The First ".Com Domain Name

The first .com domain name that was ever registered was Symbolics.com, on the 15th of March 1985 by the now defunct Massachusetts-based computer manufacturer Symbolics.
Symbolics was founded by former employees of the MIT AI Lab and their associates for the purpose of building Lisp machines (computers that ran the Lisp programming language) and related software. Lisp machines were considered the first commercially available computer workstations, though the word "workstation" had yet to be coined at the time.
