MSN is an ISP and web portal that provides online information, entertainment, and communication services worldwide.
MSN was once a simple online service for Windows 95, an early experiment at interactive multimedia contents on the internet, and one of the most popular dial-up internet service providers. Since 1998, MSN has primarily been a popular web portal.
Microsoft used the MSN brand name to promote numerous popular web-based services in the late 1990s, most notably MSN.com, a web portal for national news, financial coverage, sports stories, video, health and fitness information, entertainment news and celebrity gossip, green-focused content, career advice, recipes, and more; Hotmail, a free web-based email service; and Messenger, an instant messaging service before reorganizing many of them in 2005 under another brand name, Windows Live.
Founded in 1995, MSN operates as a subsidiary of Microsoft Corporation and is based in Redmond, Washington.
