Is ExtraTorrent down or not? Is it possible for ExtraTorrent to revive again? If not, how to fix ExtraTorrent down forever?

ExtraTorrent website is down and not working anymore. Well, let's firstly take a look at the official statement from website page:

"ExtraTorrent has shut down permanently
ExtraTorrent with all mirrors goes offline. We permanently erase all data.
Stay away from fake ExtraTorrent websites and clones.
Thx to all ET supporters and torrent community.
ET was a place to be…
May 17, 2017"

From the clean words, it's easy to draw that ExtraTorrent will never come back again. Actually before this abrupt shutdown, ExtraTorrent's domain name was suspended for several times and finally abolished by its registrar in March, 2017. Here are all the (main/mirror) domain names of it: Extratorrent.com (suspended in 2013), extratorrent.cc (main domain after .com version), extratorrent.one, extra.to and extra.site.

May 17 witnessed the perpetual closure of another torrent site following Yify, The Pirate Bay (still alive with new address) and KickassTorrents, and that's exactly ExtraTorrent.cc - the second-largest torrent site in the world. Thus, millions of ExtraTorrent users have no idea on where to go for a while, some of who are still expect the coming back of their favorite torrent spot.

It always goes surprisingly similar that every time a big torrent site is closed, an array of fake versions of the dead site would resurrect to replace it with similar domain name, e.g extratorrent.cd, a Pirate Bay mirror with an ExtraTorrent skin that has attracted 10 million visitors already. We have to tell that all of those clones de facto have no connection with the offline site, and are usually quite dangerous with viruses or malicious software built in the pirating content. So don't trust any of them but find another mass-based substitute. Here're some best ExtraTorrent alternatives with top global ranking to fix ExtraTorrent.cc not working right now in 2017.

Although there are no related reports, many torrenters still suggest it's the legal pressure that put ExtraTorrent to an end. Despite that acts of both uploading, sharing copyrighted materials on the web and downloading infringing content from torrent sites are essentially against the law, governments have begun facing up to this flourishing worldwide issue seriously and started blocking on the torrent websites in recent years.

In 2015, the Pirate Bay founder was arrested by Danish police in two times and finally is banned from the country for life. Last year, The US Department of Justice seized the domain of KicassTorrent and arrested its owner Artem Vaulin. Also in the early 2017, Google, Microsoft and some other search engines were reported to join into the anti-piracy army to work on new feature to deracinate such illegal downloads...
