Dot-Comming Of Age

The ".com" is twenty five years old today.
 
Let's return to the thrilling days of yesteryear, when men were men, and Sex.com, which is up for sale with a minimum bid of $1 million, didn't exist.
 
 
A detailed look at the first five ever registered.
 
A cached copy of the very first website, ever.
 
The title for biggest domain? Is up for grabs.
 
Life before the Web. Yes, it existed!
 
It took twelve years for the one millionth website to be registered. Today, almost a million a month are registered.
 
Believe it or not, there's still a huge untapped market out there.
 
The hot topic now? Wireless & broadband. We barely have it in the US. Other countries have leapfrogged us. God bless the free markets, right?
