Is this the end for RapidGator?

Is this the end for RapidGator?, one of the largest cyberlockers out there, has been shut down.
After January's demise of MegaUpload, RapidGator was the fastest growing of the cyberlockers that vied for the market share left behind.

In four months, the site gained over 5 million users. In Alexa ratings (of traffic), the site exploded from the 100,000th most popular site on the Web to 287th as of last week.

As of today, however, users cannot reach the site, thanks to a dispute with their Web host: "Our hoster have suspended our account. We are working on possible solution."

It is unclear what the issues are, and whether the cyberlocker is looking for a new host. Back in February, the site was blocked by PayPal and they said they were shutting down but instead decided to stay open.
