Kim Dotcom’s Mega Is Now Open To the Public

Mega

Mega, Kim Dotcom‘s big, flashy new copyright-dismantling file-sharing/storage site with encryption up the wazoo has finally launched. You can head on over and sign up right now. That is, so long as the site can hold under the crazy traffic. So far, it looks like it’s getting crushed. But different people are experiencing different things.

Gizmodo gave you an inside look at the service yesterday, but now you can get in there and start poking around yourself. Is this the new future of cloud storage? Or maybe the new future of private, encrypted piracy clubs? We’re now officially on our way to finding out. What’s your money on?

And it looks like it’s only the beginning..

Later, Dotcom reported that sign-ups were coming at a rate of thousands per minute.

The site opened up for early access yesterday, and now everyone can go to Mega to sign up and use the service, with a basic, free offering of 50GB of storage, plus three pricing tiers with additional storage and bandwidth capacity. This is being resold by partners of Mega, which include Instra, as well as EuroDNS and Digiweb.

Update 19/01/13 @ 7:41 GMT: Within eight minutes it’s gone from 100,000 user registrations to 250,000 user registrations, Kim Tweeted

“250,000 user registrations. Server capacity on maximum load. Should get better when initial frenzy is over. Wow!!!”

Mr Kim Dotcom tweeted on Twitter, @KimDotcom
