On its homepage, the logo is presented in white on a background that changes every time the page is refreshed. This logo won 1st place in the 2009 Brand New Awards.

On June 23, 2015, AOL sold its business to US telco Verizon for $4.4 billion. In Summer 2017, AOL and Yahoo!'s Verizon-owned assets were merged into Oath (currently Verizon Media).
