Demonoid has gone down again and again for threats directed to the website. Today however, the threat has been to the hosting company through which Demonoid is renting servers from. The staff at Demonoid has made the home page into the following message:
“The CRIA threatened the company renting the servers to us, and because of this it is not possible to keep the site online. Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your understanding.”
I have no idea how long they will be down, but something tells me they will be back in some form. No one can hold down the power of the Underground P2P network!
I just tried running my torrents, and to my surprise, the Demonoid trackers are DOWN. This does not look good for Demonoid.
We at The Underground firmly believe in anything related to the underground. When we heard word that the Demonator proxy existed, we’d be damned if we didn’t talk about it at all. 🙂
The demonator proxy was made to help Canadian users access Demonoid. Right now there appears to be bugs, according to commenter “Justin”. Hey, we understand, its still version 1.0. Good luck with the demonator, and hopefully it will become something that all of us undergrounders can stash in our underground tool belt.
I am a proud user of Demonoid since late 90’s. Invites are hard to get, but I have invites to share if users desire them. Just let me know! Long live Demonoid!
