There is no official Demonoid site at the moment. The site is down and all so called Demonoid alternatives and mirrors are fakes.
Demonoid.pw proxies down (Update 2)
Together with the official domain demonoid.pw, the official proxy dnoid.me is no longer online. Other proxy sites either reflect an older version of the torrent site or are fake pages.
Demonoid down (Update)
Demonoid’s website demonoid.pw is offline. The site displays an Error 502 served by CDN operator Cloudflare. According to Torrentfreak, Demonoid has had technical problems for several weeks. Users said they could visit Demonoid’s homepage but could not open a torrent page.
The torrent tracker, which has gone through many offline periods in its history, has not been accessible for several days.
New community and staff rebuild demonoid.info
Demonoid is a semi-private torrent tracker and one of the oldest torrent communities. Demonoid has run into quite a few issues over the years and turned off the lights for weeks or even months. In 2014 the torrent site returned under the new domain demonoid.pw. Since May 2015 the site requires adblockers to be disabled to access the site. In February 2017 Demonoid went offline when the team behind the site ran into hosting issues and internal problems. It came back online in March 2017. When ExtraTorrent shut down in May 2017 many torrenting users moved forward to alternatives like Demonoid as a new torrent resource.
Demonoid warns users not to visit demonoid.tv and demonoid.to. These are copycat sites that could steal login information and spread malware. The trackers official domains where demonoid.pw and demonoid.click. However, these domains where not extended by the admin and are no longer official domains.
In the spring of 2017, Demonoid went down due to hosting issues and stayed offline.
Since March 2017 the site is online and runs most of the time.
In September 2018, Demonoid became unusable for many users due to technical issues. So far, there was no sign of a return of Demonoid in early 2019.
Community Rebuild Site – Demonoid 2
In May 2019 former staff of Demonoid announced the rebuilding of the defunct tracker. Demonoid Fora was set up as Demonoid’s gathering place run by Demonoid staff. The statement says that the new site is in a public beta testing phase.
