Kim Dotcom's 'Mega' is now online After a minor setback last week, Kim Dotcom's new MegaUpload successor finally has a home.
The site, which was to originally have the URL "," got shut down by the Gabon government due to intellectual property concerns. The country controls the .ga domain.

For now, the site is now live at, meaning it is New Zealand based. Dotcom noted that the service will "powered by legality and protected by the law."

The service itself is not available yet, but it appears January 19th is the official launch date.

Dotcom is looking for investors, API partners and hosting partners.

Check how the new service works, here:

powered by legality and protected by the law.....

So does that mean it will not have any pirated material on the site? If so, I give it a day before it goes belly up!

the average user will not use it.
they will be too spooked to join, for fears of ip tracing and legal reprisals for taking part in a website that hosts 'grey-area' legal files.
