    Great info, lakelandprnting! Thanks.

    Why I didn't think of buying a domain in 1985?!

    There were no web sites in 1985. The web began in the early 1990s.

    The internet was used for other things - email, ftp, etc. - long before the web came into being.

    Actually that list is only of the dot coms. For example, the original dot edu's came into being in 1985:

    Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.edu

    edit: Actually I believe that list is the original dot coms that are still registered.

    reedit: Yup. The ones still registered:

    What boggles my mind is that microsoft.com wasn't registered until 02-May-1991! They were wayyyyyy behind the others.

    Then again, that's Microsoft for you. :rolleyes:

    Cheers, Hilander

    All those domains are now worth thousands if not millions :)

    People who already started buying domains in those 80s must be multimillionaires now...but I think one .com domain cost at least ten times than current price?
