Can't Access KickassTorrents - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as,

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Just wanted to say I`m experiencing 404 errors! They come and go!

James Gander · 21 March 2014 - 04:59

Kickass is running but i heard in the community that there was mantenance on the site yesterday. Today the site is running v-slow.

Deep Stranger · 17 March 2014 - 22:46

Shaun Lambert · 16 March 2014 - 01:18

works fine with google chrome incognito, otherwise not. not even the status site is down, i think it's definitely a cookie issue. Sydney Australia

Kya Ann Roberts · 16 March 2014 - 00:40

Down in South Australia... Very inconvenient... Keeps telling me it's my fault? Well Obviously it's not... I tried using PirateBay instead but that wouldn't let me download either... Extremely frustrating!

Dan Howes · 16 March 2014 - 00:22

Works until you try to login via

after submit login details constantly goes to the unavailable page clear cookies it works so login system must be up the shoot! DANHUK

Couch Cooper · 15 March 2014 - 21:07

Still down. You can browse from the main page, but no luck attempting any searches.

Shelley Beringer · 15 March 2014 - 21:05

This is the message that I keep getting: Something nasty happened. Please try to reload a page or visit for details.
Episode 09 Vengeance Most frustrating! Trying to download my favorite TV episodes and can't get anything but this message :(

Drew Peacock · 15 March 2014 - 20:43

I'm pretty sure no mirror site or proxy will work properly. Yes, you can still browse KAT and download though. They will most likely be limited to that. So no logging in... And then there is the big problem of it being a cached version.
If you look at the latest forum threads here:
You'll notice that I posted in the 'Suggest Achievements! Official Thread V2' thread about '4 minutes ago' (has been at 4 minutes for about 20 or so) when in actuality, I posted that over 2 hours ago. Also, the new achievement isn't even there... :P

Gita Gita · 15 March 2014 - 19:42

this site keeps saying everything is fine, that the problem is with the me (user). def something is wrong with KAT in Pennsylvania.

Diwas Upadhyay · 15 March 2014 - 19:42

Please refresh the page in a minute from here

Tommy Jensen · 6 March 2014 - 12:06

Sam Zentner · 6 March 2014 - 11:58

everytime i go on it says:
504 System Error
It appears the website you are trying to visit is having technical difficulties or is no longer available.

But in my URL it says:

HELP, this needs to get fixed!!

Uzair Asif · 12 February 2014 - 01:39

KickassTorrents and EZTV, two of the most visited torrent sites on the Internet, have been down over the past few hours. The popular TV-torrent group is suffering from a DDoS attack, which may have hit and various other sites as well.

Update: appears to be coming back slowly. and will work for torrents But you can't log in with them.

Malik Mohammad Talish Awan · 11 February 2014 - 08:57

Down for me too here in PAK. and using proxy i can't log-in to my account. also not letting me log-in to m account

Ezio Auditore da Firenze · 10 February 2014 - 14:40

use instead of

the secure site is down due to the DDOS attacks.

Josh Johnson · 10 February 2014 - 14:37

yes indeed they are right. remove the s from https and itll take you right there. in my case already signed in too (my account is always signed in).

James DeWitt · 10 February 2014 - 12:43 is down for me in the US. https is enabled by default though, and some have stated that using http allows it to work. I'm wondering why I can't use secure HTTP now... hmm

Krispy Kyun · 10 February 2014 - 12:39

I see what is going on... You can view KAT as long as you are not using "https!" You must only connect using "http." ... However, you still will not be able to sign-in unless you are 'always signed-in' using http! I can download from KAT by using Chrome in "http" mode, not "https." You can then navigate the site and download, but you will not get any credit since you will not be signed in. --- Pikachu

Sameer Sam · 10 February 2014 - 12:22

i thought the issue has been solved because last night i've talking to Mods and they said it have been fixed but i don't know what the F--k going on, KAT not available since 19 hours, i hope it will be back but when? all we can do just hope!!

Message: dear folks & peeps Kat haven't blocked By any ISP, so don't to worries about blocked or unblocked, it is a server problem, you can see this message "The connection has timed out, The server at is taking too long to respond." so be patient it will be back soon!! Regards: TheStrength (SaM)

Catja Huijsen · 10 February 2014 - 12:22

Down here in the Netherlands. It was working this morning. This has happened a few times the past 3 days.

