Torrentz.eu Shuts Down

Torrentz.eu Shuts Down

One largest torrent websites ever has shut down and announced "farewell" to its users. Torrentz.eu was a huge meta-search engine, which didn’t host any torrents but provided links to other services including TPB.


Torrentz.eu was founded 13 years ago and has been a stable factor in the torrent community since then. It accounted for millions of visitors per day and was one of the most visited torrent sites. A few days ago, it announced its shutdown, disabling its search functionality without any warning.

While the main page may look normal, the search function doesn’t wok any longer. Instead, Torrentz.eu now refers to itself in the past tense. Whatever link you click, the message is the same: “Torrentz will always love you. Farewell.”

So, right after KickassTorrents, just another major torrent service is shutting down. Like many other sites, Torrentz itself never hosted any torrent files. Moreover, the engine had a takedown procedure in place, which allowed rights owners to take down infringing links. However, this was not enough to make copyright owners happy: RIAA and MPAA have reported Torrentz.eu to the American government in recent years. In its turn, the government repeatedly placed Torrentz in its annual “Out-of-Cycle Review of Notorious Markets.”

So, the trend is a kind of worrying – with Torrentz.eu and KickassTorrents both shutting down, the file-sharing community lost two of the largest service in just 3 weeks. Now millions of their users will have to find new services to get free content (or turn to legal alternatives).

Torrentz.eu was founded before The Pirate Bay and was considered one of the oldest torrent websites in the world. When it first launched, it was hosting torrent files. However, quite soon it swiftly turned into a meta-search engine.

Thanks to TorrentFreak for providing the source of the article.

Titori avatarWhat i said in another article, those idiots that is chasing illegal sites with torrents. Making sure, loads of music and games or whatever disappears as torrent, that is not for sale anymore. Even collection items, that is very rare to find, are only to find on torrent sites.

Might time, for a new type of files, what you can download. A whole new system...perhaps... More secure, build in VPN and such things. It is just an idea.

MadVillain avatarReally sad ive been using Torrentz [torrents with a "Z" as ive always called it lol] for years. Was really great and convenient cus you didnt have to indvidually search every torrent site for what you were lookin, for and its search engine was fantastic. Man BTjunkie gone, kat gone, now Torrentzeu is gone? jeez whats next? Get on sum private trackers while ya still can folks never no whats gonna happen these days

No avatar@madvillan how does one go about doing that? and does anyone know of a torrentz alternative, because i never used anything but torrentz in my entire life.

BaBaDapper avatarYou just know ET is really in their cross-hairs now. Unfortunately I don't know much about the torrent community so when ET goes it will be like the poster above and KAT thinking I have found a back door to ET when really it could just be some honeypot scam.

Sure ET have contingency plans of some sort but I guess one will be to shut up shop and that will be that.

No avatarI wish they had used this much resources hunting down criminals, terrorists. They can never win, even if they take down every torrent website. How the heck are they going to stop my cloud storage drive with the world?

No avatarSo, what's changed? I personally know they resort to home invasion now. Maybe they resort to threatening people/site owners lives or whatever also.

JediMaster5 avatarextratorrent.cc and rarbg.to are 2 of my fav torrent sites.

cenz avatarWell if ET and the others go down, let's hope I2P torrents (i2pSnark) will always remain with tracker sites Diftracker and Postman. Completely anonymous without worrying about proxy/VPN. Just a lot slower.

wchouser3 avatarI can't say I used Torrentz all that often, but I was always satisfied when I did. It was the best resource for finding those "hard to find" torrents. Of course, I'm a little disturbed by this trend, just as everyone else is. Folks, use your VPNs. On top of that, make sure you have an air-tight firewall to ensure your connection will cut out, should you get booted off the VPN. The good ones aren't free, but they're cheap and the security they offer is priceless. I can tell you that ET is by far the best torrent site out there, which surely makes it a target. KAT didn't even come close to the level of function on ET. I, like many others hope those working the levers at ET are well equipped to handle what ever may happen.

willbear76 avatarYeah It Wont Be Long ALL the Torrents sites will be shut down even this one
Something about a new law that gives them the right to shut down any torrent site they choose
not 100% what the law is called but i was reading about it on facebook

No avatarThe media are fools for continuing to play whack a mole with torrent sites. They will not go away. If the had any brains they should figure out a way to monetize the torrent sites. Like enter into an agreement to share the revenues in exchange for allowing free reign
