Why Aged Domains
Aged Domains have long been considered one of the most powerful methods for ranking highly for your desired keywords. This is because of the history of content and backlinks.
A new domain will have no history which can be ok in some situations but if you could get higher rankings and more traffic much sooner that would be more desirable. Therefore, domains being sold at auction can fetch hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
Webmasters will spend days and weeks trying to get the type of backlinks that an aged domain could have.
Your options for getting the best aged domains are to either buy them at auction or to find expired domains for yourself. In both cases Domain Hunter Gatherer Pro will make the process much simpler and far quicker allowing you a much better choice of domains to use than any other method.
For Aged Domains you have 2 choices: Buy them from auction or find them yourself. Searching for your own domains can take a bit more time but will be far cheaper in the long run as you will only ever pay the registration fee rather than buying the domain (anything upwards of $50+) plus the reg fee.
Expired Domains Tools
Domain Hunter Gatherer Pro has by far the largest group of tools to make finding the best expired domains easier than ever before. All tools are configurable yet powerful by default. Below is a look at some of the major tools for searching expired domains in DHG Pro:
Keyword Containing Domains
With Easy Expired Domains and Domain Hunter Gatherer Pro you can quickly search thousands of expired domains containing your keyword and check them for availability with the press of a button
Keyword Related Domains
Enter your keyword(s) and DHG Pro will do all searching, crawling and availability checking for you. It really is as easy as enter in your keywords and press start. Expired domains returned from this job will have a link(s) from a page that is ranking for one of the entered keywords
Domains with Link from Authority Website or Competitor
Enter in the homepage of a competitor or an authority in your niche and DHG Pro will crawl deep into the website and pull up all domains that are available and linked from an internal page on that website. Links from an authority or competitor can be very powerful indeed. You may be surprised how many of your competitors link out to an expired domain that can be snapped up for a small registration fee.
Reverse Searched Domains
This is one for the professionals; find available domains that link to your competitor to “steal” a backlink (legally) from them. No other software or service has this functionality without needing an expensive third party service, DHG Pro has it included as standard.
Premium Auction Domains
If putting in a bit of time to run searches or crawls for expired domains, you may be more interested in domain auctions or premium domains for sale. There are lots of sites listing domains to buy and searching across all these sites can be very time consuming. That is, unless you have Domain Hunter Gatherer.
Though purchased domains are more expensive than registering a dropped domain it can often be much easier to find quality domains. If you have the budget to buy domains then auctions are a great place to find a website to build your website / business on.
With Domain Hunter Gatherer you will be able to search the following websites in a matter of seconds:
- GoDaddy Domain Auctions
- NameCheap Domain Market
- Flippa Domain and Website Auctions
- Above Domain Marketplace
- DynaDot Domain Aftermarket
- HugeDomains Premium Domains
The above represents probably the absolute best in domain auction websites in the world but we are always looking out for more and will do our best to add in any major auction sites that are suggested so if you have another site in mind, please do get in touch to let us know
Easily Filter Domains
Finding lots of domains with the right tools (DHG Pro) really isn’t that hard, the hard part is filtering and sorting through the desirable domains. To make a purchasing decision you will likely want to know:
- Age of the domain
- Amount and quality of backlinks
- Basic domain stats (TLD, keywords in name, topics etc)
- Whether a domain is still indexed
- Shares on social sites such as Facebook and Pinterest
- 3rd party stats from Majestic, Moz, Ahrefs, SEMRush and other sites
Domain Hunter Gatherer supports filtering and sorting by more than 40 different factors to make finding the best domains in your list easier than ever before. With the extensive filtering and sorting tools you will be able to filter for just domains with a high Moz Domain Authority, high Majestic TF, high Ahrefs Domain Authority or any other type of stat with the click of a button.
Filtering by TLD a domain is based on is also a simple as telling the tool what TLD you are interested in or even select those TLDs that you do not want. Best of all using this filter will not slow anything down, filtering by TLD will allow your jobs to end much quicker without checking availability of domains that you would never be interested in.
The built in Domain Spam check tool in DHG Pro can be used for quickly filtering out some domains based on it’s stats, content and backlink history without the need for any third party services, it is all included.
Even the simplest of tools will have aspects that a user is unfamiliar with so we have some great support materials to help out users as much as possible. We have written guides and hours of videos covering every part of the Domain Hunter Gatherer Pro package.
If you want to get started and see how to setup Domain Hunter Gatherer we have a video for that. If you want to see how to get expired domains with links from a competitor, we also have a video for that.
All of our videos are posted to our expired domains youtube channel while most are available on our video guides webpage here. The youtube playlist and associated videos are also linked from within the software to make them as accessible as possible.
If there is something that is not covered by a video guide we offer comprehensive support via email (email@example.com) and via our easy to use Support Helpdesk.

You can visit our section on domain TLD extensions to find out exactly what TLDs are supported along with where the cheapest registration fees can be found. Buying lots of expired domains can get expensive so saving money on registration fees can keep your costs low.
There are around 1600 different domain extensions, commonly referred to as TLDs, with over 600 million domains registered, and more domains being registered every day. Domain Hunter Gatherer Pro can check availability of the vast majority of these but as more are added regularly some may need attention from time to time.
