FILE STORAGE MILLIONAIRE Kim Dotcom has found another domain name for his Mega website after it lost its ".ga" domain name suffix last week.
Mega, which was to be Me.ga, is now Mega.co.nz. This has an unfortunate connotation, that it is a mega con, but at least that is better than being banned by the African country of Gabon before it had a chance to start operating.
Dotcom has big plans for his new dot.nz site, and reckons that it will turn file storage on its head, make it more secure and much more user friendly.
Unfortunately for him Gabon decided early that it would be used for nefarious purposes, and pulled the virtual rug out from under it.
Dotcom, who has remained defiant since the raid on his home and business in January, has lined up a replacement already, and that is in the country that he now calls home.
"New Zealand will be the home of our new website: http://Mega.co.nz - Powered by legality and protected by the law," he said.
Last week he was accusing Gabon of censuring him and his website for cybercrimes that it had not yet committed, and working in cahoots with the US authorities.
"Gabon Minister used time machine to analyze legality of the future Mega," he said." Verdict: Cyber crime! Gets 5$ award from the FBI." µ
