After the government of Gabon shut down his Me.ga domain, Kim Dotcom wanted a new country to let him host the DNS that will be home base to the successes of file-sharing site Megaupload. That country will be New Zealand, as Dotcom is now the owner of Mega.co.nz.
Kim’s site can now be found at Mega.co.nz instead of Me.ga. Dotcom announced on twitter,
New Zealand will be the home of our new website: http://t.co/VX5VGnmq – Powered by legality and protected by the law.

When Gabon shut down Me.ga, Dotcom blamed “the reach of the US and Vivendi,” as the Me.ga URL was offered by Gabon Telecom, a subsidiary of the Vivendi entertainment company.
