Sun.com To Be Decommissioned – 11th oldest Domain

March 16th, 2011 Comments off

Sun.com to set and go dark on June 1st, 2011

According to iwhois, Sun.com is the 11th oldest domain name together with ibm.com, registered on March 1986. Oracle, who purchased Sun Microcomputers in 2009, is apparently now decommissioning the brand and sun.com domain according to a blog post on the OTN garage blog. The domain had been redirecting to a Oracle site for a while and the post states that most of the site content has already been migrated.

According to responses to the comments on the blog post blogs.sun.com will continue to function for now, so it appears that the domain is not going up for sale immediately. The current expiry date is 20-Mar-2012.  Other commentators also question what will happen to other subdomains, such as the java.sun.com which is embedded on many websites using Java applets.
