I registered in '87 and it's now it's in the "first 100".

So 6 in '85 does not seem completely out of whack.

I suspect was the first ".com" but I don't really know.

You can guess who the first .edu's were - just look at an old arpanet map.

(yes, there I was, sitting on my horse - in '87 - watching the prairie
grass blow and wondering what the *hell* those long iron rails were
for... little did I know they would bring 63 million settlers! :-)
