RapidGator.net has been one of the fastest growing file-hosting sites since the demise of MegaUpload.
In less that half a year it grew from zero to millions of users a day.
However, today RapidGator users have been unable to reach their favorite site.
While some fear a second Megaupload-like shutdown, the current outage appears to stem from a dispute with the company’s hosting partner.
“Our hoster have suspended our account. We are working on possible solution,” the company reportedly commented on the downtime.
The above suggests that the cyberlocker is trying to find a new webhost, or attempting to resolve the current issues.
This is not the first time RapidGator goes down. In February the site said it would quit their business after Paypal threw them out. However, the troubled cyberlocker eventually chose to continue operating.
Update: Rapidgator posted an update.
