Ever wonder what the oldest registered .com domain is on the Internet? After all, they haven’t always existed. In fact, it was just 24 years ago this month that the oldest domain was registered. It was www.symbolics.com, owned by the Symbolics, Inc. company who, back in the day, was a leading software development firm with software projects designed back in the 1980s which appear very much like modern software designs seen today.

Their domain was registered on March 15, 1985 — when the Internet was brand new.
