Kickass has been moving to different domain names to evade law enforcement and copyright advocacy groups for some time now.
In case you are visiting the kickass with so domain you will be shown as the website has been banned.
Moving back to its old .To domain
Though unlike Piratebay whose entire data center was knocked out after the police raid, Kickass had to only deal with domain seizure, therefore it quickly responded by moving to its old .To domain name. The .To domain belong to Tonga, officially the Kingdom of Tonga, a Polynesian sovereign state.
