==History==
 
===BBC Networking Club===
[[Image:BBC Networking Club 1994.jpg|200px|thumb|right|The BBC Networking club, 1994]]
The service's original home was '''''www.bbcnc.org.uk''''' (the "nc" standing for "networking club") launched by BBC Education on 11 May 1994 as a non-profit paid subscription service. For a joining fee of £25 and a monthly subscription of £12, members of the club were given access to an early type of [[social networking site]] featuring a [[bulletin board]] for sharing information and real-time conversation, along with a dialup internet connection service.<ref name="bbnc-times">{{cite web|url=http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/bbcinternet/2007/12/the_www_inforainforest_1.html|title=The BBC is launching an on-line service...|date=17 April 1994|work=The Sunday Times }} Quoted in {{cite web|url=http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/bbcinternet/2007/12/the_www_inforainforest_1.html|title=The WWW Info-Rainforest|last=Connor |first=Alan |date=25 December 2007|work=BBC Internet Blog|publisher=BBC|accessdate=2 October 2008}}</ref> Early members of the BBCNC production and development team included Peter Riding,<ref>{{cite web|url=http://uk.linkedin.com/pub/peter-riding/2a/a7b/2a4 |title=Peter Riding – United Kingdom &#124; LinkedIn |publisher=Uk.linkedin.com |date= |accessdate=1 October 2012}}</ref> Julian Ellison<ref>{{cite web|url=http://ie.linkedin.com/in/julianellison |title=Julian Ellison – Ireland &#124; LinkedIn |publisher=Ie.linkedin.com |date= |accessdate=1 October 2012}}</ref> Naomi Troski,<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.naomitroski.com/ |title=naomitroski.com |publisher=naomitroski.com |date= |accessdate=1 October 2012}}</ref> Gordon Joly,<ref>{{cite web|url=http://uk.linkedin.com/in/recursion |title=Gordon Joly – United Kingdom &#124; LinkedIn |publisher=Uk.linkedin.com |date= |accessdate=1 October 2012}}</ref> Emma Howard and Dominik von Malaisé.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://uk.linkedin.com/in/dominikvonmalaise |title=Dominik von Malaisé – United Kingdom &#124; LinkedIn |publisher=Uk.linkedin.com |date= |accessdate=1 October 2012}}</ref>
 
Within 12 months, the BBC offered "auntie" on-line discussion groups; web pages for select web-related programs and BBC departments; free web pages for associate members; and an internet connection service '''''www.bbc.co.uk'''''.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://web.archive.org/web/19961029213728/http://www.bbcnc.org.uk/ |title=Internet Archive Wayback Machine |publisher=Web.archive.org |date=29 October 1996 |accessdate=1 October 2012}}</ref> was introduced in 1996 though the old address also remained active for some time afterwards.
 
===BBC Online and beeb.com===
[[Image:BBC website 1997.jpg|thumb|right|200px|BBC website as it appeared in 1997]]
The BBC Director General [[John Birt]] sought government approval to direct licence fee revenue into the service, describing planned BBC internet services as the “third medium” joining the BBC's existing TV and Radio networks, achieving a change in the [[BBC Charter]]. This led to the official launch of ''BBC Online'' at the ''www.bbc.co.uk'' address in December 1997.
 
As well as the licence fee funded www.bbc.co.uk, BBC Worldwide launched the commercially funded beeb.com, featuring mostly entertainment focused content, with sites including Radio Times, Top Gear and Top of the Pops. Later, BBC Online launched licence fee funded web sites for Top of the Pops and Top Gear, resulting in some duplication.
 
Beeb.com was later refocussed as an online shopping guide,<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/bbcworldwide/worldwidestories/pressreleases/2002/01_january/beeb_motoreasy.shtml |title=Worldwide Press Office – beeb.com motoreasy |publisher=BBC |date= |accessdate=1 October 2012}}</ref> and was closed in 2002.<ref>{{cite web|author=Claire Billings |url=http://www.brandrepublic.com/News/142748/BBC-Worldwide-close-Beeb-Ventures/?DCMP=ILC-SEARCH |title=BBC Worldwide to close Beeb Ventures |publisher=Brand Republic |date=23 April 2002 |accessdate=1 October 2012}}</ref> beeb.com now redirects to the BBC Shop website, run by [[BBC Worldwide]].
 
In 1999, the BBC bought the www.bbc.com domain name for $375,000, previously owned by Boston Business Computing,<ref>[http://web.archive.org/web/19990508175641/http://bbc.com/ Boston Business Computing – OpenVMS Migration Solutions] Boston Business Computing</ref> but the price of this purchase was not revealed until 6 years later.<ref>[http://www.theregister.co.uk/2005/10/05/bbc_domain/ BBC blew $375k on bbc.com]. ''The Register''</ref> As of 2005, ''www.bbcnc.org.uk'' no longer exists.
 
