The domain name com is a top-level domain in the Domain Name System of the Internet. Added in 1985, its name is derived from the word commercial, indicating its original intended purpose for domains registered by commercial organizations. Later, the domain opened for general purposes. The domain was originally administered by the United States Department of Defense, but is today operated by Verisign, and remains under ultimate jurisdiction of U.S. law. Verisign Registrations in domain are processed via registrars accredited by ICANN. The registry accepts internationalized domain names. The domain was one of the original top-level domains on the Internet when the Domain Name System was implemented in January 1985, the others being edu, gov, mil, net, org, and int.
