2020/01/14 edit: mangadex.org is back, but if you're having trouble loading the site properly (i.e. it's just showing the girls from 5toubun for you), do a hard refresh (ctrl+F5 or equivalent) and/or clear your browser's cache for the domain.

Good news, everyone! As you can see, MangaDex is back.

A few things to note:

1. Our .cc domain is temporary for now. Our .org domain was acquired via our reseller, who has removed us from CF and have stopped supporting us due to legal pressure. .org will be unavailable until the transfer to our new provider completes.

2. Due to the length of time it takes to move the domain, older chapters aren't available just yet. It will probably be the beginning of next week before they're available but we're hoping the move will complete before the weekend is over. You can, however, upload new chapters, comment on old chapters, etc., etc.

3. Following the termination of our reseller's support and handling of our donations, the existing donation method is no longer a viable option. Active supporters will have been sent an email about this. We are currently looking into alternative methods of support. With ads as a last resort.

4. To anyone paying attention to the news, the Boruto chapter in question was an official English rip. Uploading official chapters has always been against our rules, and we'd appreciate your continued assistance in reporting any content that breaks our rules in the future. Thanks to all our users for staying vigilant and reporting all official sources, early releases, troll chapters and all other content that breaks our rules.

5. Note that since we're on a new domain, reader settings are back to default. Apologies for the inconvenience.

6. The login-only access is a temporary measure while the cache rebuilds. We haven't gone user-only. Guests now have access to MD.

Thank you for being patient with us and for your outpouring of support during this time. Believe me, even staff has gotten a little twitchy without manga to read.

As we have moved to a new provider, you may experience issues. If you see any errors, please report it on our Discord.

Without further ado, happy reading!

Edit: 1/13/2020
Good news everyone! We have switched back to our lovely .org domain. Our .cc domain will redirect to .org. If you have any issues, try a hard refresh (ctrl+F5) or clear the cache.

We will be keeping .cc permanently on redirect and as a backup domain.

Please be patient if everything doesn't work smoothly right off the bat. We just need to iron out the kinks.

We can't thank you all enough for your patience and support. It means a lot to us. =)

Happy reading!

Known problems:
- As mentioned, chapters uploaded before the host change don't load yet - we know, please don't report them
- User mention links like @Teasday that were made before the domain switch point to .org (no fixing this one, sorry)
- Similarly, any other links pointing directly to mangadex.org in places such as title/group descriptions etc. will obviously not work unless edited, but since we're going to go back to .org eventually, probably no reason to fix those

So what was the time window between that Boruto chapter being uploaded and the takedown? If the time was short, it may have been deliberately uploaded so as to generate a reason for a takedown. There have been instances of bad actors doing exactly this to generate targets for lawsuits. This has been upheld as criminal activity in US jurisdiction.
