A loud and clear message from the operators of ExtraTorrent that they are shutting down it forever and not planning to comeback in the future.
It is the third major website that is shutting down its services after Kickass Torrents and Torrents.eu. so we must say good bye to another major player of the torrent community. This news is shocked for the users of ExtraTorrent as they have to look for another torrent website.
If you go to extratorrent.cc you will see a clear short message saying that
“ExtraTorrent has shut down permanently”
“ExtraTorrent with all mirriors 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…
(Courtesy of TorrentFreak) The operator of ExtraTorrent SaM who confirmed this news to TorrentFreak that this is indeed the end of the road for the site. It’s time to say goodbye he said.
When ET was founded there was a boom of TorrentSpy and Mininova but they keep going hard and dominate and develop themselves as one of the biggest torrent website having over millions of user per day. The Pirate Bay is the only leading torrent website and ExtraTorrent comes second. So that means the association ETRG is also gone now. But Ettv and EtHD could remain operational if they get enough donations to sustain the expenses and if the people handling if ready to keep going, Sam added.
So RIP extratorrent.cc
