About the .com domain
Instantly recognizable, the .com extension is the gold standard for domain names. One of the original and most
popular top level domains (TLDs) on the web, a .com domain shows you mean business.
The .com domain extension was created back in 1985 as one of the first six TLDs when the domain name system (DNS)
was first implemented. From the beginning, .com was considered a trusted TLD before the Internet as we know it even
The very first website to claim the .com domain name was Symbolics.com, a computer manufacturer. Since then, over
130 million .com domains have been registered, greatly outpacing every other popular TLD.
