Internet revolutionYouTube was given its name today in 2005. 14 year old this video sharing platform got its domain name. After getting the name it took 2 months for the website to develop.

The service was created by three former PayPal employees—Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim—in February 2005. Google bought the site in November 2006 for US$1.65 billion; YouTube now operates as one of Google’s subsidiaries.
