KickAssTorrents Still Down, Torrentz Bid Goodbye, What Are The Available Alternatives For Torrenting?
Netizens are still expressing their frustration after one of their favorite torrent websites went down following the arrest of its co-founder. KickassTorrents (KAT) is still down, while Torrentz also bid goodbye, leaving their fans with no other options but to look for alternatives.Advertisement
KickAssTorrents moved on top of the list of best torrent websites because of their wide collection of files. Almost anything that you need like movies, television series, computer software, e-books and more are available on the top torrent site until it was seized.
While there are KAT mirrors at this point, it is still a known fact that these unofficial mirrors could do more harm than good. Without the authentic KAT torrent site, The PirateBay is now the best option yet again. According Torrent Freak, TPB took a blow last year due to a staff revolt but is now back on its feet.
The Pirate Bay is now considered the top KAT alternative based on the number of files available, not to mention its huge amount of visitors daily. TPB was also seized numerous times before, but the group behind the website has made good moves to dodge the authorities.
At this point, The Pirate Bay is also considered the most stable alternative as it is hosted on a “hydra of domain names” that makes it almost impossible to shut down. For internet users who are looking to get a hand on its favorite applications, movies or series, visiting TPB is your best option at this point.
ExtraTorrent is also a reliable torrent site and has been getting a lot of attention as well as of late. The website has been earning positive reviews with its design and interface that make searching for content easier compared to other small websites. ExtraTorrent is also the home for ETTV and ETRG releases.
There are KAT and Torrentz mirrors available online, including torrentz.eu site, Tech Times noted. However, using those websites are still risky, especially those torrent sites asking for personal details like credit card info. It remains to be seen whether KAT and Torrentz will officially return to circulation in the coming months.
