Jeff has written up a great post about the history of and includes screenshots from the last while, and it makes for a fun tour down memory lane for me as I have been a WordPress fan since long before the site was developed to become what it is today. has been around for a long time, long before I even knew there was a WordPress. Upon browsing through the results that the internet archive has, it’s very interesting to see the progression of the site/service. At one point, it looks like Matt or Automattic lost control of the domain but eventually got it back. Also worthy of note are the links to which was a service that provided opensource project domains. I have no idea if WordPress was an open domain or not but it certainly appears as though was.

I highly suggest checking out WP Tavern to read the full post.
