The common url for Kickass Torrents website http://kat.ph went down around 2 weeks ago. There is an article on Torrentfreak discussing the original situation.
A few moments ago KickassTorrents disappeared from the Internet prompting the usual flurry of worried emails. While these instances of downtime are usually down to minor technical issues that tend to sort themselves out, there are signs that something a little more serious might be underway. Details are sketchy but at the moment it appears that the site’s KAT.ph domain is being replaced with a new one, KickAss.to.
But the original domain is now back up and redirecting to their new domain http://kickass.to
