opular torrent website TorrentHound has decided to pack its bags and cease its operations. This volunteer decision comes in the wake of the recent demise of Kickasstorrents and Torrentz.
TorrentHound continued to grow and attract millions of monthly users since its inception in 2007. However, it looks like the website owners have decided to shut it down.
Hinting the decision, TorrentHound founder informed TorrentFreak with a tiny message — “Finito”.
In its farewell message on the website, you can see some “not terrible” places left for torrents, including the likes of The Pirate Bay, Extratorrent, and more. It looks like TorrentHound was facing some pressure from copyright activists and legal authorities.

This recent development leaves the users with other torrent websites that were already enjoying traffic boost due to the decease of other top websites.
