The oldest and first ever registered domain name is http://symbolics.com/ and yes it's a still active domain that brings up a website.

Although the website is just an about page type website talking about what symbolics used to be.

The domain Symbolics.com was registered on March 15th 1985 which is 32 years and 149 days ago.
