We just wanted to alert our readers to not be confused if they visit their box.net accounts only to find themselves on box.com. No, the url wasn’t hijacked. No, you’re not on the wrong website. Box.net is simply redirecting their domain to box.com.
From the Box.net blog:
When Box founders Aaron Levie and Dylan Smith started the company in 2005, Box.net was a consumer solution with a long way to go. Fast forward six plus years, and we’re a much different company today. As we developed and changed focus to the business and enterprise market, it became clear that the company needed a trusted, enterprise-worthy domain that aligns with the product that we’ve built. That’s why today we’re excited to announce that Box is moving from Box.net to Box.com!
Starting very soon, you’ll be automatically taken to the new domain (www.box.com) when signing into your Box account. Only the URL is changing – you’ll still have access all your important files and folders with no interruption to your workflow.
We’re happy to leave the .net behind and move on to the bigger and better Box, and are glad you’re a part of our success. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns about the move.
