Celebrating 25 years of .com

Who registered the first .com domain? It was a computer manufacturer based in Cambridge, MA called Symbolics, Inc. on March 15, 1985. Amazingly, only five additional companies registered a domain name that year. www.25yearsof.com compiled a list of 75 honorees whose contributions helped shape the Internet culture. A panel of judges will select the final ”.com 25” who will be recognized on May 26. The list is a an interesting glimpse of the very diverse Internet “world” in which we all reside.
