logo_25yearsofdotcom.gifThis year marks the 25th anniversary of .com (dot com). In March 1985, the first .com domain name was registered, www.symbolics.com, igniting the birth of the consumer Internet that, 25 years later, continues to transform communications, commerce and our society as a whole.

And to commemorate this silver anniversary, a Website -- www.25yearsof.com -- has been launched to celebrate Internet innovation as well as to showcase the innovators and entrepreneurs who have shaped the Internet.

Little late in posting this but the new VeriSign.com homepage is officially live. It was made official before the new year after conducting tests to determine which of several designs was performing best. The winner was determined after examining usage and analytics patterns from visitors to the site over approximately a quarter. We conducted A/B tests on a couple of new designs along with the original homepage.

With the redesign, the intent is to improve your overall user experience by updating the look and feel of the design so it is more pleasing to the eye, surface more relevant content, and improve the overall usability. We know that our...

Doing your holiday shopping? Here are some quick tips for staying safe online: 1) Make sure site is secure. Look for some kind of trust mark such as the VeriSign Check. Click on the check to ensure the check is authentic because a fake site can also fake the seal. A new window should open and make sure the organization listed is the business you're expecting and the site listed matches the URL of the site you are transacting with. 2) Look at the browser address bar before entering any personally identiable information. The URL should start with 'https' with the 's' meaning 'secure' versus 'http...

In the spirit of giving, the VeriSign Web team donated time yesterday at the Family Giving Tree. Web team elves sorted gifts in the hope of making every child feel special and like a valuable part of their community. Great work everyone! And thanks to Debbie for suggesting and organizing this.

We recently added some visual uplift to a few of our SSL pages to augment the textual copy. Given that different users consume content differently through a combination of text and/or graphics, we wanted to ensure we were designing for this. For instance, for those of you wondering How Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Works, we have put together a visual of the three ways SSL protects your Website and customers, along with diagrams of how encryption and authentication works.

The information page on E-Commerce, Trust, and SSL now has some additional graphics and a bold, can't-miss graphic of key stats.

We just launched the redesign of the watch.tv homepage last Monday. One of the elements that we had a lot of fun putting together was the digital media frenzy animation at the top of the page. There is a good amount of Web 2.0 features such as video, links to our social media spaces, integration of twitter and blog feeds, and an interactive carousel slideshow. The rest of the site will be catching up shortly. Check out the video below:

We have rolled out a new header and footer on the VeriSign.com site.

country-site-selector.jpgWe simplified and streamlined the options. For example, we combined the country site identifier and the worldwide site selector into one utility. Using an in-page popup, users can now navigate to another country site from the page they are on without going to a new page to select the country site they wish to visit.
