Well well well, looks like VeriSign had to shutdown its sitefinder service after ICANN gave 36 hours notice to cut it off. Sitefinder was a “service” which redirects you to VeriSign’s website if you type in a non-existent domain. This was done by placing wildcard entries in the root DNS servers…which causes problems all across the board with security and anti-spamming software. Dealing with me I can say VeriSign has had a history of poor business, I particularly dislike their lack of security. But be light-hearted, they only control .com and .net ….org is still free for the elite.
