The famous torrent site RARBG has closed down after 15 years of operation. It was especially beloved in illegal torrenting circles specializing in movies. Which websites will take its place?
RARBG was established in 2008 and since then it has been operating continuously for 15 years. Until a few days ago announced the termination of his services for various reasons such as health issues related to COVID which led to the tragic death of one of those involved.
The war between Russia and Ukraine also affected the group, with RARBG suggesting it had members fighting on both sides.
Rising data center operating costs in Europe also played a role. With income struggling to keep up with rising costs, shutting down the site ultimately seemed like the best solution.
Of course, the void left by RARBG will be replaced very quickly by many would-be replacements. The history of illegal websites efiberi is full of such examples as remind one of the Lernaean hydra. You cut off one head, two come out.
Since these types of sites make huge profits from advertising, we will soon see other similar sites taking the lion's share.
