What is the first domain name ever registered?

Symbolics.com is the very first domain to be registered on the Internet. It was registered 26 years ago on March 15, 1985 by the Symbolics Computer Corp., a computer manufacturing company headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 2009, the domain was sold to XF.com Investments for an undisclosed sum.

Symbolics.com is the first of 200 million (200,000,000) domains to be registered. Approximately 100 million (100,000,000) of those registered domains are .coms.
