I finally decided today to dig deeper into the disappearance of the socketmail.com website.
I tried emailing several different email addresses on the @socketmail.com domain and received no response. I then went searching for who the current CEO of socketmail was and my search turned up a guy by the name of Shivam Parikh, who apparently is also the owner of RDOSTI.COM
So after doing a whois lookup on RDOSTI.COM I found Shivam’s email address and sent him an email asking about socketmail.com, and this is what he replyed with
Socketmail closed down since the owners did not want to renew with our company.
So there you have it. Not sure exactly what that means, but it sounds like socketmail is gone for good 🙁
