Welcome to Vistaserv.net
Welcome! Vistaserv.net is a grass-roots web hosting initiative hailing from Thornbury, Australia. Inspired by the quirky web of the 90s, we allow users to create home pages, your own little sandbox on the World Wide Web, as it were.
We started Vistaserv because we want to create a virtual local community on the Internet, while giving people a place online that they can truly customise and call their own. Hopefully, we can share some of the wonderment and excitement of the early web, before big corporate walled gardens came along and told us what our online profiles should look like.
Go wild, add animated GIFs, select a garish colour scheme for your home page. Do everything you'd like to, with nobody to tell you it's not sufficiently Web 2.0! It's easy and totally free to use. We encourage you to take inspiration from what others have done, and learn a little HTML in the process!
What's happening at Vistaserv?
- 22-MAY-2020 Webmaster's Weekly Round-Up - 22 May 2020. Another week of cool home pages we've discovered on Vistaserv.
- 15-MAY-2020 Webmaster's Weekly Round-Up - 15 May 2020. The first in a weekly showcase of creative, weird and wonderful home pages from Vistaserv members.
- 11-MAY-2020 Guest Book fixed!. As many of you will have noticed, the Guest Book was glitchy yesterday :(. Thankfully, it was just bad coding on paul's part, and that has been fixed. No messages were lost, the DB query to display them was just doing a LIMIT 100 and showing.. the 100 oldest messages. Facepalm.
- 09-MAY-2020 Convincing-looking 90s fonts in modern browsers. We have added a thrilling blog post (our first!) about our journey towards making this web site look as retro as it does, by creating our own pixellated fonts.
- 28-APR-2020 Minor visual issues fixed. Thanks to our ever-patient first few users, we've identified and fixed a few visual glitches with input fields and buttons (form elements not rendering in Safari). With help from Jordan's awesome 98.css library we've fixed those. Let us know if anything else looks awry!
- 26-APR-2020 Vistaserv is live on the World Wide Web! We're glad you're here! Join us today to create your very own home page complete with gifs and pixelated fonts, send and receive electronic messages and chat in our real-time guest book!
