About Us


The Star Online

Since its launch on June 23, 1995, as Malaysia's first news website, The Star Online has always striven to provide readers with up to date breaking news, compelling content and insightful opinions.

Evolving with the times, our content includes current news, business, sports, community, tech, lifestyle and world news, as well as expert analysis and dynamic videos.

The website was recognised in 2014 as one of the best in Asia by the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA).

It serves as the foundation of an online community that has a million strong following on both Twitter and Facebook.

As the digital companion to The Star newspaper, The Star Online is part of a portfolio that offers content through print, The Star ePaper and a mobile app.

Readers on-the-go who want breaking news and business updates delivered to them can opt for our SMS services available via Maxis and DiGi.
