N. Korea’s website was built with $15 and an American design template
The United States and North Korean relationship has been tumultuous, with a recent and big flare up when North Korea decided to launch a ‘satellite’ into space. The U.S. firmly suspected that N. Korea was launching a missile into space, which could be positioned to hit many countries including the U.S., saying the launch was a direct threat to the U.S. North Korea, not really giving an eff, launched anyways, and failed miserably.
Given the history between the two countries, it was a bit comedic to find out that the official North Korea website has been built using an American web designers site template, which they purchased for $15.00. The site template which appears on ThemeForest.net was built by Ignite Flash, which has a flash based theme to it.
The N. Korea site theme was actually discovered by Michael DiTanna, a junior at Fordham, when studying N. Korea and decided to look at their website, and view their source code. In the code he noticed several elements with American language and names, which helped him find the origin of the template.
