It's greed, page rank doesn't exist anymore so they have to fluff the listing up with whatever BS they think will sell, or newbies not knowing.
This sort of "tactic" is used by newbies who get defensive when you ask why they are asking for more than twenty bucks for something they just hand registered. But in some cases, it is actually true and the domain was simply dropped, and was originally registered at some point in the past.
The fact of the matter is - such subterfuge is unnecessary. Either the domain has value or it does not. It stands on its name, or it does not. Why lie about something that might be irrelevant?
The difference between a newly registered name and one that was dropped is sometimes very little.
"Do you agree it is wrong to register a domain today then claim it is several years old?"
No, I do not think it's wrong. I think it's stupid. It's easily verifiable??
Domainers tend to understand the age of a domain starts from its current registration date. SEO experts and webmasters tend to classify a domains age from when it first started collecting backlinks, which is usually from the first time it was ever created. Really, neither way of determining age is incorrect as long as its used in the correct context.
To sell a name that was registered after a drop/fresh reg with history and say that it is XX years old is misleading unless specified that the FIRST creation date was XX years ago, but its current registration is only XX months or X year ago.
Bump, tired of seeing people basically lie. I mean for instance if I was developing a hosting company and just starting it. Would it help if my domain was created 1 day ago? Seriously, I can't imagine!
