Domain authority is the ranking score of a website. It ranges from 1 -100, 1 the worst and 100 as the best. The high the number, the higher is the rank. It predicts how well the website is working and ranking in SERP. It is commonly seen that, the start up websites or small business has low domain authority score. Why is that so? It is because of low inbound links, rate of high spam, lack of quality backlinks, etc.,
Page rank authority : Page rank tool has the ability to measure each page of website. But this was stopped by Google in 2014. 
A web tool called moz created the new domain authority for ranking score of websites. But moz is not the only depending factor for ranking score of a website
When compared to Google, MOZ does not possess that much data, as that of Google and gives ranking only to that data which it has.
 moz Domain Authority doesn’t consider Google penalties and rank the website excluding penalties, but according to Google, the more the penalties, the low the ranking. 
So, are the penalties overlooked by moz?
Moz takes about 40 metrics for ranking a website, but for Google there are more than 200 ranking factors.
It’s quite easy to improve score of Domain Authority from 20 - 30, but from 70 - 80, is the most difficult task.
