The new me.ga domain for MegaUpload gets suspended
Anthony Garreffa / 4 years ago
Me.ga was meant to be a bright new start for MegaUpload, but the Gabonese (the .ga in me.ga) have put their foot down with the republic’s Minister of Communications, Blaise Lourmbe, saying that his country will not “service as a platform or screen for committing acts aimed at violating copyrights, not be used by unscrupulous people”.
This means that MegaUpload has now lost their chance to use the awesome domain me.ga, but the search isn’t over. MegaUpload founder and Call of Duty extraordinaire, Kim Dotcom, reached out to Twitter to say “The reach of the US and Vivendi: Gabon Minister announced Me.ga domain will be suspended. Calls cloud storage site cyber crime.”
Dotcom stated on Twitter that he was actually prepared for this, with alternative domains ready to go. The problem is, that me.ga would’ve been absolutely perfect.
