One of the companies I was working for had to shut down a couple of their projects with that the domains that they owned expired. Is there a way to prove that the domains existed and see a cached version of the site on a previous date?

There is two way to check website history.

1) If you already know the domain name, then you can see it's history at Web Archive

2) You may also check your site on Google site:expireddomain.com and checkout whether it display any cache result or not.

You can even use Domain Tools and Who.is website to check your domain history as well.

  • Also, is there a way to check when the expired domain was registered? Commented Mar 28, 2016 at 7:42

    @CaptainBlack There are a number of sites which list expired domains that will list the WBY, which is the year of the WHOIS creation date, or the ABY, which is the first found date in archive.org. Other sites such as domaintools.com contain even more detailed domain history reports, but you might have to pay to access them.
