    Maybe we could have a small competition as to who can find the
    earliest registered domain name. I will enter astute.com;
    Domain Name: ASTUTE.COM

    Who remembers the times when could register .com ,.net and .org
    without paying ?.

    Yep thats cool, would be good to see what earlier registrants were
    doing. Its going to be a bit of history.. The Internet was a great equaller
    in many ways and so many business opportunities for people that
    wouldnt otherwise have managed to go into a business conventionally.
    Friend of mine I worked with as a van driver started an internet busines
    in 1998 and sold out in 2004 for £10M ,lucky sod.

    Very odd... both SUN & IBM registered on the same day, are they related in some way?

    symbolics.com 15 March 1985
    think.com 24-May 1985

    I think those are the two earliest .com's.

    Blimey, 1985. It really is mindblowing when you see
    how quickly the internet has evolved. I did not even know about
    the net till 1996 .
