Lycos Adds Extra Services

From The Search Engine Report
Nov. 5
, 1997

Lycos had added free email and other services to its site, putting it firmly in the same direction of Excite and Yahoo into becoming an online destination.

E-mail services are web based and offered in conjunction with iName. Users can have a standard address, of the form "myname@lycosemail.com." They can also pay $15 per year to have a specialty domain, such as myname@doctor.com.

Chat and bulletin board services have been introduced, and there is a new personal guide page. It can be customized to reflect personal preferences about news, weather, stocks and web reviews.
