Domain Name System Created; .com is Born!

how-dns-worksJanuary 1, 1985

The Internet’s Domain Name System is created. If only I had the foresight back then to start registering .com names!

NORDU.NET was the first domain created on this day, for purposes of hosting the first domain root server, However, the first domain to actually be registered was a couple of months later on March 15th, 1985.
