Awards and Recognition

Since we launched whatis.com® on September 17, 1996, we've received a number of awards and been reviewed by a number of magazines, newspapers, and other Web sites. In addition, thousands of Web sites (like the Gloucestershire Business Breakfast Club and Jackson Preparatory School) and many individual users provide a link to our pages. You'll find the names of some of these users on our Credits page. Thanks to everyone!
