In case people aren't aware, not that long ago someone bought up the old Batoto domain after it went under and Mangadex took up their mantle. However, it seems that the company that now owns the domain, and also runs Mangawindow, Mangadogs, and Mangapark turns out to be a scummy bunch, and they have registered four domains using the Mangadex name.

If you see URLs that claim to be Mangadex but have the extensions .club, .info, .top or .xyz, do not use them or link to them. They are not affiliated with Mangadex and are being run as scams.

The full statement by Mangadex can be read Here.

I use bookmarks and history to find my stuff safely! I don't want to end in DinasteScum.sht or Mangoflex.org by accident

Well, obviously Mangoflex.scam is the proper site, so put that in your bookmarks.

The truly important question is did they get mangadex.horse and if not what's the price

Ending in a fake site won't get you scammed (probably) but you'll get bombarded with intrusive ads and low quality images for a website you thought (or someone told you but didn't write it correctly) was good... Just a bad experience in general

I think he means the repercussions for posting links to one in the forum here.
Which is some orangey style fingernail removal.

From some googling, they just look like the typical janky, mostly-functional readers those guys usually put out. Honestly, I think it's kind of fucked up that mangadex is requesting people report them to google as phishing sites without even claiming that they're actually doing that.

RIP MangaDex

They're just switching hosts and doing some maintenance. They said it'd take about 72 hours about three days ago so it shouldn't be too much longer.

It was 1st, + 72 hours is 3rd. Now is 5 AM of 5th already ^^

I just hope they will come back and not die like batoto or mangatraders

Update: Mangadex is back, but they have a few domain name snags so you'll have to use http://www.mangadex.cc until they sort out their org. Specific details here: https://mangadex.cc/thread/200708

As I thought, it was not about some hardware upgrade, but legal issues.
Why sites as mangahere and Nyaa do not even care about this
