Using an Existing Domain name is safe?


Hi Bloggers,

I bought a domain name recently, without knowing the history of the domain. But later I found that, someone from Nigeria was already using the domain in last couple of years.

Is it safe to continue the domain name? Anyway to know whether any bad history of the domain or any penalty or why the admin has not renewed the domain?

Thanks in advance for the correct guidance. :smile:


I don’t think its penalized. Because I just searched the domain on google (site:…) and found that all your pages are indexing properly. So, I don’t think that there’s a risk in using that domain.

But by next time, do all the research of the domain (history) you’re going to buy.

Good Luck!


Thanks for your feedback. It’s really helpful. :slight_smile:
