Tripod was a website/web-hosting service launched in 1994 that was initially aimed at college students. It offered a simple webpage builder, and became known as a place where users could create free websites; it was a competitor of GeoCities and Angelfire. At one time, it hosted numerous fanfiction websites, both single author pages and multi-author archives. The site was acquired by Lycos in 1998. In 2001, Tripod purged a number of fansites without warning. There are still some fanfiction websites located there, but many fans have migrated elsewhere.
