First Ever Registered Domain Changes Owners After 25 Years
During the same year that you sat in a movie theater chomping on popcorn watching Marty McFly bend the time-space continuum, a computer manufacturer headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts laid claim to the first ever registered domain name: Symbolics.com.
You may recall Nordu.net as the first domain name ever created, which dates back to January 1985. But it wasn't until March of that same year that Symbolics.com would go through the appropriate DNS process to be the first domain ever registered, after which it remained under its original ownership for a quarter of a century. Now almost 25 years later, Symbolics.com finally changes hands following XF.com Investments' acquisition of the domain for an undisclosed sum.
It's unclear what the future holds for the Internet's first-ever registered domain name, or for Symbolics, which largely fell out of relevance long ago.
