    As someone interested in DNS and Internet history, I've always been enjoying facts and articles about early registered domain names. Wikipedia has a page on the subject, but the list is extremely short for .net and .org domains.

    TL:DR; Author documents data source and method for creating his list.

    Via Hacker News.

    Hmm so the nordu .net predated symbolics .com by a couple of months or so, and would be the first domain registered technically?

    DataCube is also there in the first hundred dot coms. Would be interesting to know if @bmugford hand-regged it or acquired later.
