I am working on a manuscript using the gridded soil type data product obtained from worldgrids.org and need to cite the data source. However the domain has expired. Does anyone have any idea what happened, or if the datasets formerly on worldgrids.org are hosted elsewhere?
From the Wayback Machine:
The domain worldgrids.org will be discontinued.
A set of GIS layers of biophysical properties available at:
ftp://isric.org username: gsp password: gspisric
for each territory in the world.
Currently working links:
SoilGrids homepage with links to data, usage information, etc.
Slippy map to browse world-wide data. Datasets can also be downloaded via this interface.
Individual browsable and searchable datasets
Global gridded data
Largely the same data as on the above FTP server.
This repository contains a collection of updatable soil property and class maps of the world at a relatively coarse resolution (1 km, 250 m etc) produced using automated soil mapping based on Machine Learning.

Archived version of the old site (thanks to markusN for pointing that out).
The FTP systems access have been discontinued and please only use the Webdavs
