yes, indeed.

But for the records, the oldest domain is enea.se.

One of the members at NP had contacted the .SE registry regarding the domain name enea.se and got the following information.

Ämne: status of enea.se

Hello,

I would like to receive clarification on domain name enea.se please.
According to whois the name was created on 1983-04-07, so it could be
the oldest domain name known.

But the .se TLD was only added to the root on 04-September-1986
according to IANA.

Can you explain the discrepancy ?

Kind regards,
<name>

Hi <name>,

We are glad that you asked the question, because it forced us to make
some digging into our Internet history!

To start with, the name enea was probably expressed like:

!mcvax!enea!ber

Which was the name registered by the time. This was an effect of the
fact that Bjorn Eriksen (ber) was appointed to allocate IP addresses
or maybe an effect that they actually asked for an IP address for
Enea, and got the name as a result.

MCVAX had IP early and we wrote *.se through UUCP, we consider it to
be seismo!mcvax!ena!ttds to reach the Swedish Royal Institute of
Technology (KTH).

We had MX records for .SE before we got name servers that could
understand IP (which was implemented as 56 K sattelite connection to
JVNC)....

So, in short, enea was registered, but not as a domain since the
domain name system wasn't invented yet.

Kind regards
