Posted Mar 15, 2010

Symbolics.com was the first domain name ever to be registered. The registration took place on this day about 25 years ago (March 15, 1985). Symbolics was a computer manufacturing company and now the domain name is being used as the personal blog of Aron Meystedt. About 668,000 domain names are currently being registered every month, but back then the rate was about 6 registered in all of 1985. [Mashable]
