Index.hr is a Croatian news website,[3] launched in December 2002 and based in Zagreb. The news site covers politics, business, sports, show business, and features columns covering everything from gossip to political commentary. As of 2018, it is the leading Croatian news website.[4]

Index.hr was founded by Matija Babi? and was originally designed as a news aggregation website, providing news content from Croatia, Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The website quickly grew in popularity, and over time more original content produced by the growing staff was being added to the site, until it became a popular media outlet in its own right. Index.hr gained public recognition by exposing a series of scandals, the two most notable being the 2003 controversy stirred by a discovered recording of popular singer Marko Perkovi? in which Perkovi? publicly performed a song praising the World War II fascist Usta?e regime,[5] and the 2004 celebrity sex tape scandal involving Severina Vu?kovi?, a pop singer.[6]

Index.hr managed to keep its place among the top-visited websites in Croatia throughout the period, and has since launched a number of additional services, such as Bloger.hr (a blogging website) and Igra.hr (a website for online flash gaming). It also keeps avoiding paying taxes to Croatia Tax Revenue and has changed companies under which name is registered for many times. According to Alexa.com analytics compiled in October 2014, Index.hr ranked 5th most visited site in Croatia (1st most visited news site),[7] and 19th in Bosnia and Herzegovina.[8]
