This page is about the furry web hosting and social networking site. There is also a Russian furry gallery known as FurNation.ru.

FurNation is a website specializing in furry social networking, and content sharing. On 8 December 2009, the site was shut down by its owner, Nexxus. The site was reborn as a Ning-hosted community on 23 December under the control of Reyedog. Hosted sites were restored at the start of February 2010.[1] As of June 2010 it had over 7000 registered members.

As of late November 2010, it is now a self-hosted furry social network containing galleries, music and video upload, forums, and chat.

FurNation operated FurPlanet, a small adult-oriented comic publishing unit/online store, producing titles such as FurNation Magazine until FurPlanet was purchased by FuzzWolf in March 2008.

Services[edit]

FurNation was a major establishment in the online furry community, providing a centralized location in which to find a variety of furry related content. In that time FurNation had gained not only a name for being a major player in furry information, art, and stories, but also a reputation for its periodic downtime. Some of these times have been relatively short, while others have been quite a bit longer. Because of this, many who maintained web space on FurNation also have another website.

Second Life and Furnation[edit]

FurNation Worlds was ran by Corsi Mousehold from December of 2009, till May of 2013. At it's largest point, there were fourteen sims, FurNation Alpha, Dragon, Dystopia, Fusion, Gryphon, Hell, Heroes, Noosphere Prime, Phoenix, Polaris, Prime, Purgatory, Vista, and Zagerion Forest.

As of June 1, 2013, FurNation in Second Life was reopened and new management (directed by Inferniel Solvang) took over the project. FurNation Prime is back online and previous management was let go. New management was installed using the new FurNation Administration group, and includes some of the staff from the Social Network side of FurNation.

Game server[edit]

As of 2011, FurNation has a Minecraft server at minecraft.furnation.com

In April 2012, the Minecraft server was shut down.
