Startpagina is a Dutch web directory, originally started by Durk Jan de Bruin[?]. It is remarkable in function, as its structure is completely flat (there are no super- and sub-categories), and it relies in part on visitors guessing the name of the category they are looking for. For instance, the category page for encyclopedias is at http://encyclopedie.pagina.nl (encyclopedie being Dutch for 'encyclopedia'). The name literally means 'start page'.

Durk Jan de Bruin started Startpagina allegedly to help his father find his way on the World Wide Web. Volunteers were used to add and manage categories. In 2000, De Bruin sold the site to publisher VNU, allegedly for 30 million guilders (ca. 13 mo. euro).
