What is i.i.com.com?

by Coryphaeus / September 9, 2008 6:52 PM PDT

Every time page loading stalls, the message "Waiting for i.i.com.com" is shown in the status line at the bottom of the browser. Sometimes, it says "Looking up i.i.com.com".

That's a CNet domain mostly used for advertising, I think. You can block it in your hosts file without any negative effect on the forum, as far as I know. If you can't: undo the change in hosts.

Don't block it entirely...

Cnet also uses it for many of the images used throughout the site, so blocking i.i.com.com entirely will result in rendering issues and, in some cases, a loss of functionality.

Do not block i.i.com.com

Blocking i.i.com.com will render download.com almost unusable and also it will be a tedious task to read the Cnet forum and post to it.

99% of the time when loading stalls, it's always waiting on i.i.com.com.

I have the same issue on the USA Today website. The page never seems to load completely showing waiting for i.i.com.com.
