4chan opened on October 1, 2003. So far, it has been shut down due to lack of funding or hosting multiple times:

* 1st death: Sometime between October 10 and October 29, 2003.
* 2nd death: Sometime around November 22, 2003.
* 3rd death: January 3, 2004.
* 4th death: June 20, 2004.

On August 11, 2004, 4chan returned for its fifth incarnation, under new management. The site had previously died after several crapflooding attacks, lack of funding caused by a PayPal lockout, and lack of motivation from the site founder, moot.

On December 24, 2004, the site team launched world4ch, a discussion board modeled after 2channel and powered by Shii's new board software. It has 25 different boards, on a wide range of topics.

July 1, 2005 was a scare for the site's users, as the majority of boards were closed and a message from "moot's secretary" stating that site owner "moot" had abandoned the project and that the site would close in a few days by lack of funds was posted on the news page. Dubbed "Zero Hour" by users, it turned out this announcement had been made without moot's knowledge, and within a day all boards returned to normal.

On July 28, 2005, near midnight, /b/ reached its two millionth post. (For more information, please see the Wikiworld article linked at the bottom of this page.)

On August 29, 2005, shortly after celebrating one year of up-time and a panel at Otakon, an anime convention, moot announced 4chan was "literally out of money", and called for $20,000 to buy new servers and a year of hosting. Dubbing the period "donate or die" week, he hoped if the target was reached there would be no need for any more fund drives for another twelve months. Some users were skeptical as there was no way of knowing how much money was being donated, and there were fears the funds were simply being used for personal gain. In response, the administration put a PHP-based fund-meter on the site, which updated as funds were donated. The indicator, which had an appearance similar to the meme "longcat," has, as of September 23, 2005, just reached the $14,000 mark. To spur donations, a few female users took it upon themselves to help 4chan by posting nude pictures of themselves with "donate4chan" written across their chests in the /s/ board. Moot bought three servers, but cannot afford to colocate them.

On October 16, 2005, /b/ reached its three millionth post. The 3,000,000th post has a file with a UNIX timestamp after the 3,000,001st, which has caused some users to believe it was faked.
