The official list of Zophar's Domain web addresses, from 1996 to present
Hey everyone,

I posted this somewhere else but I thought I'd clear this one up. I've received lots of questions around exact web locations for ZD over the years. This should clear it up. With the exception of the geocities date and URL, I can verify this 100%. Here goes:

www.geocities.com/?????? (September ? 1996 - November 9, 1996)

Pre November 9, 1996, when it was in beta stages, the exact URL lost to the sands of time...

www.ziplink.net/~shadow5 (November 9, 1996 - January 11, 1997)

The beginning. The alpha and the omega. Well maybe not the Omega. Ziplink wasn't very kind to ZD, as they did attempt to shut us down due to bandwidth usage several times and we didn't stay there too long as a result. However, ziplink of Philly started me on my internet quest and for that, I salute them!

zophar.ml.org (January 12, 1997 - March 17, 1997)

This was the monolith link in 1997 before we received a true subdomain. We were still hosted by Ziplink; it was basically a redirect.

silent.darkening.com/~zophar (March 18, 1997 -November 20, 1997)

Not too many people can remember this far back but this was during our forming stage. We were still trying to figure out our identity, and silent.darkening.com graciously allowed us some space to figure it out.

zophar.internexus.net (November 21, 1997 - March 22, 1998)

It was during this time that we started undergoing major face lifts which would continue all the way up until the purchase of our domain name, www.zophar.net, and the moving to ZTNet, where we have spent the most time! Internexus went bankrupt on March 22nd and Zophar's Domain went down for five days.

zophar.malicia.com (March 27, 1998 - June 12, 1998)

We moved to Malicia, courtesy of Ubu, who helped us while we planned our final move to ZTNet several months later.

www.zophar.net (June 13, 1998 - present)

The move to ZTNet complete, with Lev (Zach) our hero this time... we moved forward as www.zophar.net The rest is history!

I have verified this with my own official 4 year ZD backup from 1996-2000. So... we had 6 different URLs until we finally settled on ZTNet and became www.zophar.net. The end!

I think I hopped on about the time you were on internexus. Incidentally, you left silent.darkening.com on my 19th birthday.

And I am sad, because that was a long, long time ago and I feel old(er) now!

(wraith_), don't cry, we all get older (I'm 26 now). These days were the best times. We had big dreams and no clue. Now we have something called experience and memories.
It's good how it is. As you can see Zophar.net also improved over time so in the end everything's fine, right? :)

Sure thing there lad!

(wraith_) 08-13-2008 11:46 PM

Are you one of them fancy lads?

Zophar 08-13-2008 11:50 PM

Yeah, I think it might have been around internexus that I first found the site... I definitely remember malicia. It only took me around 5-6 years to finally bother registering at the forums after that (hell if I remember what finally got me to do so now... probably boredom). :P
