I'm looking at getting an expired domain name but according to dnprotect.com, it's banned in Google. Also when I Google site:thedomainname.com there are no results. So, this is not good and I should not get it right?

You can't trust the tool's determination that a domain is banned in Google. I have a test domain that I prevent Google from indexing. DN Protect's tool says the domain is banned. The tool also interprets "Current status No available data" as "potentially dangerous", which is ridiculous. I would not rely on these reports when making a purchase decision. But don't use 3rd-party SEO metrics of any kind, as far as I am concerned, as they are only automated opinions and don't provide any insight into whether search engines trust a domain.

You may be able to request a review from Google once you claim ownership. You will not know until u try. In any case, I would not pay for this domain anything beyond registration fee
