30 years of dotcom--first 100 domains.

Sunday marked the 30th anniversary of the first ever 'dotcom' domain being registered. Symbolics.com (Originally a homepage for

computer programmers) was the first ever dotcom, followed a month later by Bbn.com (an American high-technology company) and

then another month later by Think.com (a supercomputer manufacturer).

There aren't many big tech names in the top ten (with the exception of Xerox and HP at 7 and 9 respectively) and despite its

reputation as being an innovator, Apple didn't register a domain until February 1997, making it the 64th oldest dotcom. There are now

approximately 275,000,000 dotcom domains in existence.

For more details 30 years of dotcom -- what became of the first 100 domains?
