  • Verisign Temporarily Suspends Site Finder
    by Katrina Moran
    November 2003
    Verisign temporarily suspends Site Finder. Site Finder served as a "Wild Card" service; that redirects Web traffic that would otherwise result in a "no domain" or "page not found" response. For example, when users search for incorrect or nonexistent Web addresses, the service sends those users to a Versign-operated site with links to alternative choices and to a search engine. ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) is calling for Site Finder to be suspended for the time being, while it works out what effect the system is having on other internet users.
