The Icefilms, a well-known streaming video service with a strong following, has been offline for a while now. Following The Pirate Bay shutdown, many fear that Icefilms has fallen to the same fate, but the signs are that the portal will be back on its feet soon.
Of course, the recent outage of The Pirate Bay following a raid by Swedish police has shaken the file-sharing community. This is why Internet users panic when other similar online services also have downtime. Now, the concern is growing over Icefilms, a video streaming portal known for a strong online following.
One day, Icefilms just disappeared from the web. Visitors to the website faced various problems – from no page loading to redirections to another domain and to the image with the smoke around the website’s logo. Although such a picture was much preferable to a law enforcement notice, it was still causing concern among Icefilms users, because it was hosted on Amazon, not on Icefilms’ own server.
Some reports assured the public that Icefilms simply has hosting problem, and therefore had to place the image on another server. The sources promised that the website should be back in a few days. The Pirate Bay raid is not the only reason for the Icefilms users to panic. Besides that, the first couple pages of Google don’t mention any information about the prominent service. Actually, Icefilms is completely absent from its search results. But if you turn to Bing, you will see the search results proving the site’s former glory. Moreover, Bing provides a convenient Icefilms search engine at the first line.
It should also be noted that Icefilms was included in a recent UK blocking order, where British ISPs were ordered to block 32 domains on the request from the Motion Picture Association.
