The me.ga domain could not be reached at the time this news report was written. However, for some hours earlier on Tuesday the domain redirected to a Twitter account operated by a group called Omega.

It's not clear how the group, which owns the domain ome.ga domain, also gained control of the me.ga one.

"To our gabonese friends: have no fear, me.ga is in safe hands, the megaman @KimDotcom has no control over the me.ga domain name. We do," the group wrote on Twitter.

In later messages, the group offered to sell the me.ga domain to Dotcom's enemies "for millions of dollars or bitcoins" or to Universal Music Group, saying that 10 percent of the proceeds will go to the Gabon Youth Forum ( Forum des Jeunes du Gabon).
