Short Bytes: It looks like the world’s most popular torrent website KickassTorrents is back with a new domain dxtorrent.com. The website features the same layout and seems like a mirror of notorious torrent sharing website KAT. The original KickassTorrents domain was recently seized by the U.S. Government.

Just a couple of hours ago, I wrote a story telling you that U.S. Government has seized the different domains of KickassTorrents. The federal investigators also arrested Artem Vaulin, the alleged founder of the website.

We shared the story on our Facebook page and the fans of the website expressed their grief in large numbers. To my surprise, few of them commented the link of another website, claiming it to be a clone of KickassTorrents.

A click on the commented links took me to dxtorrent.com. I don’t know if it’s an old website that’s a KickassTorrents alternative, or some KAT mirror that has resurrected the KickassTorrents website.

This revival has been welcomed by the KAT fans on Reddit, who are busy discussing their favorite KickassTorrents alternative.

Before facing this setback, KickassTorrents has been enjoying the status of the world’s most popular torrent website, breaking into the top 70 websites in the world.
