Happy 25th birthday.com

Did you know the first .com site was registered on March 15th 1985? And contrary to popular belief, the .com boom hardly started as a big bang with only five other .com sites being registered that year.

The first site was registered by Symbolics Inc and can still be found on the internet today at www.symbolics-dks.com (could this be the first World Heritage Web Site?).

For those of you with an inquisitive mind you can find a link here to the other 99 .com sites that were also registered: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_the_oldest_currently-registered_Internet_domain_names

Also, I decided to try and find the first web site in the world and it would appear to be this one, created by Tim Berners-Lee (father of the internet): http://www.w3.org/History/19921103-hypertext/hypertext/WWW/TheProject.html

There you go fact fans.
