Excite (stylized as excite) is a web portal launched in 1995 that provides a variety of content including news and weather, a metasearch engine, a web-based email, instant messaging, stock quotes, and a customizable user homepage. It is currently operated by IAC Applications (formerly Mindspark) of IAC, and Excite Networks. In the U.S., the main Excite site has long been a personal start page called My Excite. Excite also operates an e-mail service until August 31, 2021; registration for a new account was not obtainable for a short period but was obtainable again in late 2019.
The original Excite company was founded in 1994 and went public two years later. Excite was one of the most recognized brands on the Internet that decade, with the main portal site Excite.com being the sixth most visited website in 1997 and fourth by 2000. The company merged with broadband provider @Home Network but together went bankrupt in 2001. Excite’s portal and services were acquired by iWon.com and then by Ask Jeeves, but the website went into a steep decline in popularity afterwards.
