The Early Birds Of Domain Names

Ever wondered which was the first ever .com site? Or the first of the .org or .edu? Not only that, you can also find the first 100 .com domains registered. The first network of networks was built about 30 years a go. It is amusing to get these facts from dawn of the Internet. The fact that it took 2 years to register the first 100 .com names is a good reminder of the rate at which Web adoption has happened. Now we are talking of multilingual domain names, and I wonder if it takes even 2 hours for new 100 .com domains today. While you are at the site, take a look at its own domain name. Is that the longest?
