Some of Kim Dotcom’s Mega Domains Expired and are up for sale
#1
TUESDAY,16 JUNE 2015 The Domains
According to the news from Domain Forum of China on June 16th, some of the domains belonging to Kim Dotcom have expired and are now listed for sale. Kim Dotcom told TorrentFreak the domains were not supposed to expire. “This should not have happened,” he says, adding that someone else in his team handled the registrations. Huge Domains picked up one of the domains.

From the article:



After the seized Megaupload and Megavideo domains ran malicious ads last month, there is more Mega domain strangeness to report. Various domain names which previously belonged to Kim Dotcom and his companies have expired and are now listed for sale, or were sold already.



When Kim Dotcom’s mansion was raided early 2012, the U.S. Government targeted various domain names that were linked to the “Mega conspiracy.”

While Megaupload and Megavideo were the most prominent targets, the indictment also listed megapix.com, megacar.com, megabackup.com and various other “Mega” domains.

HugeDomains, the company currently selling Megagogo.com, informed us that they scooped up the domain after it had expired.

“When the domain was not renewed by the owner after expiration, HugeDomains acquired the domain when it became publicly available on January 22, 2015,” the company informed us.
