Torrentz has shut down after 13 years of operation

 

Torrentz, a popular meta-search engine for torrents, has shut down after 13 years of operation, marking an end of an era for the torrent community. 

Now the website has been disabled without warning, no longer linking to any torrents or allow their existing users to log in, effectively killing what was one of the most popular torrenting related websites in the world. 

At this time the reason behind the website's closure is unknown, as while the site did link to torrents the website never hosted any of the material itself and even had a takedown procedure in place in order to remove copyright infringing links when requested.

This comes not long after the owner of KickAssTorrents was arrested by US officials, marking a huge change in the torrenting landscape as two of the communities biggest websites are closed down.
