1985– 25 years ago, Symbolics.com became the first domain registered on the World Wide Web. In fact, if you go to their website, they have a countdown clock to the historic event. The company made Lisp machines (workstations), most notably, the 3600 series. Since then, the site was purchased by XF.com Investments (now, XF.com) – Aron Meystedt. No purchase price was disclosed for the domain.Note – the first domain ever created was Nordu.net, but was never registered.
