After it was taken down at the start of the week by Microsoft, who sinkholed most of its traffic after it classified it to be hosting “bad” traffic, No IP has now regained control of all 23 domains that were seized by Microsoft on June 30th,.
In an update, it said that the domains are “now back in our control”, and is apologised for the inconvenience that the takedown caused its customers. “Thank you so much for the support and for sticking with us through the entire process this week. More information surrounding this event will be released within the next few days, so stay tuned”, it said.
The news divided opinion on Microsoft’s efforts to sinkhole bad traffic, and it acting as a vigilante police force on the internet. The action severely disrupted No IP, which was also hit by a DDoS attack later in the week.
