Well, once more, being the curious loveable lover of long lists that I was lead in search of the top performing websites in search engines. Well, after searching vigorouusly, I found that very data, presented using a great customizable webscraper called Velocityscape. Velocitscape appears to have a suite of powerful data gathering tools. Definitely worth the download of the demos at least. Spyfu, for example – an Alexa style web data repository – is powered by Velocityscape macros. I will strive to keep this data updated and repost it every now and then.

The 100 Oldest .com Domains Registered on the Internet.

Taking a break from marketing discount disney tickets, and to satisfy my curiosity, I went in search of the earliest adopters of the World Wide Web as we know it today and to my surprise there were WWW dns entries that go back as far as 1985…can you believe that…now who was browsing the internet back in 1985 (other than Al Gore). Anyways, the list below represents the 100 first domains ever registered on the internet…it includes some expected names, some unexpected names and some notable missing names. (NB. Entries registered on the same days are in random order on that day.)
