Top TV Torrent Website Has Ditched Italian .IT Domain for Swiss .CH Domain But Still Facing Problems
The top TV shows torrents provider, EZTV has switched domains after facing heat from the Italian authorities over copy right infringements.
Founded in 2005, the TV-torrent site EZTV has served torrents for nearly a decade. It has jumped to become one of the most popular torrents website in its niche on the Internet today.
EZTV was earlier blocked by the British courts and has been under pressure from copyright violations since the untimely demise of the Pirate Bay domain on Dec 9th, 2014. However it had managed to remain online despite tremendous pressure from the authorities. However it recently ran into trouble with the Italian domain registrars, NIC.IT over some paperwork and was facing possible seizure of the EZTV.IT domain name. The EZTV admin used this opportunity to move over to a fresh Swiss domain called EZTV.CH.
“NIC.it hasn’t been very cooperative in trying to find a solution. While they haven’t admitted it on the record, it wouldn’t surprise me if they were pressured by copyright holders,” EZTV’s NovaKing told TorrentFreak.
However the switch doesnt seem to been clean enough as the new EZTV.CH domain is giving ‘No Response’ error since today morning.
