domain existence length

I was recently told by one of the large hosting providers in the country that the longer your site has been around the higher the point ranking.
Thoughts?

    Hi,
    The longer your domain name is available to be indexed it can help your site`s standing. So, it is a good idea once you buy a domain name to get at least a temporary site up an running.
    This does not guarantee that older sites always beat newer sites in search engine results. Many other factors affect search engine results.

    I was recently told by one of the large hosting providers in the country that the longer your site has been around the higher the point ranking.Certainly the converse is true; the less time a site has been around, the less likely it is to be featured by search engines.  This is particularly true for Google; search for "Google Sandbox" to read more this.  But the good news is, like a fine wine, your ranking will get better over time.  Good luck,Scott

    A Domain name is a distinguishing proof string that characterizes a domain of regulatory self-rule, power or control inside the Internet. Area names are framed by the tenets and techniques of the Domain Name System (DNS).The length of any one mark is constrained to somewhere around 1 and 63 octets. A full area name is constrained to 255 octets (counting the separators)." The full space name may not surpass an aggregate length of 253 characters in its outer specked name determination
