Popular Torrent Site Kickass Torrents Has Its Somalian Web Address Seized.

Posted on the 09 February 2015 by Worldwide @thedomains

Kickass Torrents is a very popular torrent website, the traffic probably totals in the seven figures daily, but according to Torrent Freak they just had their domain seized. They were using the Somalian extension of .So and resided at Kickass.so.

***Update*** 10:22 It looks like they have brought the site back up on the old Kickass.to.

From the article:

With millions of unique visitors per day KickassTorrents (KAT) is one the most used torrent sites on the Internet.
