    "Birth of the Internet" might be overselling it a little. Numa Numa Guy is from 2004.

    Get me something with a Geocities or Angelfire address...then we're talking.

    Welcome to GEN-OT, have a seat, we'll introduce you to the 23-year-old who will lecture you about how Democrats didn't try hard enough to improve the ACA, and once that's all set up you'll be assigned a socialist who supported Ron Paul up to 2015 to harass you forever.

    I had my own site before any of these... we gave up the domain decades ago. But, because we were experimenting with the technology, instead of being professional. Our site was very advanced for the time, since we would implement all of the stuff we successfully figured out, even if it served no point. We had everything from reactive tables to roll over image links. But, the actual content was rambling 15 year olds and cheat sheets for all Shakespeare plays.

    Fun fact, some Angelfire pages are still up, I had the pleasure of browsing through a few while searching for obscure collectors items.

    Geocities, however, is sadly finally dead for good as of last year. Only broken links on barren web boards remain now.

    Spacejam.com is still using HTML2 Frames. No, not iFrames, just. . . Frames.


    To be fair, site still works in Chrome/IE/FF/Edge so . . . . its better made than 90% of my sites.

    I was kinda hoping purple.com would still be around, but I just looked it up, and I guess it's owned by some mattress company now. Not quite "birth of the Internet" old, but I want to say it came along in the early 90's. Literally the only thing it had was a purple background with no other content. I remember using it a handful of times as a quick check to make sure Internet connectivity was working.

    Also I took a web design course once (back when Microsoft FrontPage was still a thing), and the intro "Baby's first web page" portion of that was basically making a copy of purple.com but choosing a different color.

    edit: someone registered http://theoldpurple.com. Only difference is that the original didn't even have that FAQ link.

    God the rage from that site. So many people that didn't understand it was fake.

    Nice to see MAME Action Replay Page (MARP) still going strong. Going back to mid-late nineties, we had quite a community on there.

    Wow! I could almost believe that.

    That's real old school HTML, and the text reminds me that e-mail spam is less of a nuisance now than expected.

    However, http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/MarkUp/Tags.html is allegedly from 1991; so even though they registered the domain name on September 18th 1986 (before I had connected to the internet) I'm pretty sure they added the web-page later.

    I remember bertisevil.com which was like a dark evil bert from bert and ernie.
