oldest dot-com domains

Just stumbled across the list of the 100 oldest currently-registered dot-com domains. Number one is symbolics.com, registered on March 15, 1985… and amazingly, it looks almost as if the site itself is unchanged since March 1985!

Interesting to see how many household-word companies got their .com names registed nice and early — Xerox is #7, HP is #9, IBM and Sun tied for #11 — and just as interesting is how many of those 100 you’ve probably never heard of and never would.

Most shocking, though, is that none of them seem to have anything to do with porn.

folks before you had this to say:

    You missed another interesting thing. The name Microsoft is not on that list (unless I missed it).

got something to say about that?
