Yeah, we had a Heavy metal forum back with that .tk ext. I can't really tell how big it was.. but at least it was way better than those proboard forums.

Haha yeah. I initially made the jumo from proboards to invisionfree mostly because proboards wasn't mega secure. I remember .tk domains! I used to obsess over free domains as a kid.

Back then having a domain was expensive and personally i didn't have any income at all so.. that's all i could do, my .tk account mail still greets me on my birthday lol

Same here. Back then it felt almost the same but it was tough to connect the .tk domain the same way so its not just a redirect. I remember back then getting a domain with yahoo would cost 10 bucks a month.

I remember that the domain was 100$ a year and hosting was around 20$/month and you always come short for forums because it had only 500 MB or so.

If you had 200 users and all of them had avatars.. you came short in space just for that.. and posts were heavy as well with IPB..

Storage became cheaper and bandwith too. Domains are cheap as 10$ a year and hostings starting from 5$ a month.

I think web 2.0 made us forget the dark age of internet where no one knew anything about each other lol. Forums were always important but now the young kids never been into one.

Funny thing, now that InvisionFree's servers gone for good everyone is wanting to have their sites back.

I guess one really does need to appreciate what they have while they had it. I forgot about the 10 dollar a month domain fee for ages, myself. lol.
