The first .com domain name in the world is registered today in 1985

Daily TWiP - The first .com domain name in the world is registered today in 1985 - NashuaTelegraph.com (<< click headline to read more...)

Most still consider the internet as new technology still in it's infancy. But actually it's been over a quarter century since the first "dot com" name was registered. Technological advancements can be funny that way - sometimes we don't appreciate how long we've been using some "new" technology.
In 1985, Gribetz International introduced their first 3 needle-bar multi-needle chainstitch quilt machine - the DG900. This style of quilter quickly became the standard of the bedding industry. Several DG900's still remain in use today.

Symbolic.com, the first registered .com name, has faded into obscurity for most, but Gribetz International remains an icon of leading-edge technology in the bedding industry. See current Gribetz quilt machines here, and visit the GSG booth at Interzum to see the most diverse line of quilters ever displayed at one time.

We'll also pay tribute to the long, innovative history of Gribetz International in a special display in our booth, Hall 9.1, Stand C-020.
