    Just for fun this, what was the first website you ever built, I use this loosely, basically anything you had to use html and css to make look how you wanted.

    Mine was a Geosite, anyone remember them? I think was well chuffed with it, it's dead now as looking back it should be.

    Looking back to then to what I know now is scary.

    Jeez. It's been so long. Wish I had kept the domain name that I still remember. I built my first in 1995-1996. Forget exactly when. It had the star wars background theme that was kinda popular lol

    Decided to make a little zip app and put it on another domain. It was on CNET I think for a while. It's been a long time. I have 0 design skills still but can code like a mother fucker.

    I started my first site in niche I have been working for 10 years offline and I suggest to all, who just start IM to do the same,
    you do not have experience in IM yet, but you are able to use your life time experience in IM journeys, site is still up and making me money till today.

    I started my first blogspot website about 1.5 years ago,as a newbie looking for the way to get some pocket money,didn't thought it will became anything more than that...
    Now fast forward to this year I created few actual wordpress websites with domain and everything and still can't beat the amount of traffic going daily to that site:D

    I've mentioned my first site 2 times on this forum (3 times now); first in my first post and the second time back in May.
    You read that right, it was an entire HTML site about dragonflies. I doubt that it still exists, but I would recognise that unsightly site if I ever saw it again. :cool:

    I was 9 when I had my first website. Although, I didn't set it up myself so I don't know if it counts. I built the first website about a year and half ago; it was some gaming hack site for PPI... lol.

    I wish I still had my geosite.. was very poor from what I build now but it's history and would sure show me how far I have travelled.

    For me, it was an internet marketing blog which I hosted in some shitty free hosting server. It used to get around 300 UVs per day and one unlucky morning, i woke up to see my site gone. I tried to contact them with lot many ways but did never responded. My whole site wordpress folder and mysql database was gone. Just like that --------->>> BOOOMMMMMMM!!!

    I lost hope, never built the site again. The domain name was gone. Anyways it was a .biz domain name inspired by some girl online marketer I can't remember her name whose site extension was .biz

    So, It is no more active!!!

    Nice thread anyway OP!!!

    Back in or around 1998 I built a website that was related to need for speed. Not sure if anyone remembers the MGON network, but I managed and designed a site for them. Sadly, their network shut down years ago so that goes to say the website is no longer active.

    It was 8 maybe 10 years ago and its still working. There are several errors, but its still up. I did it I think in frontpage? And it was about my then biggest internet love Next Door Nikki. Here you can see it (slightly NSFW, dont laugh please too hard) Funny is I put it on some hosting that I got for free from my then internet provider and even that contract must have been canceled at least 7 years ago, for some reason its still up. However my trully first page I created must have been when i was 13, but i never managed to upload it on server, I did not understand that index file must be named index, maybe if I did, my IM career would be much further now :)

    Created my first site in 1996, when I was a work study at college and created the schools first website. Just looked at wayback machine and had to laugh at how it looked back then.
    I've definitely came a long way since then!
