You're the bomb, dotcom. We may not have been placing Amazon Prime orders or queueing up Netflix back in 1985, but the ".com" domain that allows us to do these very things in the blink of a eye was just getting its start. Today marks the 30th anniversary, and we couldn't resist rounding up a brief history of the domain we've come to depend on for so many of our daily clicks.
Symbolics.com was the first .COM domain name registered on March 15.
The first 100 .com domain names are registered.
The first Microsoft.com home page launches.
Amazon.com sells its first book online.
Google.com was registered as a domain name.
Facebook.com launches (known then as thefacebook.com).
Bing.com starts powering online searches.
On average, a .com domain name is registered every second.
