I started collecting the list of strangest websites on the net since last year. Now, I have quite a few links in my bookmark and decided to share them with you all today. Of course, those are not something that you should visit everyday but you know, if you were like me, you might want to visit once. Some of them are really crazy and I can’t think of any reason why they created like that. maybe, web hosting and domain registration is extremely cheap for them. Okay. let’s take a look what I got.
- Another day, another word
- The World’s Hightest Website (a CSS Experiment )
- Longest Domain on the net (Letters only)
- Longest Domain on the net (Numeric only)
- The Last Page of Internet
- Do websites need to look exactly the same in every browser?
- Deleted Images
- Just Fu*king Google it
Another day, Another word
I found this site from Dreamhost (DHSOTM). It has only one word at the middle of the page. That word is changing everyday. That’s why that site is called another day, another word. Strange, hum? If you turn on the speaker, you will hear the voice too.
The World’s Hightest Website (a CSS Experiment )
This website is the World’s Highest Website. Currently, it’s 18.939 kilometers high (that’s about 11.77 miles). The following is the some fine print and technical details.
For the rest of the crew, here’s some fine print. This website is a CSS experiment. Due to its nature, there are some accessibility limitations, but anybody just slightly experienced will understand. The technical and design principles of this site are simple:
* One HTML container;
* pure CSS styling;
* no workarounds, filters, or hacks.
Known, yet interesting issues:
* For the record – Gecko-based browsers like Firefox show an interesting behavior when you want to make the site any higher (than precisely 18.939583 kilometers, that is), namely by “shrinking” or “collapsing” its main container;
* Internet Explorer doesn’t accept internal references behind the real action, and it’s unclear if the container’s height really is 18.939 kilometers (though it’s damn high – or long – nonetheless).
If you can come up with fixes or an even higher element, the formatting of which is broadly supported, email info at worlds-highest-website.com. Most likely, there’s some reward. And otherwise, if it’s found, it’ll be used ;)
Longest Domain on the net (Letters only)
URL : <link>
Can you guess who own the longest domain on the net? Google! of course. There are 63 characters in that domain. Why don’t you visit by clicking the link above? :)
Longest Domain (Numeric only)
URL : <link>
This is another site that has very very long domain. AFAIK, the max length of domain (without subdomain and surffix) is 6 but this domain name is 64 numbers. So, I’m really confused about that. maybe. it might be cuz of number. If it’s characters only then the max length might be 63. Please correct me if I’m wrong.
Note: Subdomains and domain suffixes are not included in consideration.
The Last Page of Internet
Did you know that there is the last of Internet? :) Some of you might already know about that since I posted about this in my blog last year. I wonder why the owner of that site keep on paying the domain registration charges and hosting fees for that page. I got one thought when I saw this. There is a number of people who are making money online. At the same time, there are a lot of people who are willing to spend money online. :)
Do websites need to look exactly the same in every browser?
I found this site in Dreamhost (DHSOTM). There is a question in title and an answer at the middle of page. So simple but strange! :)
I think that there are a lot of people who really hate the Microsoft Internet Explorer. They spent their money to show their hates.
- Microsoft Firefox **** : You should check out this site.. This site looks like so professional. And of course, it’s really funny.
- Dump Internet Explorer!
This site collected unsharp, moved, blurry and unfocused pictures from people. So, you can upload your photos that you are about to delete from your camera.

Just Fucking Google It
Don’t forget to google before asking something in forum. :)
That’s all for now. I will add more if I found some more sites. Yes, yes! You can also share me if you know some strange websites like above. Thanks. (Actually, there are three more sites in my list but when I check today, those sites are down.)
