Extratorrent shut down in spring of 2017. ExtraTorrent stays offline with all it’s mirror sites. No alternative ExtraTorrent are online.
Extratorrent.cc shows a farewell message:
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….
With ExtraTorrent’s demise the torrent community has lost yet another prominent torrent site. After the shut down of KickassTorrents and Torrentz.eu in the last months, ExtraTorrent is the 3rd mayor torrent site that stopped operations.
ExtraTorrent ‘replacements’ that claim to be a reincarnation of the original site or an alternative extratorrent.cc mirror are fake sites.
A new site appeared that looks like a clone of the popular ExtraTorrent.cc. The team behind Extratorrent.cd claims to have the new site been restored from ExtraTorrent.cc with all data intact. A an email send to several news outfits they claim:
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.
The staff behind the new Extratorrent.cd say that users can now register and login, while existing users may continue using their original account to browse and download torrent files. When checking the user login and upload pages one is forwarded to the homepage.
Actually a TV shows and movie torrents of ExtraTorrents release group ETTV and ETRG can be found on Extratorrent.cd. Primary release group of ExtraTorrent aka ETRG stopped operating when ExtraTorrent.cc shut down and warned users to stay away of clones or Extratorrent replacements. However, some people associated with ExtraTorrent now claim to have successfully the torrent site. Torrents from other categories seem to be mirrored from The Pirate Bay.
Extratorrent.ag is another copycat that is linked to same group that hijacked EZTV (domain and brand) and YTS/YIFY. Torrents linked on Extratorrent.ag can be found on the other clones YTS.ag and EZTV.ag. Uploading torrents, commenting and other community features known from the original ExtraTorrent’s are not available with this clone.
Extratorrents.cx is just another clone that let visitors register for an account but do not provide any tools (no upload, no comments, no settings).

ExtraTorrent (ET) has steadily grown its user base over the past years and has become one of the most active torrent communities. The torrent site is also the home of the popular ETTV and ETRG release groups. ETRG (ExtraTorrent Release Group) is one of the best known sources for ripped movies and uploads dozens of popular film torrents on various torrent sites each week.
Extratorrent is often referred to as Extratorrents. This is mostly misleading for users as they do not find the correct web address (extratorrent.cc).
ExtraTorrent was shut down in May 2017 by the sites staff and will stay down as stated by the sites operators. The infamous torrent site can be accessed but is not working as a torrent index anymore. It just serves a blank page.
