Yes, the domain name could be for sale. It could be that the owner was going to use it but decided not to for whatever reason.Could the domain be for sale?
No, you would contact the owner of the domain by looking up their whois information at a place like domaintools.comDo I contact the hosting company?
Depends on how much you want that domain and if your business is already set.Should I forget it and come up with a new domain name? Thanks for any help.
I haven't seen any evidence of this happening. I've purchased a few domains that were previously parked and had no problems getting indexed.These type of sites are being noticed by Google as Garbage sites and they are being penalized so when you buy the domain it could take you longer to dig out of the hole they left you in.
