Website offline and reports of TamilRockers shut down (October 2020)
Several news outlets such as Times of India and India.com have reported that TamilRockers domain (s) were deactivated by ICANN after several DMCA reports were filed against the torrent site. However, the corresponding Whois information does not show a domain status that confirms this. Other reports suggest the site has been blocked again. A film critic tweeted
Good news for Kollywood industry. #Tamilrockers seems to be blocked now
The newest official domain tamilrockers.ws is no longer hosting the original website, but domain parking ads. Since the website is offline, all TamilRockers proxies will also be inoperable. Meanwhile, TamilMV, a similar Tamil torrent site, has posted the following note on their page:
Thanks to TR for his wonderful services for a decade – TEAM TMV
It remains to be seen whether the site was actually closed. If you look at the history of the site, it wouldn’t be uncommon to see TamilRockers coming back with a new domain. While rumors on Twitter and other social media platforms claim that Tamilrockers will be closed permanently, others predict that a new domain will be coming very soon.
Some users suggested TamilMV (proxies) as an alternative for TamilRockers website.
