Did you know…?

Domain names

A quick one-off post today: Did you know that Bozeman entrepreneur extraordinaire Greg Gianforte has had claim to the domain “” since 1995?

Registry records show the site is registered to Bozeman Technology Incubator Inc., a company run by Gianforte to mentor Montana entrepreneurs. The administrative contact on the domain is a Thomas Jinneman at RightNow Technologies. The domain record was created on Feb. 21, 1995.

In case you’re rusty on your Internet history, that’s just two years after the U.S. Department of Commerce, along with public and private organizations, created InterNIC to centralize the management of domain names online.

To round out the top-level domains:

  • is owned by the city of Bozeman
  • is owned by the Prospera Business Network
