Computer Oldest registered domain name

Comment: Every few years the media runs stories about "the oldest domain
name on the Internet". It appears that this is in response to being
contacted by the owners of symbolics.com. They appears to promote
themselves to journalists and bloggers as the oldest domain name.

For example:

http://www.dailydot.com/news/happy-b...t-domain-name/

http://astounde.com/the-first-domain...-symbolics-com

http://www.domainware.com/2013/03/bl...-com-revealed/

Yesterday I contacted the journalist at the Daily Dot, about his article
and he updated the copy. The oldest domain name is in fact nordu.net. You
can see the post on our blog about it here:

It would be good for you guys to do a post about this, as it might help
journalists get their facts right.
