One of the popular torrent sites is the yify sites; it was founded in 2010 by Yiftach Swery. While this was in existence a lot of users visited which led the site to gain enough traffic. In 2011, Aug authorities in the United kingdom blocked the site; after the ban, they already had a backup to the torrent site, with that proxy site was launched.
Among a lot of torrent sites, yify is the most searched site. As days pass by, there is also an increase in the number of people who search for this site. So in Mar, 2015 due to legal pressure FRNIC suspended the domain name of Yify. However, at the end of the month yify managed to come back with a different domain name as YTS.
In October of 2015, all users were worried saying that Yify torrents not working. When no one expected that this would happen yify went down without any announcement by any workers or any inchargers of yify torrents. Users hoped that it happens often, so it will definitely come back again but unfortunately it did not come back again.
