About .com domains
The .com internet domain appeared in 1985 and has become to this day the most popular extension.
COM is an abbreviation of the word "commercial" and, at first, could only be used by Companies, being free.
The top five .com domain names registered were: symbolics.com, bbn.com, think.com, mcc.com, northrop.com, followed by other large companies (Microsoft, Xerox, IBM, Apple, etc.). The famous google.com appeared in 1996.
The .com extension passed the role for which it was created long time ago. In 1995 it was restricted from being registered for commercial purposes only and was made available to the general public, with the introduction of an annual registration fee.
Many of the start-ups, but not only, are thinking of .com as the first choice, precisely for its association with the big brands and for the trust it conveys. Today, over 150 million .com domain names have been registered.
Several known .com domain names: youtube.com, amazon.com, facebook.com, booking.com, twitter.com, instagram.com..
