Whether you have a small business setup, a large business empire or you are an entrepreneur; the significance of online marketing cannot be negated.
In fact, when you consider the present picture, it is of immense importance to take the age of domain into consideration.
When you consider the internet a domain is part of every network address. It in turn includes website address, FTP, IRC, SSH and email addresses. Hence, the significance of domain cannot be negated.
So, if the active domain is old it is better trust worthy and hence greater impact on business. However, it is vice versa if the active domain is newer.
