The site was first hosted by AOL, but in March 1998 it moved to a new host, Tha DooM Shack. In June 1999 DooM News merged with its host and started using the moniker Tha DooMShack News. Control of the page was eventually transferred to DoomFreak.
In late 2000 Tha DooM Shack went permanently offline along with the entire Shack network, which was a killing blow for Tha DooMShack News as well. After the site's death DoomFreak planned to create a replacement, but never carried out these plans.
