AfghanSite was originally created by an Afghan student from Toronto. At the beginning, the look of AfghanSite was very simple and basic, but the original and modern ideas behind the site made it very popular. Back in 1999, many web sites were all offering the same thing; there was nothing fresh, new and unique out there. AfghanSite brought those fresh, new ideas forward and within a very short time, all those other sites were using AfghanSite as the basis of their design and content! By this time, students around the world had joined AfghanSite; the original creator encouraged other Afghans ideas in taking part to make AfghanSite for everyone. Within three months AfghanSite had its on stand alone server and was the only site (now a network) to host its own domain. Without the help of the AfghanSite team, none of it would have been possible! Within the fourth month AfghanSite established its own chat server and was still the only stand alone chat server run by an Afghan web site!
Visitors started to realize what AfghanSite was working hard to bring them and it shortly caught the eye of most Afghans out there. By the end of 1999 AfghanSite was the first to offer web sites to Afghans, and was the first to bring MP3 format of Afghan music to its visitors. By early 2000 AfghanSite had changed its look quite a few times since many talented Afghans had joined the AfghanSite team. Other Afghan web sites were not happy how AfghanSite had risen so far, so fast. Jealousy took hold and AfghanSite went down for one month. After being back up for two days all the old visitors had come back to AfghanSite and with more visitors than ever! By now the hate for AfghanSite was apparent but that only made it stronger. By then AfghanSite was being sponsored by an Afghan business and it helped a great deal. By May of 2001 AfghanSite opened a corporation called Communication Vision and it was the main player for all sites run by AfghanSite Network. AfghanSite then changed its look again and began to offer free web pages to its visitors, there was a buy and sell zone, which eventually became the first Afghan auction on the internet.
