There is no bad publicity.. Please let them publish their "other" mistakes as well, such as being slow sometimes, not making obvious improvements on their marketplace,..

I just published an article on Rob Monster and the Epik hack. Please share.

Thanks for posting this very long article. Question is: why do you spend so much time and energy on this. If Epik loses, you don't win.

And looks like in general people seem to be thinking jewness and naziness to be exact opposites of eachother.
In reality,.. there are satanic people known as jews (khazars), and there are normal jews, and satanic "jews" killed
normal jews and others, and claimed to be the victim. For example Hitler is one-quarter Rotschild. Merkel is at least 1/8, Obama at least 1/16. And Obama is being considered as hero because he is black, while he is grandson of Hitler.
I don't think all khazars are bad. But historically they had an evil culture, looks like, or people claim so at least.
And not all satanists are khazars either, or at least not all known as jews.
Whatever I say, something will be missing, or can be misunderstood, and I'm not an expert,..
I just mean, things are not nearly as simple as they seem.

Many 1/6 protestors being ID'ed and coerced and prosecuted and convicted because of the Epik hack data. There are a lot of interesting and complicated people pretty mad at Rob Monster now that everyone knows what he really is and I really don't think his billionaire buddies and fed friends are going to be able help him and his. To read the full story on Rob Monster's treachery read this: https://providencepost.com/a-monster-of-epik-proportions/ and keep reading the govt docs being released and pay attention to the evidence being used to prosecute for conspiracy. Rob should probably start whistling blow right about now and pretend he was just being used as a dup.

Old news.
Is it tho? Haven't heard anything from Monster for a long time. he never really came out and said they resolved their issues, which required a total rebuild. I would not be surprised at all if epik was still wide open for the hackers.

I am getting an abnormal amount of spam lately and am guessing its due to the Epik breach and leak of personal info.
Anyone else getting more spam than usual who had their information leaked?

Think you are trying to stir the pot .

In all fairness,
usually that's how long it takes for leaked info to spread and spam reaching us

The article doesn't seem very credible. It says Epik hosts 700k domains but only has $1m/year revenue? I'd think the average cost is $10 so that'd be $7m at least not counting all of the other services available and commissions from auction sales.

Registrars only get to keep the difference between what they collect and what they pay the registry.

Even if they collect $10 for a .com registration, around $8 of that goes to Verisign, as that is the wholesale price.

Registrars often have extremely low margins on registrations and renewals, sometimes even at a loss to attract customers.

kiwifarms.net - on a spot view and as per the screenshot - is regged with epik, is using epik dns, has a website located in UA. Did not visit it though. Anything special? what I'm missing?

I don't really know much about this site, but I did see the post by Cloudflare regarding it, which was later reported on domain blogs and even major news outlets.

Just to clarify, targeted violent threats do not fall under "free speech". The website has also reportedly been tied to doxxing, stalking, swatting and all kinds of other incidents.

Internet infrastructure provider Cloudflare has “blocked” a site it provides domain services to after identifying “an imminent and emergency threat to human life”.

https://domainincite.com/28211-cloudflare-blocks-anti-trans-site-for-emergency-threat-to-human-life

https://blog.cloudflare.com/kiwifarms-blocked/

This is an extraordinary decision for us to make and, given Cloudflare’s role as an Internet infrastructure provider, a dangerous one that we are not comfortable with. However, the rhetoric on the Kiwifarms site and specific, targeted threats have escalated over the last 48 hours to the point that we believe there is an unprecedented emergency and immediate threat to human life unlike we have previously seen from Kiwifarms or any other customer before.

So their profit should be lower but the author might not know the difference between revenue and profit. If Epik takes in $10 for a renewal and sends away $8 then that's $10 in revenue, $8 in Costs of Goods Sold and leaves $2 as either profit or waiting for more expenditures.

Possibly, but in fairness revenue itself is pretty worthless.

If I buy a domain for $5m and sell it for $1m, that $1m in revenue is not very impressive.

I doubt they have access to financial records so any number is just an estimate anyway.

My point is just that domain registrations are often loss leaders or close, just to get customers.

The Kiwi Farms issue is a separate one than the Epik Breach that occurred, so it shouldn't it be separated out into another thread?

Not my call but "Epik Had A Major Breach" because among its customers were far-right and neo-Nazi hate sites so when Epik decides to side with the internet's most famous hate forum where transphobic Nazis persecute random people I think we're on topic here.

I consider it relevant as much of the discussion in this thread was related to Epik's embrace and/or courtship of these type of websites, often under the defense of "free speech".

They have a new CEO, and this just happened.
