I just oicked up a domain name and when I search for it at archive.org it looks like it was a pretty cool site. Is it legal to copy the website that was their and reactivate it with the same domain name and sell it. There isn't any images or anything that could be copyrighted. Its just a big portal site.

Sounds like that would be copyright infringement - copyright covers much more than just images.

A copyright gives the owner the exclusive right to reproduce, distribute, perform, display, or license his work. See § 106 of the act. The owner also receives the exclusive right to produce or license derivatives of his or her work. See § 201(d) of the act. Limited exceptions to this exclusivity exist for types of "fair use", such as book reviews. See § 107 of the act. To be covered by copyright a work must be original and in a concrete "medium of expression." See § 102 of the act. Under current law, works are covered whether or not a copyright notice is attached and whether or not the work is registered.
