Hey there,

I'm curious if there are any pre-purchase checks that can be done for each domain name to ensure there won't be any issues?

One thing that comes to mind is checking if the domain is blacklisted. Are there any other measures that can be taken to mitigate potential problems with a domain name?

Thanks.

By using Whois services, one can gather information such as the original registration date and the number of times the domain has been renewed or re-registered, providing a more thorough analysis of the domain's history. Unlike the aforementioned service, archive.org may not have saved the website if it had little traffic or was short-lived - Whois services can provide more in-depth information.

Another useful tool to analyze the history of a domain is the web archive service. This platform takes "snapshots" of websites at different points in time, allowing you to see how the website design has evolved over the years, as well as what changes were made to the site content. Moreover, the archive stores all of this data, so you can download the files from any year and restore a website to its former state if needed.

I also utilize the Linkpad Service to check the reference mass of a domain. Although this is not a Whois check, a healthy reference mass can provide an indicator that the domain has a history. However, it's worth noting that even a domain with a history may not necessarily have links, so it's recommended to check the reference mass with multiple services for greater accuracy.

These are the principles I follow to check domain names before purchasing. For me personally, these tools are sufficient to make a decision about buying or passing on a domain.
