One of the Largest Torrent Sites Has Abruptly Closed Down

TorrentzOne of the world’s biggest torrent sites has abruptly shut down.

Torrentz, a search engine for finding torrent files, has ceased operations, telling users: “Torrentz will always love you. Farewell.”

The site, founded in 2003, differed from many other torrent sites (like The Pirate Bay) in that it didn’t host any torrent files itself. Instead, it acted as a “meta-search engine,” searching other search engines for whatever the user was looking for.

Torrentfreak, which was the first to report on the closing, said it was the largest meta-search engine for torrents around.

If you go to Torrentz’ website now, it has a banner along the bottom informing visitors that “Torrentz was a free, fast and powerful meta-search engine combining results from dozens of search engines.”
