended to rent the next domain.
  4. Day 12 On this 12th day, Godaddy will try to renew automatically for the third time and this is the last. However, domain owners can still extend without any penalty fees.
  5. Day 19 At this stage, the domain owner can still extend the domain's active period even though it will incur a penalty fee of $ 80.00.
  6. Day 26 If the previous stage is not responded to, the domain will enter the Godaddy auction with the BID system.
  7. Day 36 At this stage, the domain auction period ends. If the domain has not sold well, the domain will be entered into the auction closeout auction. At this stage, the user will apply the BIN (Buy it Now) system.
  8. Day 41 This stage, the closeout auction ends.
  9. Day 42 For users who are late, there is still a last chance for the owner of the old domain renewal. If the domain owner renewed the domain at this stage, the previous auction winner (closeout) will be refunded.
  10. 43rd day Domain will be given to the auction winner (closeout). If until this stage the domain still does not sell, then the domain will be submitted to the registry.
  11. Day 44 The domain will be returned to the registry with the status of Redemption Period for 30 days. At this stage, the domain can only be extended by the old owner. Of course the cost of fines must be borne.
  12. Day 74 The domain will enter Pending Delete status for 5 days. Domains at this stage cannot be extended by the old domain owner.
  13. Day 79 At this stage, the domain has entered Deleted status. After that, the domain will be re-released and can be purchased like a fresh domain. Parameters such as the age of the domain will be set back to 0.
After reading some of the explanations, I think you understand better. Next, we will discuss some of the stages mentioned earlier.

From these stages, the so-called aged domain is when you buy an expired domain with an auction system between the 26th and 41st days. This is because you will extend the active period of the domain before the domain is returned to the registry.

Whereas if you buy a domain after the 79th day then that includes purchasing a dropped domain.

Of course because you bought the domain after returning it to the registry and the age of the domain will be reset to 0 alias it will be new again.
  1. Pros and Cons of Aged Domain
  2. Advantages of Aged Domain
  3. You can distinguish between de-index and indexed domains.
  4. You can get a domain authority and it's quite old because it hasn't been set to 0.
  5. Lack of Aged Domain
Because of its quality, the price offered is usually quite expensive. This can also be because you have to pay the domain fees and the active period.
Since the stock in the auction is quite limited, you are less flexible in choosing a domain name.

Strengths and Weaknesses of Dropped Domains (Expired)
Excess Dropped Domain

Because it is set to 0 (like a new domain), the price of dropped domains is usually cheaper.
If you want a unique domain name and have branding value, then don't worry when buying dropped domains. The stock provided by the registrar must be quite abundant and you can choose at will.

Lack of Dropped Domains
Since almost all dropped domain indexes are set to 0, it will be very difficult to distinguish which ones are de-index and which are not.The domain age will also be reset to 0, so the backlink strength will be equal to the fresh domain. The effect might not be felt if we compare it to the aged domain.

Both the aged domain and dropped domain, both have their own advantages and disadvantages. You can adjust to your budget and needs.

However, my suggestion is to use an aged domain only because we can use it more leverage. Although fairly expensive, the effect will be felt if you use it properly.
