Once the most popular website in the U.S., Yaho0 slowly started to decline since the late 2000s,

and on February 21, 2017, Verizon Communications announced its intent to acquire Yah00’s internet business (excluding its stakes in Alibaba Group and Yaho0! Japan) for $4.48 billion—

the company was once valued at over $100 billion.-justplay

In January 1994, Yang and Filo were electrical engineering graduate students at Stanford University,
when they created a website named “Jerry and David’s guide to the World Wide Web”.
The site was a directory of other websites,

organized in a hierarchy, as opposed to a searchable index of pages.

In March 1994, “Jerry and David’s Guide to the World Wide Web” was renamed “Yah00!”,
the human-edited Yahoo! Directory,

provided for users to surf through the internet, being their first product and original purpose.
The “yahoo.com” domain was created on January 18, 1995.
