In the last 24 hours, 1,776,359 .com domain names were registered. Assuming that 75% of these domains are registered for less than five days before the registrant dumps them and requests a a refund (also known as domain tasting) That still leaves 444,089 domains registered daily. That’s over 18,503 an hour and an average of 308 domains registered per minute. Domain names today are being registered at an incredibely fast rate but this has not always been the case. In, fact it took overy a year and a half to register the first 100 domain names. You may be familiar with Symbolics.com being the first domain registered, but incase you haven’t memorised the other 99, here is the list of all 100 domain names that were registered between March 15, 1985 and November 30, 1987.
