BitTorrent Domain Exodus Continues As Torrentz Dumps .COM

The Internet's second biggest BitTorrent site is dumping its .COM domain. In an apparent response to the US Government’s Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement recent seizures of domain names, the site moved to a new home. Despite being only a meta-search engine, Torrentz.com appears to be taking no chances with an immediate .EU domain migration.

torrentz.euThe fallout from last month’s domain name seizures carried out by US authorities continues to spread in the file-sharing community.


Torrent-Finder, which shifted to a .INFO domain to continue its operations, is fighting back with legal representation. Others, unsettled by the developing atmosphere of uncertainty, are taking steps to mitigate any potential future action against their sites.


Already several private trackers have invested in alternative domain names which are at least currently believed to be outside US control or influence. Early December the popular Demonoid tracker showed its hand with a shift from a .COM to a .ME domain.


While seizing the domain names of a fully fledged torrent site with index, categorization, heavy moderation, tracker and seedboxes might not be a huge surprise in the current climate, the targeting of the Torrent-Finder meta-search engine came as a real shock to the file-sharing community.


So there can be little doubt that Torrentz, the Internet’s second biggest torrent site, eyed the recent developments with an element of disbelief. As a meta-search engine it should be absolutely fine but the unofficially established rules of the game appear to have changed, despite being based on a case filled with serious mistakes.


To that end, today we can confirm that Torrentz has officially dumped its .COM domain in favor of Torrentz.eu. There’s no official announcement from the site but anyone visiting the old URL is immediately redirected. This change is a permanent one, we have learned.


Two years ago Torrentz already faced a hostile domain takeover from a hacker, but this issue was resolved quickly and without any serious consequences. We assume that moving away from the .COM domain is deemed to be the path of least resistance by the Torrentz team.


But its not just BitTorrent sites that are affected by this environment of uncertainty. With the seizing of the domains of several hip-hop sites – RapGodFathers.com, RMX4U.com, Dajaz1.com, and OnSmash.com – that community is also worried for its future.


A handful of bewildered site owners have contacted TorrentFreak during the last month with questions ranging from “Why were these sites taken down?” through to “What can we do to avoid the same fate?” Our answer to these sites has been consistent – they have been targeted for being involved in RIAA-label music.


For those in hip-hop, the chance to really take their music back to the streets should be a breath of fresh air and a poke in the eye for the corporates who have tried, once they realized it was a money spinner, to absorb their scene during the last 20 years.


For everyone else, other tactics will have to be employed. The technology war to stay online – and findable with a search engine – has only just begun.

Thank you for the well provided information. Apologies for the offtopic post however i just need somebody to share this with. I am seriously distraught over the event I confronted at the job and am simply seated here, writing in order to destroy time. Need to have somebody to go through my thoughts and give an honest view. I am a teacher of British literature at the college of New york and I dealt with a dilemma with one of my students this morning. A young man by the name Trent handed in a term paper for my course according to the scarlett letter novel. When I was grading the papers, I read over the composition and it flowed superbly. I thought that the composition was incredibly nice and that this deserved to be given a straight A grade. I was virtually complete with the grading when suddenly it occured to me that I was doing something completely wrong. The youngster was among the most awful pupils in my class. How could he produce this kind of mona lisa. I smelled something and asked him to come see me in my business office soon after classes. We had a serious chitchat and I was able to make the kid expose the source of the brilliant work. It proved he bought an essay internet on a website, so it was done by someone else. I explored yahoo and bing and discovered the web-site right aways (the search phrase I used was Essay Writing Tips) they usually pop up right on the first web page. Right now my trouble is how do i continue my educational function if you can find websites like these in existence? All of my individuals can go and get a term paper. What shall I do to the kid who got trapped? I am drinking on a light beer, thinking hard...
