Torrentz is back online but in the form of a clone
The shutting down of Kickass Torrents and Torrentz.eu had broken a million hearts worldwide when they both were banned within a span of two weeks. However, now torrent users have something to cheer about.
All Torrentz users were left with a message on the home page reading, “Torrentz was a free, fast and powerful meta-search engine combining results from dozens of search engines. If you try to search a torrent on the available search bar, it still displays a goodbye message which says “Torrentz will always love you. Farewell.”
Apparently, Torrentz is back but in a different avatar. A clone site of the world’s largest meta-data search engine has made its way online to continue the legacy of the original website.
The new website carries the url Torrentz2.eu, and looks the same as Torrentz.eu on its homepage. “Torrentz2.eu is a clone of Torrentz, a free, fast and powerful meta-search engine combining results from dozens of search engines,” the clone says on its website. It also says: “We will always love you Torrentz. Goodbye.” However, the only big noticeable difference is the absence of the white space on both sides of the new website. It is assumed that the primary job of torrentz2.eu is to keep the spirit of torrentz.eu alive.
Launched on 15 July 2003, Torrentz.eu which had millions of visitors per day went to become one of the leading torrenting websites for downloaders worldwide. Like other torrent websites, Torrentz.eu did not host its own torrents/links. It was more of a torrent aggregator and a search engine that was used to index torrents from other popular torrent sites such as Kickass Torrents, The Pirate Bay, ExtraTorrent etc. You could enter your query and search for relevant content from numerous other websites. However, after being in service for more than 13 years, the popular site announced its farewell and that too without a warning.
However, the arrival of Torrentz.eu has brought joy for the torrent users. We will have to wait and watch if the website continues to exist and if yes, how.
