The domain name ilemi.com was registered September 29th, 2009 and is currently set to expire September 29th, 2013. The domain has Whois protect information so we do not know who owned and operated the domain. Ilemi.com was seized earlier this year by the US Government’s ICE division as a result of being a link directory for watching live sports online.
Ilemi.com was a list (most notably) for live sports like football, soccer, baseball, basketball, hockey, and more. Ilemi.com also provided links to watch sitcoms and cartoons online. The site did not stream any of the live events or shows themselves, but rather served as a link directory helping people find out where they could watch the football games and other sports. The domain name ilemi.com is currently under control of US’s ICE division and it is unknown what they will do with the domain, if they will let it expire and drop in the future or what their plans are for it.
Even though ilemi.com started a few years after most major sports linking sites, ilemi gained popularity quickly and was one of the top 10 most visited sports linking directories. The site was online for less than 2 years before it was confiscated. Ilemi.com listed links to sports events, usually more than 1 link per event to the popular games and matches that were playing online. This site gained a lot of popularity very quickly which was due to them being one of the best sports linking sites available.
Ilemi.com has replaced their site and their new site can be found on ilemi.eu (www.ilemi.eu). This site is identical to ilemi.com except the .eu domain register is maintained outside of the United States and this should help prevent the domain from being confiscated in the future. Ilemi.eu still provides a full list of sports links and sitcom/television links and appears to be exactly as ilemi.com was without any subtractions.
