KickassTorrents (KAT) is a website that provides a directory for torrent files and magnet links to facilitate peer-to-peer file sharing using the BitTorrent protocol. It was founded in 2008 and by November 2014, KAT became the most visited BitTorrent directory in the world, overtaking The Pirate Bay, according to the site’s Alexa ranking. KAT went offline on 20 July 2016 when the domain was seized by the U.S. government.
After the original website was banned, many KickAss mirror sites appeared in search results. But these mirror sites failed to attract the users and were also shut down.
KAT Proxy Sites :
The original KickAss website was shut down years ago and there is no way to access it, but there are many proxy sites available that host torrent files.
The problem with these proxy sites is that their site name(or domain name) changes after some time so that the government cannot track them. Therefore it’s not easy to find these proxy websites online. There are a few websites that have a list of working proxy sites, but the problem with these websites is that most of the proxy sites mentioned in the list are either shut down or blocked by the ISP.
So how to access the Kickass proxy sites and download torrents? Don’t worry, there are few websites that have a list of proxy sites that are up and running.
