KickassTorrents Domain Seized; Site Taken Down

/ 2 years ago


Popular torrent site KickassTorrents (KAT) has had its Somalian domain seized and the site is currently down. KickassTorrents had over one million unique visitors a day, making it the most popular torrent site in the world, more so than The Pirate Bay.

Since The Pirate Bay was taken down at the end of last year, it was only a matter of time before law enforcement turned its attention to the biggest copyright infringers on the internet. KAT has moved domain many times in the past in an attempt to protect itself from legal takedowns, and the Somalia domain was thought to be a safe haven.

As of Monday morning, was listed as ‘BANNED’.

According to TorrentFreak, the KAT team are to revert back to the older domain soon.
