Demonoid back online but site still down

This Monday, a well-known invite only  BitTorrent tracker Demonoid, is back online. Three months ago, the large tracker was kicked out of its Ukrainian host, likely due to pressure from American authorities. It may also have been driven offline due to a denial of service attack.

It may not be a surprise that Demonoid is no longer with its former hosting company in the Ukraine. It seems that they’ve are going with a hosting company located in Hong Kong instead, judging from the IP-address linked to the tracker.

It’s obscure whether this has been settled at this point. The admin said at the time that if the site did indeed return, it may move over to the latest code they had been testing for a while.
