You could start out with a fresh domain that you’re registering, or you could try to buy a domain from someone else or from a registrar, please follow the below guidelines to avoid purchasing penalised or a spam domain.
You know, the spammer hasn’t taken this domain and burnt it to the ground. First off, do a search for the domain and do it in a couple ways. Do a site: search, so site:domain.com, whatever it is you want to buy. If there’s no results at all from that domain, even if there’s content on that domain, that’s a pretty bad sign. If the domain is parked, google try to take parked domains out of our results anyway, so that might not indicate anything. So, were people, you know, spamming with that domain name? Were they talking about it in a bad way, like “This guy was sending me unsolicited email and leaving spam comments on my blog?” That’s a really good way to sort of figure out what’s going on with that site, or what it was like in the past. Another good rule of thumb is to use the Internet Archive. So if you go to archive.org and you put in a domain name, the archive will show you what the previous versions of that site look like. And if the site looked like it was spamming, then that’s definitely a reason to be a lot more cautious and maybe steer clear of buying that domain name, because that probably means the previous owner might have dug the domain into a hole and you have to just do a lot of work even to get back to level ground.
