The URL is expected to serve as an interm site for SCO through Feb. 12, when the DDoS is expected to conclude. "SCO has developed layers of contingency plans to communicate with our valued customers, resellers, developers, partners and shareholders," asid Jeff Carlon, the company's director of worldwide IT infrastructure, who called the new domain "the first step" in its planning.
