Why is symbolics.com a significant name on the internet?
Symbolics.com was the first domain name registered on the internet. It took place on 15 March 1985. It was registered for a computer manufacturer which is now no longer in business, but the domain name is still operating. Domain names were useful even in 1985 for things like e-mail - but only really became essential after the creation of the World Wide Web in 1989.
