PostDemonoid MAY Come Back

A few days ago Demonoid showed the first signs of life in weeks when the domain’s nameservers were updated. Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean that the site is preparing to make a comeback. The site’s tech admin informs TorrentFreak that the Demonoid crew is “not looking into putting the site back up at the moment.” However, the troubled BitTorrent site is not giving up entirely just yet.

After the popular BitTorrent tracker Demonoid suffered a DDoS and hacker attack last month, the site’s servers in Ukraine were pulled offline.

Local authorities explained that Interpol asked them to take action as part of an investigation into the site’s alleged owners in Mexico.

In the weeks that followed the Demonoid team remained silent. All this time the site itself showed absolutely no sign of life. However, a few days ago something changed.

All of a sudden Demonoid.me’s nameservers switched from demonoid.com to demonoid.me. Could it be that the site was preparing to make a comeback?

We decided to ask the tech admin of the site, who hadn’t responded to our inquiries for a few weeks. This time he was quick to reply, explaining that the DNS change was made to fix issues with the mail server.

“The DNS change was so the mail started working again,” Demonoid’s tech admin told TorrentFreak.

When we asked the admin to shed a light on the future of the popular BitTorrent site we were told that there is “nothing interesting to report yet.”

“I hope there will be one day, but it might not be soon,” the tech admin added.

Demonoid will remain down for the time being and there are no plans to bring it back anytime soon. “We are down, and we’re not looking into putting the site back up at the moment,” the admin said.

In other words, Demonoid might return at some point in the future, but it’s more likely that this will take months, rather than days.

In many ways the current situation is reminiscent of the downtime Demonoid suffered half a decade ago. During the summer of 2007 the site shut down its servers after receiving legal threats from the CRIA. After being offline for six months the site eventually reappeared in full glory early 2008.

Time will tell whether Demonoid can make a comeback once again.

These stories are always so depressing. Now I remember why I don't watch the news.
