The .com Internet Domain Turns 25

It was Charles Hornig who registered the first .com domain of the World Wide Web as we know it today. Hornig acquired to its manufacturer Symbolics computers. Interestingly, just over a month after registered the domain, Hornig noticed that only 1 of the 1008 servers email the time were properly configured to accept messages leaving the web address of your company.

Currently older .com Internet domain is managed by an investment firm, which bought it from the Symbolics in August 2009 and turned it into a blog about domains, hosting and other issues involving web. The original company (which now uses the domain ) is not even mentioned.

According to VeriSign’s data, every week more than 500 thousand new .com domains are registered and currently there are over 90 million of them. [The register]
