Now, in less than 24 hours of the 30-year-old founder’s arrest, the website is back as a simple mirror of the original website. The resurrected website features a similar domain name–kickasstorrents.website–and an identical design.
This has been made possible by an IsoHunt member. If you remember, IsoHunt was also responsible for the revival for The Pirate Bay. However, the KAT mirror’s functionalities are limited.
Telling more about the KickassTorrents mirror, a member of IsoHunt says:
“It’s not perfect but if users need to save and archive something it’s time,” the IsoHunt team said. “We don’t know how long it can last, but at least it’s something.”
This new development proves that torrent websites aren’t going to stop and the nature of torrent files gives them freedom to be hosted anywhere. Banning and seizing torrent websites’ domain has become a repetitive exercise that doesn’t prove anything.
