Last minute reprieve

Hej! Den här webbplatsen och allt annat innehåll under home.swipnet.se är sedan 18 september 2014 då webbhotelltjänsten Swipnet stängdes ner arkiverat som del i .SE:s Internetmuseum. Allt material är fortsatt synligt och sökbart på webben tack vare ett samarbete mellan .SE och Tele2, och vi har därigenom säkerställt att en viktig del av den svenska internethistorien bevaras för framtiden.

Om du som upphovsman vill att din hemsida från Swipnet ska tas bort ur arkivet, eller vid andra frågor om innehåll på home.swipnet.se, kontakta .SE:s kundtjänst på info@iis.se.

English translation:

All material remains visible and searchable on the web thanks to a collaboration between SE and Tele2, and we have thus ensured that an important part of the Swedish Internet history preserved for the future.

If the author want your website from Swipnet to be removed from the archive, or at other questions about content on home.swipnet.se, contact .SE's customer service at info@iis.se.

Site structure

  • There are three kinds of sites on home.swipnet.se:

How can I help?


Please donate to the Internet Archive. The Internet Archive will be hosting all these files by making them available through the wayback machine. The space is cheap, but maintaining the files on the server is not.

To illustrate the costs of permanently storing 1 TB of files: $2000
