Miranda Domains Update (Some Good News, Some Bad News)

April 09, 2008 by Miranda IM Team

Silently in the night, we turned on several sub domains this past week. Bugs and the Wiki have returned to us although in a shell of their former self. Unfortunately, due to lost data, we had to restart these sites from scratch. We do apologize for this happening again and have taken steps to ensure that it doesn’t ever happen in the future. We have moved these sites along with the main website to Dreamhost for which they have long provided us with great service. I would highly recommend them for any of your hosting needs.

Along this front, we will have an announcement real soon about the return of Addons.


  1. yeah, “return od the jedi” …ehm “addons”!

  2. The addons aren’t back, or do I miss something?

  3. Miranda = best IM client ever… So better more patient than -iHopeNever- no access for addons.

    Go Miranda go!

  4. For those looking for skins for Miranda or IEView or tabSRMM, just go to DeviantArt. When I realized addons were down, that’s were I headed to. Wait…I practically live over there LMAO.

  6. Yeah–Miranda’s it! Just saved me from MSN virus because it doesn’t execute stuff. I’m using it at work because it doesn’t buzz or shake or anything. Pure, clean business. When are you adding Sametime support?

  7. Loving miranda. Use it on a regular bases. 0.8 is now my default messenging client.

  8. Excellent news! Now I’m off to donate :)

    And so should everyone else, quite simply since Miranda is a superior IM client!

    miranda without addons it’s like a fish without water.

  17. Let’s just hope that addon-page will be running in a couple of weeks. ^_^

  18. Is this a joke? How long do we have to wait for the domains? What’s taking so long?

  19. Someone PLEASE get the Add-ons section up! Why did I have to reinstall Miranda yesterday?! Only if I had know. :)

    By Ally on April 15th, 2008 at 9:06 am #
  20. What’s up with the add-ons? Prompting people to download the latest version while the add-ons site is down is not a good thing ;-)

    By Haralampi on April 16th, 2008 at 8:38 am #
  21. i can’t live without addons.

    By yoness on April 16th, 2008 at 12:08 pm #

  24. Without the addon pade miranda is not really usable and the site is down for a really long time :(
    Had to reinstall my system and forget to backup my miranda addons and now I moved to another messenger because I can’t get my addons back. This sucks and won’t help miranda!

  35. Note that there are snapshots of miranda web at web.archive.org. Looks like the wiki is archived in the latest (Aug 2007)


    If there is no other way, maybe can recover some content from here.

  37. Really, really nice to see things are up and running again… was a hard time without all the miranda-stuff.

    Hope you are wiser now and keep track of your backups ;)

    @ms sun try searching the web for tuts. there are enough.

    Small, fast, plain but customizeable – thats what I want an IM to be. Here it is – miranda :)
    gotta love it :D
