The creation date was when

The creation date was when the domain was ORIGINALLY CREATED. That date never changes, even if ownership of the domain changes.

In layman's terms, if John Doe bought a abc.com on 1/1/2001, and sold it to Jane Doe on 1/1/2005, and Jane Doe then sold it to Bob Doe on 1/1/2009 - the creation date would STILL say 1/1/2001. Make sense?

It's really not that hard to comprehend, but then again maybe since I'm a web developer this is elementary to me.
