Raytheon : The domains of a multi-billion dollar corporation

The Raytheon Company is a major U.S. defense contractor, and industrial corporation, with core manufacturing concentrations in weapons and military and commercial electronics.

Raytheon employs a personnel of 61,000 and posted net sales of $24.069 billion dollars in 2016.

With all that in mind, Raytheon corporation is in possession of the 2nd oldest registered .com domain, BBN.com. The domain was registered on April 24th, 1985.

Raytheon acquired BBN Technologies in 2009, for $350 million dollars. Since 2014, BBN.com redirects to an internal page at Raytheon.

Surprisingly, the domain Raytheon.com was registered in 1995, perhaps because the company used RAY.com initially, a domain registered in 1986. RAY.com does not resolve to a web site, but it administers the Raytheon corporation’s domain names.

We took a look at the list of almost 500 domains administered by Raytheon, and found a few interesting facts, which we’re sharing today, exclusively.

Raytheon is in possession of the following three letter domains:

bbn.com
bbn.org
hai.com
ray.com
rps.com
rtn.com
rtn.news

A total of 9 domains were registered more than 20 years ago:
