    I was watching How a Former Marine Built GoDaddy Into a Billion-Dollar Business and Bob Parsons shared an interesting fact about GoDaddy at the 38:55 mark.

    In November 2000, GhettoJustice.com became the first domain name ever registered at GoDaddy.com's registrar.

    I was curious about the domain's history. After I researched it, I decided to share the results.


    Mar 6, 2001, the website was showing:
    1117004400.jpg

    The domain has mostly been under privacy but not in July 2007:

    September 29, 2011, the website began showing:
    1434465623.jpg

    Almost 16 years later, the domain name is still at GoDaddy today:

      Domain Name: GHETTOJUSTICE.COM
      Registrar: GODADDY.COM, LLC
      Sponsoring Registrar IANA ID: 146
      Whois Server: whois.godaddy.com
      Referral URL: http://www.godaddy.com
      Name Server: NS15.DOMAINCONTROL.COM
      Name Server: NS16.DOMAINCONTROL.COM
      Updated Date   : 04-nov-2015
      Creation Date  : 03-nov-2000
      Expiration Date: 03-nov-2016
    And there you have it: a little knowledge from the domain history books.

    The first domain registered at GoDaddy was a racist practical joke. Who would have thought?

    I registered my first domain with GoDaddy on Dec 4, 2000.
    Soon after, I helped them patch a security hole exposing other people's accounts.
    Domain transfers were done manually and required a processing fee.
    Those were fun times. :D
