Dmoz officially shut down today, stealing the thunder of St. Patrick’s Day.
The resource index was owned by AOL, but constructed and maintained by a community of volunteer editors.
Dmoz.org and the community that maintained it, were also known as the Open Directory Project (ODP).
Its long history started in 1998, and by 1999 Dmoz had 1 million URLs in its index.
A static copy of Dmoz has been mirrored at DmozTools.net.
DomainGang is proud to have been included in the original Dmoz directory and its mirror, under Domain Name Resources.
Rest in peace, Dmoz. 🙁
