    Popular torrent site ExtraTorrent has permanently shut down. The abrupt decision was announced a few minutes ago in a brief message posted on the site's homepage. This means that after the demise of KickassTorrents and Torrentz.eu, the torrent community must say farewell to another major player.

    In a surprise move, ExtraTorrent decided to shut down today, for good.

    Users who access the site’s homepage are welcomed by a short but clear message, indicating that the popular torrent index will not return (the message appears intermittently).

    “ExtraTorrent has shut down permanently.”

    “ExtraTorrent with all mirrors goes offline.. We permanently erase all data. Stay away from fake ExtraTorrent websites and clones. Thx to all ET supporters and torrent community. ET was a place to be….”

    TorrentFreak reached out to ExtraTorrent operator SaM who confirmed that this is indeed the end of the road for the site.

    “It’s time we say goodbye,” he said, without providing more details.



    With ExtraTorrent’s demise the BitTorrent community has lost yet another prominent player. Whether this also means the end of associated release groups, such as EtHD and ettv, remains to be seen.

    ExtraTorrent was founded in November 2006, at a time when sites such as TorrentSpy and Mininova were dominating the landscape. Nonetheless, ExtraTorrent was determined to develop an audience of its own.

    The site went on to outgrow many of its predecessors and with millions of daily visitors, ExtraTorrent ended up as the second largest torrent site, trailing only behind The Pirate Bay.

    The site’s popularity placed it in the crosshairs of various entertainment industry groups in recent months. These outfits regularly pressured hosting companies and domain name services to take action.

    It’s unclear whether legal pressure had anything to do with the decision to shut down, but that wouldn’t come as a surprise.

    ExtraTorrent is the latest in a series of BitTorrent giants to fall in recent months. Previously, sites including KickassTorrents, Torrentz.eu, TorrentHound and What.cd went offline.

    here are a list of popular alternatives. Feel free to add more to this thread.

    Used The Pirate Bay for donkeys years now and almost always has what I want.

    It's worth noting that when ISP's and take downs effect TPB it is ALWAYS working fine via TOR.

    Never heard of it.

    I take it, it was a public tracker, like The Pirate Bay?

    I use LimeTorrents, RARBG, and The Pirate Bay.

    ExtraTorrent and ETRG, released a hell of a lot of stuff. You would find torrents from many other sites with their .txt file still left in them (origianlly downloaded from ExtraTorrent.cc)

    Good shout. I had used that in the past and forgot all about it. Another one where you see their torrents posted to other sites.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is also a good one. Youll need a proxy to access.

    I've always found IPTorrents better than torrentday for my linux distros etc, but each to their own.

    Iptorrents and torrentday here too.

    i used to use bitsoup soup but they got greedy and went payasyougo when they changed to gimmepeers now they want a monthly fee.

    ip torrents are far better and free so why bother with greedy sites that force payment.
    I dont mind donating every now and then but every month is a pistachio < spell check changed that from pisstake.
    Find me on Instagram and twitter @mrteajunke.

    IPT now blocked by "Order of the High Court" along with a load of others I used to be able to access - like Scene Source.
    TorrentDay, I'm still accessing by the skin of my teeth, but kind of thinking I need to get access to at least one more new one.

    Anyone got any invites to any private trackers not being targeted?
    I hear filelist.ro is meant to be a good one.
