The first site, born in the fall of 2004, was hosted on Tripod and was called Insane Mind. After a few months I was introduced to 50megs.com by a friend, a hosting site which offered more freedom with coding. There I purchased my first domain, eternal-sorrow.net, along with my first hosting plan, and began experimenting with HTML and CSS. I decided to move to another, much cheaper, service at Pixelled Solutions, which through numerous names and ownerships found me in with Host Solutions. The site design itself had gone through countless changes by then, and I honestly am not sure what number of layout it is currently on.
Upon arriving at Pixelled Solutions, I finally decided in earnest to learn graphic design. With a few links of tutorials, a quick ability to learn coding, and some less than helpful abilities to design, I began to create layouts. A graphics section and several other pages were added to the fanfiction focus, which grew according to my interests. The time came to move when, for a month, my hosts servers became overloaded with too many hosted accounts and the site was unviewable. Thus the move to HostGator occurred, the first truly professional website service the site had yet come across.
After the move, the time came to decide whether the site name Insane Mind reflected the content. After much delibration, the name was changed to Animara to reflect both the newly purchased domain name and the growing professional style of the site as a whole.
When a few years had come around and with much deliberation, the site was moved to the Web Hosting Hub, a relatively cheaper host with more options.
