How To Analyze The Age Of A Website

So when someone recently asked me how old a website he had recently visited was, I immediately questioned what he meant by “age.” You could inquire about the duration of the domain name if you want to know how old a website is.

On the other hand, you can have a domain that has been in use for ten years but, over that time, has housed several websites belonging to various persons.

In this article, I’ll explain how to look at the domain’s age and determine if the site has changed over time. A blog I followed more than ten years ago is now the corporate website for a startup because the domain’s original owner sold it.

Check The Age Of The Domain Name

You can look at these free tools that tell you roughly how old a domain is. You will only receive the domain name and domain age from Domain Age Tool.

You may find out the date the domain name was created and its age using a different tool called Domain Age Checker. This second tool, at least for my web pages, seems to me to be more accurate.

Last but not least, you may always perform a WHOIS lookup using a website like Network Solutions if you really want to see thorough information. Unless the domain is registered privately, you can discover when it was created:

So regardless of who controlled the site or what material it included, that is how you can determine how old a website is. Use a separate tool to determine the length of the most recent owner’s ownership or to examine how the site changed through time.

Check The Website’s Age

Use a tool like Internet Archive WaybackMachine to accomplish this. The only way to determine how long a particular version of a website existed is a somewhat laborious approach. Enter the URL you want to check on their website:

When you click the Browse History button, a neat timeline showing the crawls carried out by their servers starting in 1996 will appear. The blue circles on the calendar below indicate which days have photos.

You can view the previous version of the website by selecting a specific day:

That’s how OTT used to look, as you can see! What a distinction! The snapshots are somewhat haphazard, and there might be long stretches without a snapshot, so you might not be able to pinpoint the precise day that a website was modified, but it’s as near as you’ll get.

These two methods should help you determine a website’s age and provide you with the data you require. Enjoy!
