AllofMP3.com is officially gone, but the site that AllofMP3 parent MediaServices created to replace it is also down.
For the last two days we have been unable to access mp3Sparks.com, essentially a twin of AllofMP3 that supposedly falls under different and now legal licensing.
Is it because mp3Sparks.com is experiencing technical difficulties or is it because it too has been taken down? A look at Alexa shows that interest in MP3Sparks.com is very high, so high that the site's traffic has exceeded AllofMP3.com's normally high traffic. So high that yesterday MP3Sparks.com just missed the Internet top 1000 in traffic, ranking at 1,007 globally. It is quite possible that MP3Sparks' servers were simply overwhelmed.
At this point there are no answers to why the site is down, but we will try to contact MediaServices and find out why.
