Popular torrents website, Extratorrent.cc has shut down permanently, here are top three alternatives
Updated (17th May) : Today’s news confirmed our worst fears! ExtraTorrent has shut down permanently.
The second most popular torrent website, Extratorrent is down since past four hours. Visitors opening Extratorrent.cc get a CloudFlare 504 error message which means that there is hosting related error at the Extratorrent end.
Extratorrent going down with hosting related issues is rare. Its main rival and the number one torrent website in the world, The Pirate Bay suffers such hosting related issues almost every month. This is the first time in 2017 that we are reporting a hosting related issue with Extratorrent and we hope that it is not serious considering the fact that torrent and movie streaming websites are shutting down like nine pins. Only last week, another popular movie streaming website, Coke & Popcorn decided to shut shop presumably under pressure from the anti-piracy media groups.
The website tracking website, It Is Currently Down shows that Extratorrent is down for nearly six hours.
We are reaching out to Extratorrent admin to know the real issue behind the outage and the probable time by which Extratorrent will be up and running again. Torrent downloader who do not wish to wait until such time can use the following three torrent website alternatives in the meantime.
ThePirateBay: The first in our list is perhaps the most popular torrent download website right now. The Pirate Bay with its powerful search of torrents content giving it more reason to be chosen as an alternative to Extratorrent.cc.
YTS aka YIFY.ag : YTS.ag is not the original YTS or YIFY website but a good clone. After the demise of original YIFY/YTS this website took its place and since it has gained lots of popularity with its unique style website look.
RARBG : RarBG gained quick popularity and provides torrent files and magnet links to facilitate p2p file sharing. The site has been blocked by UK, Saudi Arabia, Denmark, Portugal and several other countries.
