Pirate Bay launched with new IP, optimized for proxies

Pirate Bay launched with new IP, optimized for proxies
Pirate Bay responds to blocks.

Users in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Italy have been blocked from accessing the Pirate Bay, as widely reported. Now, the notorious BitTorrent site has launched a new site at 194.71.107.80, which may be reachable in those countries, for now.



The new site is also optimizes for use with proxies, which can help to get around a national or local block of a website. It is likely that the new IP address will be blocked in affected countries very quickly, but the proxy optimization might be useful for some users.

It is somewhat different than the normal Pirate Bay site, in that it only posts links to magnet files, it does not allow logins or comments, nor does it allow you to upload.

    I understand they shifted to magnet links a while back, and so did I.

    So long as one's torrent client can handle it, Who cares !
