With hundreds of thousands of guests for each working day, Torrentz2 is the most-employed torrent meta-lookup engine on the World-wide-web.
Torrentz2 took above from the unique Torrentz website, which shut its doorways during the summer time of 2016, and continued company as regular.
The site’s level of popularity hasn’t absent unnoticed by copyright holders who effectively requested the web site to be blocked in nations around the world all-around the globe. The Torrentz2.eu area remained operational in other elements of the environment but this weekend that adjusted as very well.
Starting a handful of hrs back, Torrentz2 became unreachable. Rather of seeing the site’s acquainted homepage, browsers return an error message informing individuals that the web site can’t be arrived at.
Even though downtime can happen for a range of reasons, a brief look at the area’s status demonstrates that anything critical is likely on. The EURid registry has placed the domain on ‘serverhold,’ which implies that it’s suspended and beneath investigation.
“This domain identify is registered to the area name holder as revealed in WHOIS, but is briefly inactive (i.e. internet site and email do not purpose) and below investigation,” the registry reports.
The EURid registry doesn’t offer any much more information but the steps are possible section of an enforcement exertion associated to copyright infringement allegations.
Without a doubt, the Torrentz2 operator informs us that the action is the result of an purchase from a public prosecutor.
“Torrentz2.eu has been suspended on Community Prosecutor’s Order,” the website’s operator says, incorporating that its backup area, Torrentz2.is, is nonetheless operating.
The web page operator didn’t mention the jurisdiction or place the buy arrived from. We requested for clarification and further specifics and will increase those if we hear back again (see update below).
In the earlier, the EURid registry also took motion in opposition to torrent web pages, together with the primary Torrentz.eu, placing these domains ‘on hold.’ This was completed after a criticism was filed with the Brussels prosecutor. These domains remained operational, nonetheless, and the ‘on hold’ position was eventually removed.
In this case, Torrentz2.eu has been harder strike. Buyers can no more time entry the web page from its initial domain title. The website’s formal backup area Torrentz2.is, which is managed by Iceland’s ISNIC registry, stays obtainable.
Update: The e mail Torrentz2 obtained from EURid only referenced a “General public Prosecutor’s Purchase” with no any specifics, together with the jurisdiction or nation. We will attempt to come across out far more.
