The FTP Site Boneyard

This collection contains .tar or .zip files of the collections of these sites, which are then browsable using the Internet Archive's archive view functionality.

Created in 1971 (and refined in 1985), the File Transfer Protocol allowed Internet or network-connected computers to transfer binary and ASCII files between each other. To facilitate transferring of files in a pre-WWW era, FTP sites allowing anonymous or open-access connections became available worldwide. As they were often connected to machines with sizable resources, these FTP Sites became magnets for large amounts of data, totaling in the hundreds of megabytes (and later gigabytes) and allowing hundreds (later thousands) of simultaneous users.

As websites provided easier and easier access, FTP sites have fallen by the wayside as primary distribution channels, and decade-plus sites that were once the primary sources for various types of files have fallen into disrepair or quiet deaths.

Crawl of the FTP site ftp://www.dsma.dp.ua/ in April 2015. I struggled to compress because of the site's size and have used the "tar" method for the first time. I had to compress the files into three separate .tar files because the tar program stops compressing a .tar file once that file reaches 4.0 GB. I apologize if some files became corrupt in the process.

For many years, UNC maintained a web-accessible directory of student-created websites for web creation courses. In 2018, this collection was taken offline, but this 2018 grab of the website allows reference to the materials going forward. Thanks to Paul T. for this particular project. To browse the directory of files, click here .

This is a large mirroring of the contents of FTP.BLASTWAVE.ORG, a site dedicated to Sun Solaris packages. Containing roughly 83gb of materials, it is now useful for historical research. Most appear to be for Solaris 8, 9 and 10. (SunOS 5.8, 5.9, 5.10). To browse a textfile of the contents of the .TAR file, click here .
