FANDOM was created on 11th July, 1996 by Bear X to act as an ISP for therians. It was the first official spin-off site from AHWW. The site was shut down 31st May 2003.

In the 1990s, it was common for families to share a computer, this created problems for therians who were not prepared to reveal their situation to their family members, and sharing a computer made this difficult. was set up to provide services to the therian community in a way that was separate from those family computers.

Services provided by the site included:

  • email addresses
  • usenet newsgroup access
  • web hosting
  • technical support
  • telnet and ssh shell access
  • IRC server and access

This resulted in many members of the early community having email addresses and hosted websites which would become important to the early community.

It was one of the few sites which had any noteworthy information on werebears and berserkers.[1]
