I bet all of these are worth a million dollars or more.
Wow, thats a nice list. Even if the domains were not being used for anything Google would still love them because of accumulated links and domain age. What I would really love to do is hack into one of them and just have my website up for a few hours. I bet the traffic would be phenomanal (I don't think thats the right spelling, somehow Very Happy ).

why should they ? maybe names like IBM, philips and adobe but the rest is far away.
Words like "think" and "sun" are really good domain names, (easy to remember etc) therefore the supposed great worth in money, I guess.
For the rest it's just about trademarks, which is a different discussion all together.
It doesn't look like anyone was having any fun on the internet in those days. Strictly business. Yahoo didn't show up until 1995, Google in 1998 and Myspace is only 5 years old.
Wow, almost all business names (most short too!). Nice list! Smile Thanks for sharing!
Strange that there's no Microsoft domain. Cool list Smile
And isn't there such list for other domains?
Wow, it goes back to 85... those are old hehe, older than me.
Wow, actually looks like it hasn't been changed in 15 years!
Great that you made a nice collection...!!!
dude_xyx was registered in late 80's I think. Its not in that list. Funny how no one remembered to take the worlds most valuable domain name till that.
Praise for the copy-paste post. Aren't we all just wonderful Sad
With regard to the absence of Microsoft related domains, as was painfully clear at the time, Microsoft seriously underestimated the importance of the internet and web related technology. Laughably inaccurate as ever, Microsoft's view was that it was of relatively little importance. This is partly why they have always appeared to be playing second fiddle to everyone else's technology and ideas ever since.

Their desperate attempt to kill Netscape early on was out of sheer desperation to regain the top spot. To be honest, it's probably a good thing that Microsoft did screw this up for themselves so long agao - they might easily have become a very dominant force in the web - and really, who wantes that?

The appalling Internet Explorer is bad enough, but imagine if Microsoft had played a major part in designing the initial explorations into web technology. We may have been facing the Blue Screen of the Internet every so often, with important files being transmitted to incorrect recipienets, servers randomly deleting files for no aparrent reason, and every third Wednesday the whole Internet would grind to a halt, and we'd have to organise a global reboot to get it started again.

Might have been wonderful for global feelings of united hatred, but we'd hardly be able to be here chatting like this.
truespeed Then(1998) - Now(2008).

The site has hardly changed in 10 years,also you would think the guy with the oldest registered domain name would make more of a big deal of it,he must get loads of traffic for that reason and that reason alone.

Continuing the theme HERES an emulator which shows you have the early browsers looked.
great list.

u could find it at wikipedia too
Nice, i wish i was alive i would have registered loads of domains and sold them all later on lol!
wow so great domains,I have learned.if I own one of them,I will be a rich man.
