  • No database existed — nothing was stored in the database, there was no stack and front-end and back-end technologies or different layers to make it all happen just files and loads of files full of information.
  • There existed no search engine to crawl all the webpages and links, but only downloadable files and search FTP sites(Archie Query Form).
  • Dial-up internet connection was common in those days.
  • Blogging or comments were usually made work using guestbooks system so that it doesn’t bog down the main page with content.
