The first dot-com domain was registered by Symbolics, Inc. on March 15, 1985. Symbolics, Inc. was a computer manufacturer that created machines that ran the LISP programming language and was in operation until July, 2005. After that a privately held company bought its intellectual property and assets and continues to operate under the name Symbolics but using the symbolics-dks.com domain name. The new Symbolics company sold the symbolics.com domain name to a domain name investment broker called xf.com in August, 2007.

Happy anniversary to dot-coms everywhere!
