The story of Alex Tew`s Million Dollar Homepage

The million dollar homepage is a website conceived in 2005 by the pixel millionaire Alex Tew, a student from Wiltshire, England, to raise money for his university education. The home page consists of a million pixels arranged in a 1000 × 1000 pixel grid; the image-based links on it were sold for $1 per pixel. The minimum purchase was 10x10 pixels. The buyers provided tiny images to be displayed on it, a URL that the images were linked to, and a tagline to appear when you hover over the link. The aim of the website was to sell all of the pixels in the image, thus generating a million dollars of income for the creator.

Launched on 26 August 2005, the website became an Internet phenomenon. The Alexa ranking of web traffic peaked with place 127.
