Ten years ago today, the pfsense.org(com/net) domains were first registered, marking the birth of the project as we know it. We began on a server named “projectx” a few months prior, going public after settling on a name on November 5, 2004. We’ve come incredibly far since then, having grown to one of the most widely used network firewall distributions in the world, with every metric we can count continuing to grow further.

Thanks to everyone who’s made the past decade possible. The best is yet to come!
