DomainTools.com is the buyer of the domain name Screenshots.com which according to DN Journal sold back in February of this year for $32,500.
Screenshots.com is a perfect match for Domaintools.com which is a service which pulls histories of domain names.
Screenshots.com is now directing to DomainTools.com and with the database of information DomainTools.com already has, this promises to be a WayBack Machine killer.
Alexa.com’s WayBack Machine indexes how websites looked in past years and/or months.
For myself, the service always seemed inconsistent usually not pulling up anything different on dates that would indicate a change to the index site and often no information at all.
Beyond that I have always found the WayBack Machine difficult to navigate aa you have to click on different dates to see what comes up.
Screenshots.com (directed to Domaintools.com) on the other hand has a side by side comparison how a site looked on certain dates with screenshots and the dates of the change.
This is TheDomains.com on ScreenShots/DomainTools.com:
Screenshots.com/DomainTools.com has other the relevant data you would want to see like Alexa ranking, Compete ranking, visitors by country, visitors by city and SEO score just to name a few which appear below the actual screenshots.
Now knowing the buyer of the domain name Screenshots.com to be DomainTools.com and seeing how its being put to use, this domain may turn out to be one of the best purchases of 2011.
Congrats to Ammar and his team on a great pickup.
