|1985 / 1993 The very first Internet Domains
It was alread in 1985, March 15
that was registered the very first .com Internet Domain.
The very furst domain
was registered by a no longer existing Tech company.
The domain was later acquired by Aron Meysted,
a domain entrepreneur
who turned the domain into a Web Museum.
An interesting site to look at.
Only very few Technology corporations
and hi tech individuals,
almost exclusively based in the US
had the idea to register .com Domain names.
It took 10 years until the first Pioneers
of the Internet start become active.
