    I have owned one of those :)

    http://www.nominet.org.uk/news/latest/?contentId=7740 - .UK turns 25 though.

    I am guessing that with the start of Nominet some of the reg dates were fudged , so unlike .com and the like there will be no firm 'first'.

    Oddly enough I did ask Lesley Cowley what was the first .uk regged, no answer as of yet, however I would hope Nom + staff have better things to do!

    Just goes to show how things have changed, very few are generics or seo targetted.

    The PRSS dates show up the effective dates registered do they not, rather than the whois tendancy of saying 'before Aug-1996'?

    I suspect Nominet have a fairly comprehensive archive which they inherited from the EUNET GB Administer/Naming Committee days anyway.

    My main domain is pre-nom this shows as "Registered on: before Aug-1996" via the whois, but via the DAC shows as 1995-07-21, so I guess they must have the data and choose not to display it on public systems.

    Going by that list I'm guessing they don't publically show the pre-nom dates because they're not accurate. Just a guess though.
