It’s tough being in your twenties.

You may still be young enough to party like a rock star, but no one yet respects you. (Try pulling up your pants and getting a hair cut. Maybe that will help.) Today domain names turned 25 years old. The first .com domain name, “Symbolics.com,” was registered by a Massachusetts computer company on March 15, 1985.

The first ten domains: Symbolics.com – March 15, 1985

BBN.com – April 24, 1985

Think.com – May 24, 1985

MCC.com – July 11, 1985
