Torrentz farewell – Torrentz.eu, world largest torrent site founded in 2003, has announced farewell to its millions of users. Torrentz.eu, meta-search engine, which hosted no torrents of its own but linked to many other sites including pirate bay. Torrentz has been a stable factor in the torrent community for over 13 years. The surprise shutdown marks the end of an era.
Some days ago and without any warning Torrentz has been disabled. It’s search functionality. At first sight the main page looks like normal but those who try to find any link to or torrent will notice that they are no longer there farewell
Millions of visitor per day the site grew out to become one of the most visited torrent site. But now this reign ends, as the popular meta-search engine. It’s shut down.
Torrentz farewell Reason:-
Everyone know the Torrentz was a free, powerful and fast meta-search engine combining results from dozens of search engines the text reads. Torrentz site’s user are no longer able to login either. Instead they see only single message “Torrentz will always love you “farewell”
The site is now referring to past tense itself, suggesting that after more than a decade the end has arrived now.
The torrentfreak was contacted by on of the operators of torrentz today. Who prefers not to comment at the moment. It’s clear, that another torrent major sites is shutting down and leaving a gaping hole.
Torrentz.eu itself never hosted any torrent file but did have a take-down procedure in place are allowing copyright holder to take down infringing the links.
Not at all rights-holders were happy with the site though. Both MPAA and RIAA have reported the site to United State (U.S) Government in past years. Which repeatedly placed it in its annual “Out of cycle Review of Notorious markets”.
Torrentz and Kick-ass torrents both shutting down. The torrent community lost two of the largets sites in a period of three weeks. Now its mean torrent user will have to find a new home.
It’s founded a few weeks before the pirate bay. Torrentz.eu was on the largest oldest torrent site still around. Torrentz first came online the site was hosting torrent files. But it swiftly reinvented itself as a search engine.