===BBCi===
[[Image:Bbci website jan 2004.jpg|thumb|right|200px|BBCi website navbar, 2004]]
In 2001, BBC Online was rebranded as BBCi. the website launched on 7 November 2001. The BBCi name was conceived as an umbrella brand for all the BBC's digital interactive services across web, digital teletext, interactive TV and on mobile platforms.<ref name="bbcsnews0711">{{cite news|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/1643259.stm|title=BBCi heralds new interactive era|date=7 November 2001|publisher=BBC News|accessdate=2 October 2008}}</ref><ref name="whatisBBCi">{{cite web|url=http://www.bbc.co.uk/home/whatisbbci/|title=What is BBCi?|date=15 December 2002|publisher=BBC|accessdate=2 October 2008|archiveurl=http://web.archive.org/web/20011215000308/http://www.bbc.co.uk/home/whatisbbci/|archivedate=15 December 2001}}</ref> The use of letter "i" [[prefix]]es and [[suffix]]es to denote information technology or interactivity was very much in vogue at this time, according to the BBC, the "i" in BBCi stood for "interactivity" as well as "innovation".<ref name="guardian1101">{{cite news|url=http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2001/nov/12/mondaymediasection.bbc1|title=A fresh i for BBC|last=Gibson|first=Owen|date=12 November 2001|work=The Guardian |accessdate=2 October 2008|location=London}}</ref>
 
As part of the rebrand, BBC website pages all displayed a standard navigation bar across the top of the screen, offering a category-based navigation: Categories, TV, Radio, Communicate, Where I Live, A-Z Index and a search.<ref name="wwwibar">{{cite web|url=http://www.bbc.co.uk/home/whatisbbci/on_web.shtml|title=What is BBCi? – On the web|date=15 December 2002|publisher=BBC|accessdate=2 October 2008|archiveurl=http://web.archive.org/web/20011215101431/http://www.bbc.co.uk/home/whatisbbci/on_web.shtml|archivedate=15 December 2001}}</ref> The navbar was designed to offer a similar navigation system to the i-bar on [[BBC Red Button|BBCi interactive television]].
 
===bbc.co.uk and the return of BBC Online===
[[File:BBC.co.uk.png|185px|right|thumb|The BBC homepage in March 2010.]]
After three years of consistent use across different platforms, the BBC began to drop the BBCi brand gradually; on 6 May 2004, the BBC website was renamed bbc.co.uk, after the main [[URL]] used to access the site.<ref name="bbccouk">{{cite web|url=http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/pressreleases/stories/2004/05_may/04/bbc_co_uk.shtml|title=BBC website gets new look and new name: bbc.co.uk|date=4 May 2004|publisher=BBC Press Office|accessdate=30 September 2008}}</ref> Interactive TV services continued under the BBCi brand until it was dropped completely in 2008. The BBC's online video player, the [[iPlayer]] has, however, retained an i-prefix in its branding.
 
[[File:BBC Online April 2011.png|200px|left|thumb|The homepage in April 2011.]]
On 14 December 2007, a [[beta version]] of a new bbc.co.uk homepage was launched, with the ability to customise the page by adding, removing and rearranging different categories, such as 'News', 'Weather' and 'Entertainment'. The [[Web widget|widget]]-based design was inspired by sites such as [[Facebook]] and [[iGoogle]], and allowed the BBC to add new content to the homepage while still retaining users' customisations.<ref>[http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/bbcinternet/2007/12/a_lick_of_paint_for_the_bbc_ho.html A Lick of Paint for the BBC Homepage], bbc.co.uk, 13 December 2007</ref> The new homepage also incorporated the clock design used in the 1970s on the BBC's television service into the large header and a box containing featured content of the website. The new BBC homepage left beta on Wednesday, 27 February 2008 to serve as the new BBC Homepage under the same URL as the previous version.
 
On 30 January 2010, a new webpage design became available as a [[beta version]],<ref>{{cite web|author=London |url=https://id.bbc.co.uk/ |title=BBC – Homepage |publisher=Id.bbc.co.uk |date=1 January 1970 |accessdate=1 October 2012}}</ref> that by May 2010, replaced the old homepage. This homepage expanded on the modules idea and the customisation theme. The website allowed certain themes that interested the viewer to be tracked, via a new module. It also included a new 'Media Zone' where featured content could be displayed, with this new featured box being located across the entire top of the webpage, below the header. The Media Zone was also changed so that the content changed by running the mouse over the tabs. The header was again changed to include the headings of the major sections of the website, these being: Home, [[BBC News Online|News]], [[BBC Sport|Sport]], [[BBC Weather|Weather]], [[BBC iPlayer|iPlayer]], [[BBC Television|TV]], [[BBC Radio|Radio]] and more, spread out evenly across the header. This new header was included across the entire website. Despite the cosmetic appearance of the relaunch, the new website was actually relaunched using a completely different operating system, allowing the site's four different international versions to be changed and altered easier. It also brought their website layouts and operations closer to that of the main website.
 
Following the launch of the new BBC News Website, which altered the header bar on that site, in October 2010, the new style of header was launched across the whole website, starting off with some of the larger, yet not obvious, sites, such as [[Doctor Who]], first before relaunching all of the sites, including the homepage with the new look. This new style of header included the headings as before, but with the search box redesigned and aligned right, as with the links which are significantly smaller. Other links, such as BBC id login and mobile versions of the website also appear on the header, just to the right of the smaller BBC logo.
 
On 21 September 2011, a new BBC Homepage went into beta testing that was drastically different from those before it. The new homepage was based on feedback that stated that the current page was too narrow in focus and not distinctive enough, with the homepage not displaying the full extend of the BBC Online site and that some didn't realise it was the homepage. As a result, they launched a new version that featured as a centrepiece a revolving carousel of content on the BBC Online website, with filters beneath to restrict it to, and to show more of entertainment, lifestyle, knowledge and news and sports topics. At the top of the page, a new header has been inserted giving the date, the time through the use of the vintage BBC clock, as well as weather prospects for the next three days through the use of the traditional weather symbols. Below the carousel, boxes contain links to the most popular video material, web articles and pages on the site, as well as TV and Radio listings alongside an A-Z list of the BBC's top level domains.<ref>{{cite web|last=Thornett|first=James|title=Redisigning the BBC Online Homepage|url=http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/bbcinternet/2011/09/bbc_online_homepage_beta_producer.html|publisher=BBC Internet Blog|accessdate=17 October 2011}}</ref> This new site replaced the previous one on 30 November 2011.
