- KickassTorrents is down
In recent years, KickassTorrents has become one of the biggest and most popular BitTorrent sites out there, especially as some of the old popular ones were shut down or disappeared. And so far, it managed to stay out of legal trouble.
So when the site went down earlier today, it's easy to understand why people thought the worse, as is usually the case with BitTorrent sites.
But the problems are technical ones it seems, the site is actually working, but the kat.ph
domain it's been using more recently expired a couple of weeks ago and has now stopped working altogether.
The site is still working via the old domain KickassTorrents.com
, ironically the one it switched from for fear of getting taken over by the US authorities. The site told
TorrentFreak that things are being worked out and the problems will be fixed eventually.UPDATE:
The site is back up, both domains are working and everything seems to be in order. More details here
.UPDATE 21 March 2013:
The site, along with H33T and Fenopy, is now blocked in the UK
, so if you're experiencing problems and you're in the UK, this is what's going on. There are ways of bypassing the block though

|Comment #29 by: hogibear on 22 Mar 2013, 20:47 UTC|| reply to this comment|
ridiculous strategy to try and combat copyright protection, i agree it is probably affecting the industry but simply blocking access is futile as dozens of proxy's appear the minute it is blocked !stop with the ridiculous prices and maybe we will pay for content, until then ill spend my money on live gigs and download everything else from bittorrent sites.

virgin media, an internet service provider in the UK has blocked all of their customers from using the KAT site too. apparently the courts have been involved and ordered this action to be taken. you may find that your service providers may also do the exact same.

Controlling or stopping sites like this would be like control the oxygen in the air or stopping breathing whilst trying to remain alive ......
all you corporate giants your day will come.....
Mean while we live on....
