found a 1.0 version!
Another nice find!
Brings back memories of making pass-through SLIP and PPP connections and browsing with LYNX.
(I wrote my own "doorway script" and hooked up a TSX box to the back of my TBBS system using a DigiBoard and some serial breakout-boxes I had to wire to get the connection right -- this was before TBBS owner Phil Becker and Bob Hartman created the IPAD -- or "Internet Protocol Adaptive Device" -- their's was the original "IPAD" -- not the new one that company named for a fruit sells now --- and Microsoft still didn't have a TCP/IP product or their own website for some time after I did -- around 1993 1/2 I ran one of the first of the 500 or so public ISPs in existence at the time with 14 dial-up lines and a T1 line installed in my house).
...and I am pretty sure domain names were free at first -- note this version of the template makes no mention of fees.
There must be an earlier version, (or this is revised v 1.0), since this one mentions:
If you regularly submit domain applications, you will note two changes in the registration form. Section 0 has been added to indicate the nature of the registration action, and the Purpose section of the registration has been moved from the end of the form to Section 1.
..and to keep this on topic, I guess if I had a time machine I would have created GoDaddy -- Bob Parsons made a few billion cutting into the sweet deal Verisign/NetSol got from the NSF.
