Megavideo Down (As of 26th June, 2009)

Update 6/29/09: is back online. All inbound links seem to be working now.

As of yesterday, video-sharing site Megavideo (subsidiary of Megaupload, a company based out of Hong Kong) came under scrutiny by the WHOIS domain registrars for providing inaccurate information. The site has been taken offline until further notice.

According to,

For all you techie folks in the know, their WHOIS information is would suggest that they have provided the wrong details regarding their site and the domain has subsequently been blocked.

I think this issue should be resolved soon though as they had a massive following which was growing all the time - surely they would'nt just "take the money and run" like a lot of people are suggesting? Either way will be switching to a different video host and all will resume as normal soon.
