We're looking at buying a domain that we would use to build another website targeting organic traffic.
Registrar History: 3 registrars with 1 drop. NS History: 5 changes on 6 unique name servers over 8 years. IP History: 117 changes on 18 unique name servers over 7 years. Whois History: 25 records have been archived since 2006-08-02 .
117 IP changes seems like a lot. What would cause that? Should we be concerned?
The site is parked now. When I search for site:example.com on Google, only 3 results come up in the serps. Does the fact that we only have 3 results and not thousands mean we're likely in the clear in terms of spamming?
I'm not sure what to look for on archive.org. It shows some crawls in 2004, 2005 and 2008 but all the snapshots appear to be of a parked page.
