Beloved torrent site Isohunt resurrected by external group : worldleaks


When Isohunt and its owner were hit with a $110 million fine from the MPAA earlier this month, most users thought it was over for the beloved torrent site. But a new project has resurrected the site with a near-identical layout, hoping to recapture the community behind the original site. The only difference is new ownership and a new domain,, housed by the Pacific Island of Tonga.

Launched on Tuesday, the new site has restored roughly 75 percent of the old site’s torrent database, the vast majority of which infringe on copyright protections. Speaking to TorrentFreak, the new site’s owners reported their mission as more about restoring Isohunt than substituting it. “IsoHunt has been a big part of the torrent world for more than a decade. It’s a heavy loss,” a source told TorrentFreak. “Media corporations don’t like innovative competition and isoHunt’s fate is one of the examples of how they deal with it.”
