Both for http://evert.meulie.net/ and for http://donateaday.net/ Piwik reports Domain Age as '42 years 281 days' which would mean I registered them on january 1st, 1970.

First spotted on Piwik 1.8.4. Still present on Piwik 1.9.1

Thanks for the report. Seems the domain age check doesn't work at all anymore.

@pebosi

Created a webservice to get age data, test: https://pebosi.net/api/domainage.php?url=piwik.org (will return created timestamp and age of domain in seconds)

See attached patch for integration.

Out of curiosity: @pebosi can you share the script?

@anonymous-piwik-user

This is Piwik, an open source web analytics software. I love it because it is open source and I have a full control over it. This is why I got rid of Google Analytics after I found Piwik. And I don't want no closed source APIs in it which are not under my control. I hate when people try to make me dependent on their service.

pebosi, make this script open source to make Piwik more independent of third-party APIs.

@pebosi

Try this: #3525
