- The original website was shut down earlier this month
- The new domain is working and has updated content as well
- ExtraTorrent asked users not to fall for clone sites
The fans of the torrent website have reportedly put up a new domain – ExtraTorrent.cd – with content from the original website and have said that new content will be added to the website as well.
Similar to when KickAss Torrents was brought back to life as KickAss.cd, this new site appears to have been restored with all data intact. There doesn’t seem to be any major differences in the two sites, besides the web address. To make things clearer (or muddy them in a sense) there was a communication sent to a few Indian technology publications. The email claims that yes, ExtraTorrent is alive and well thanks to uploaders and admins.
We are a group of uploaders and admins from ExtraTorrent. As you know, SAM from ExtraTorrent pulled the plug yesterday and took all data offline under pressure from authorities. We were in deep shock and have been working hard to get it back online with all previous data.
We have successfully resurrected it back to its glory at extratorrent.cd with all available data. It’s live and new data is continuously being updated. Some small features are not yet working and we are getting it fixed as we speak. Our group had previously resurrected The Pirate Bay and KickAss Torrents (as kickass.cd) when these went offline. These sites are our home and we won’t let anyone destroy them.
