|The web hasn’t always been on ‘open’ place. In the previous millennium there was only one company available where you could buy a .com, .net or .org domain.
For the small price of 100 dollars and a two year minimum, you would get your own domain name. But back then there was still a big chance you would be able to buy a dictionairy word as .com.

Since then innovation halted and Network Solutions became one of the thousands anonymous domain registrars.
