How Old is a Website – Find Age of a Site

Have you ever visited a complete new Website, which is well written, amazing design, and you end up thinking, why I never landed on this site before. Or you find an online shopping, e-commerce, service site, and before you spend money, you would like to know how long these guys are in the business. One way is to find the age of website, and this will help you to determine how credible their services might be.

Today, I stumbled upon a Website, which is a Webhosting site, and we all know older players in hosting business are usually reliable. Though, there was no mention of year of formation on the site, so the idea of finding website age came into my mind. Here are few solution which will let you know how old is a Website. Do remember, most of the time we can only find the date of domain, and it’s possible that site might have changed niche over the time.

Different Tools to find Website Age:

Way Back Machine: Web.Archive:

Website age

Wayback machine is a free service, which creates a snapshot of a website at regular interval. It might not be very accurate, but this service serves many purpose.

This is another useful way to find how old is a website. Using Domaintools, you can find when a domain is registered, and this will give you a good idea of age of a website. Another few services, which can help are netcraftwebconfs, SEOChat domain age tool.
