Some important things you probably didn’t know about WWW, Domain, and Hosting
Internet has become the lifeline of the today’s world. Right from education to entertainment, commerce, and industry, every industry is supported by the internet in one or the other. But not many people like to dive deep into the history of Internet.
The first instance of WWW: It was in CERN that the very first time Worldwide Web was used for the communication. The huge organization wanted to simplify the communication between scientists and that how the idea of wireless in-house communication via computers was born. Eventually, the first website was also created in 1991. It belonged to CERN and the name was info.cern.ch.
Interesting world of Domain names: People go to limits to buy unique and funky domain names. One nice fellow even went to the lengths of stretching the limits of a domain name and came with a “huge” name but most of them were redundant letters!
Growing TLD market: The growth of existing TLDs in the year 2016 was encouraging and .zip really ruled the market with 13th rank from its last year rank of 251. .nba and .you were among the fastest growing (YoY) TLDs of 2016 that maintained 89th and 92nd position. While the popularity of NBA and personal identity offered by .You is quite comprehensible, the low ranking of .shop is really surprising. It just managed to secure 174th rank that could be called a great disappointment.
Domain Trading: Due to the dramatic price fluctuations domain trading can be compared to stock trading. Though it is very difficult to beat the price of cream names like Insurance or Vacation rentals that were sold at 35.6 and 35 million dollars respectively, there are a number of domain names that are selling at exaggerated prices.
