PROTONET is a service that provides a range of Internet resources and services for vintage computer users. The Protonet service mainly hosts websites from the early days of the Internet that have been fully restored to order. Protonet also hosts several reconstructed FTP sites with large file archives. More content is being added daily.
Protonet is in BETA, and is going through a substantial development phase as we build the tools and documentation to support the service, while concurrently building up the planned extensive library of classic web sites and resources.
The turn-key solution for the Classic Internet Hobbyists.
The PROTONET service is currently in BETA ! Many features are still actively worked on, and a lot of links do not yet work. If you would like to sign up for updates, or would like to contribute in development, web site restoration, I'd be happy to hear from you. Feel free to Contact me.
Getting started is straightforward. All you need is a networked computer and a supported web browser. You will need to adjust the proxy settings to access the service. Many supported browsers have instructions how to setup in our quick start guide.
There are many ways you can join in development of PROTONET. If you have websites, gopher or FTP sites from 1995-2000 that you'd like to host on PROTONET, please contact us.
