The web site was initially an AOL member personal site managed by Justin. In March 1998 it was migrated to Tha DooM Shack's domain as a hosted site. In June 1999 DooM News merged with its parent host under a new moniker Tha DooMShack News. Control of the news updates page was eventually transferred to Jeff Lockhart (DoomFreak).
In late 2000 Tha DooM Shack went permanently offline along with its entire parent Tha Shack Network managed by Ookii Productions.
