.com History

.com was established in January 1985 and has grown to be the largest top level domain in use today. It was originally administered by the United States Department of Defense but today is operated by VeriSign who reported that in mid-2008 around 77 million .com domains were registered. The oldest .com is believed to be which was registered on 15th March, 1985.

Although .com domains were officially intended to designate commercial entities (others such as government agencies or educational institutions have different top-level domains assigned to them), there has been no restriction on who can register .com domains since the mid-1990s. The opening of the .com registry to the public coincided with the commercialisation and popularisation of the Internet, and .com quickly became the most common top-level domain for websites. Many companies which flourished in the period between 1997-2001 (the time known as the 'dot-com bubble') went so far as to incorporate .com into the company name; these became known as dot-coms or dot-com companies.
