Domain name registrations were free till 1995
The Internet is a big requirement for all, now it is necessary after jio launched mostly peoples are using internet Nobody really knew what the internet was capable of back then and this was a huge opportunity for people buy all kinds of the domain names.
It was in 1995 that a company called Network Solutions was granted the rights to charge people for domain names. And it was too expensive: prices typically started at $100 per two years of registration.at present it is very cheap now to purchase a domain name.
As much as 30 percent of this was a fee that went to the National Science Foundation to create an ‘Internet Intellectual Infrastructure Fund’. This fee was reversed in 1997, the charge down to $70 for two years.

3. QWERTY was designed to slow down your speed
this fact is really amazing: QWERTY was designed to slow down your speed.There are actually two theories about this. The first is starts to make sense when you look at simple manual typewriters. If someone tried to typing too fast, the keys would jam. QWERTY placed common alphabets at a distance from each other and slowed typists down.
Another theory is the telegraph operators designed the QWERTY layout because it was faster and easier to decipher Morse code.
Either way, there was no reason to keep using the layout, but it stuck and there was resistance to change. You can actually change your keyboard layout to the faster Dvorak layout in the language settings. but now it’s a touchscreen smartphone.
