https://twitter.com/Demonoid P2P Since March 2017, Demonoid is using a Reddit platform as official forum where users can talk and report problems which they encounter on a site.
https:// P2P/ On December 2, 2010, Demonoid changed its domain from to a address, to avoid US government seizure.
It tracks and displays users' upload/download ratios, but, except in its early years, took no action against users with low ratios (members who take more than they share).
Demonoid prohibits linking to torrents containing pornographic material and malicious software.
He also stated that he has "handed the reins over to a new administrator" – "a close friend of [his]", whom they trust completely and has the knowledge and time to take care of the site.
Over the course of the next few days, RSS feeds for the site came back online and by April 16, 2008 a mass email was sent out to all Demonoid users informing that the site was "finally back online." The official explanation stated: A few months ago, the site administrator (known as Deimos), lacked the time necessary to maintain this website.
In January 2014, a tracker came online at the domain, and provided service for the old torrents.
" came online at the domain, and the and domains began redirecting web traffic to it, indicating they are all under control of the same owner.
The threats are in spite of the open question of the legality of music file sharing in Canada.
On November 9, 2007, the site again went offline, reportedly due to legal threats to their service provider from the Canadian Recording Industry Association.
Six days later, the placeholder page was updated with a link to a new forum, unrelated to file sharing, for the community.
On November 29, 2007, Deimos posted on that forum a problem preventing the site from coming back up: "Money is an issue, but the real problem at the moment is finding a suitable place to host the website. And there's some personal stuff I need to take care of that takes most of my time at the moment, and that does not help." The site then came back online on April 11, 2008.
