Sun tied with IBM for 11th oldest .com domain name

Alan Coopersmith

Jottings.com has trawled through the whois records of domain name registrations and published a list of the oldest still active .com domain names - Sun & IBM tied for 11th place with both domains registered on March 19, 1986. (At the time, I was in 7th grade, learning to use my school's new Macintosh 512k and using the Apple ][+ at home, neither of which had any sort of connection to any other computers other than via floppy transfer.)

My first e-mail address was at a slightly older domain though - berkeley.edu, registered April 24, 1985.
