Webmonkey is a popular online tutorial website composed of various articles on building webpages from backend to frontend. The site covers many aspects of developing on the web like programming, database, multimedia, and setting up web storefronts. The content presented is much like Wired magazine but for learning to design web content. Webmonkey has content applicable to both advanced users and newer internet users interested in the underlying technologies of the web. In 1999, it introduced Webmonkey Kids, a web design tutorial site for children.
Webmonkey was closed in February 2004 following a round of layoffs in the U.S. division of its parent company, Terra Lycos. It was reopened later in February 2006, and mothballed again later in 2006.
