Account suspended years ago. Any way to get a second chance?

My adwords account was suspended around 3 years ago when I was young and dumb enough to not read the adwords policies, and I ran ads for a site that sold facebook likes, followers, etc. Yea, I know now how sketchy those are, but I was naive. Anyway, at the time I tried many times to appeal the suspension but it never happened. The site no longer exists, but I still own the domain.

 

I know suspensions are basically permanent, but does anyone have advice? I'd like to use adwords again in the future for sure.

Please share the URL in violation and we we'll check with Google how severe was the violation.
I must say, though, that based on past experience, chances are slim...

Great news!

The account can be un-suspended if you fix the site and make the business model fully complies with the Policy;

When  the site complies, you can resubmit the site  for a review, using this link;

Is that still the only recourse? My account was suspended about 5 years ago and I don't have the old domain anymore. I can't even remember what it was. It might be registered to someone else now and I have no intention of using any of my old domains again. Shouldn't only my new domains matter in terms of Adwords compliance?

Yes, fixing a domain is a firm condition by Google, prior to any appeal consideration,
Your only option is to get control over the domain and fix it.
