Topic: The first ever registered .ca domain name

I suspect most members of DN.ca already know this, but the first ever .ca registered was upei.ca, the website of the University of Prince Edward Island. It was registered Jan 12, 1988.

Here is an article University Affairs did on it on the 25th anniversary of the registration.

I didn't know that Bob, I would have figured a choice name would have been registered first.

Re: The first ever registered .ca domain name

Is it possible to get a list of the first 1000 registered? It would be interesting to see who got the best ones first.

Interesting fact.

Thanks @Bob Hawkes!

I also covered this topic in January this year, which has a few additional interesting facts such as the second domain ever registered and screenshots of what these first .CA websites looked like:
