This is a unique opportunity.
DEC.com is the 5th oldest domain name ever registered on the Internet.
Originally registered by the Digital Equipment Corporation in 1985, that company was later acquired by Compaq in 1998. Compaq merged with Hewlett Packard in 2002, and the DEC.com domain name was an asset that HP acquired in the merger. HP has contracted with Heritage Auctions to sell DEC.com publicly, and we feel this is an opportunity unlike one that you will ever see again.
There are over 260,000,000 domain names registered.
Thousands of domain names are being registered each day. Yet, DEC.com will always be the 5 sup th /sup oldest domain name ever registered. Not only would DEC.com be a great corporate brand, the historical significance of this asset is what makes it very desirable. DEC.com was registered in September of 1985, only missing Symbolics.com (the first registered domain name) by a few months.
DEC.com was well ahead of its time. DEC.com predates Internet pioneers such as:
Owning one of the domains that essentially helped create the foundation of the Internet is an opportunity that doesn't present itself often. It is likely that once this name is sold, acquiring it will be much more difficult. Due to the historical nature of DEC.com, we place a value well beyond the listed reserve price. This is an incredible opportunity that you simply should not pass up.
