! NOTE !
Like most 'LINKS' pages on the web, there will, no doubt,
be more and more dead links on this page over time.
It may be years at a time before I return to this page to
remove dead links and replace some links with better links.
In the meantime, try 'WEB SEARCH' links provided on this page.

Table of Contents:

(links to sections of this page, below)


The links in some the sections, below, may be in numero-alphabetic order --- by web-site title or by a web-page keyword.

Note :
You can use the 'Find' option of your browser to find keywords on this page,
such as 'support' or 'mail' or 'spam' or 'network'.

ISP - COX COMMUNICATIONS pages

Some handy web pages -- of COX COMMUNICATIONS:
(a provider of phone, internet, and cable TV services)

< Go to Table of Contents, above. >

< Go to Home page. >
  • www.cox.com/myconnection/home.cox
    (a 'busy' home page with news links and links to info on TV services etc.)

  • www.cox.com/residential/home.cox
    (a similar Cox 'home' page ; Cox makes contacting them or their services quite confusing --- by phone or by web ; 'MyAccount' and 'Support' links are available from either of these 2 pages ; using 'www.cox.com' gives you this page, in 2015)

    My suggestion: The Cox home page should be as simple as the Google search page. Cox basically provides 3 services: phone, internet, TV. There should be three links on their home page, with these 3 words as their titles. Clicking on any of these links takes the user to a page with a 'Support' option tailored to that service. (If necessary, have a 4th link on the home page --- 'MyAccount'.) The same simplicity should apply to their phone menu system, which is atrociously bad. It is designed to keep you from talking to a person --- even when their menu options do not apply to your issue. Apparently their CEO has never had to go through the menus.

  • www.cox.com/residential/support.cox
    Takes you directly to a Support page (in 2015).

    Cox Personal WebSpace info:
  • Back around 2005-2009, Cox had an article on 'How to: Publish Your Personal WebSpace using an FTP program'. But Cox seems to have discontinued their web-space service at members.cox.net (dead now). They still provide e-mail space (in 2015), but no space for personal web sites.

    For web-site space, I went to 1and1.com. See below.

Some handy web pages -- of 1and1.com:
(a low-cost web-hosting service provider based in Pennsylvania)

Some OTHER ISP sites

    (providers of internet-connection and/or website-space and/or email services)

< Go to Table of Contents, above. >

< Go to Home page. >
  • AOL (America On Line) - at www.aol.com
    (It's hard to find what ISP services AOL provides, in 2015. Any?)

  • AT&T Worldnet, ISP - at www.att.com
    (From this page, it's hard to tell whether AT&T is in the internet connectivity business anymore. I guess it's under 'Uverse', in 2015. I guess we are supposed to know that. Such a meaningful name.)

  • Canadian ISPs - at www.canadianisp.com

  • EarthLink Home Page - at www.earthlink.net
    (For info on a topic, use the Search field at the top of the page)

  • EarthLink Web Hosting info - at www.earthlink.net/web-hosting/

  • Juno ISP - at www.juno.com
    (Gee. A home page that makes clear what services they offer. Good work, in 2015, Juno.)

  • Microsoft Network ISP - at www.msn.com
    (There used to be, around 2006, a 'Services' link at the bottom of the MSN home page. Congratulations, MSN. You have made it as hard to find what ISP services you provide as AOL and ATT have. Apparently you just want to offer a very 'busy' page of links to news and celebrity gossip --- like about a gajillion other sites provide.)

  • Netscape ISP - at www.getnetscape.com
    (Gee. Like Juno above, Netscape makes it clear what services they offer, right up front on their home page. Nice work, in 2015, Netscape.

    I thought Netscape was long gone. It appears that AOL owns the name now --- according to small print at the bottom of one of the pages of this site.)

  • Net Zero ISP - at www.netzero.com
    (In 2015, a 'Services' link on their pages lets you know what they offer.)

  • People PC ISP - www.peoplepc.com
    (Like Juno and Netscape above, PeoplePC makes it clear what services they offer, right up front on their home page. Nice work, in 2015, PeoplePC.)

  • Road Runner ISP - at www.rr.com
    (It seems that between 2006 and 2015, RoadRunner became a Time-Warner property. And, in 2015, this page offers services through either BrightHouse Networks or Time-Warner Cable --- at www.twcc.com)

  • Verizon On-line ISP - at www.verizon.com
    (In 2015, Verison offers a 'Services' link at the top of their page. Much clearer than ATT and AOL.)

'WEB DIRECTORY' Pages of ISP-info

< Go to Table of Contents, above. >

< Go to Home page. >

It seems that 'web directories' are dying out. Google and Yahoo closed theirs down around 2014. Then around 2017, the directory from which the Google and Yahoo web-directories were spawned --- the DMOZ "Open Directory Project" closed down.

It seems that it is just not feasible for a team of people to keep up with all the sites that are going dead and the new sites that appear.

About a year after the dmoz.org site closed down, it appears that a new web-directory site --- curlie.org --- arose from the ashes of 'dmoz.org'. It remains to be seen how long that web-directory lasts.

Following are a few links related to 'web directory' sites.