Dulce Mendes · 10 February 2014 - 11:58

I f#!king hate facebook but I open an account just because of KAT, please, put the site back on I miss my friends - Magicpotions

Victoria Jane Baden-Powell · 10 February 2014 - 11:57

Krispy Kyun · 10 February 2014 - 10:21

Hello to all my little friends at KAT! ... YES! The site is down! ... This site, "Is It Down Right Now" is totally wrong! It is down for everyone in every country on the planet! My VPN proves it! LOL. It looks like it is ExtraTorrent and TorrentHound for me. So Hello MR. ZOOOMA! ---- Signed, Mrs. Pikachu! :D

Vindov Vodniv · 10 February 2014 - 07:49

dr_stanley here... no luck signing in (california) i can get to the site but anytime it needs to connect to https it goes nowhere. i see people just chattin about and having a good ole time [:Qmad] but still i can't login

Josh Johnson · 10 February 2014 - 05:02

no offense to kat staff but wtf is going on here, we get no communication from you. is anybody going to fix this? goin on day 3 or 4 of the site being mostly down its drivin me crazy! nb, canada.

John Smith · 10 February 2014 - 03:27

Far out, still down. i can get it on some of the proxies, but i'm scared to login on those. TheLemur

Abdulrazaq M. Bashrahil · 9 February 2014 - 21:15

Just use : (NO LOGIN)
Or change servers using VPN to: Turkey, Indonesia, Luxembourg, Germany (LOGIN POSSIBLE)
All servers in UK and whole American continent serve low hence ain't working!

Bobby Garza · 9 February 2014 - 19:56

Baja California Mex is suffering at this moment with no Kickass... Comes and goes all day today. :'(

James Gander · 9 February 2014 - 14:00

a lot of proxys work such as and but you cant login and use all th features

does anyone know if is to do with imunicity PAC file, has the domain been removed from the file and if so what has it been replaced with?

'Aaron Johnson · 9 February 2014 - 13:00 does work. Interface wise it's the closest to original kickass site, the other sites miss some of the graphic elements. It looks and feels like the real thing.

Daan van Silfhout · 9 February 2014 - 12:47 can't be reached but does the job here in The Netherlands

Dave Taylor · 9 February 2014 - 12:28

Look people just use chrome and it will say cant reach server would you like cahed copy, works fine and with full speed

Theron Smith · 8 February 2014 - 23:06

It works if you make your location untraceable, and yet it doesn't work from the US. The US has become firewalled and controlled like China, any remaining freedom is gone.

Dan Howes · 8 February 2014 - 16:42

Sorry to say guys looks like we are down again! I was talking to the site administrator Last night and yesterdays down time was due to some kind of server error in HQ. Will keep you posted on any information that comes my way or when its backup. DANHUK (SU)

Αλέξανδρος Καραχάλιος · 8 February 2014 - 16:35 need to change ( etc etc) because are not legitimate and for not take the leader and all group he need this :P every 4-5 months

Mich Canter · 8 February 2014 - 15:51

The Internet Service Providers are shutting down the website. I tried to go to without a proxy, no response. then i use a proxy, works like a charm. So if you have Google Chrome, get a extension called, "Hola." If you use Firefox, get Autoproxy.

Peter Askme · 8 February 2014 - 15:26

Melbourne Australia, was down, now up, but was working before that. At least there is an alternative site to use

James Gander · 8 February 2014 - 15:07

yeh it was up till about ten mins ago and kickass went down in the middle of me creating a long thread wit lotsa bbcode in it. Very frustrating grrrr PISS ME OFF!!

Jason Johnson · 8 February 2014 - 14:23

So if it is still down it does look like ISPs are blocking it. Using Firefox and Autoproxy I am actually able to go to However, I cannot get to EZTV.IT still and I am not sure what the deal is there. Looks like a crackdown.

Jo Anne · 8 February 2014 - 07:35 goes up then its down; not sure what is going on.. I get this page cant be displayed then I try again in a bit its up again... then goes back down

Michael A. Watkins · 8 February 2014 - 06:47

When I type in a torrent for KAT to find, then I a get an error message... I get it each time I search for something... is the site down?

Wesley Ruede · 8 February 2014 - 05:48 and work but the first one is so slow. I was having issues connecting to but it just popped back up! YESH! I'm in USA by the way.

Jane Doh · 8 February 2014 - 05:37

still down in UK, been couple days now tried all the tips on here for alternate sites but no luck :( can get site up so it looks like its working but when I look for something get the dreaded off line message

Muhammad Farooq · 8 February 2014 - 04:58

down in Dubai, United Arab emirates.. Its really bad.. because none of the sites are working..
What's up people? any idea what we can do.. Seriously.. No other website is best enough!

Marley Shipstone · 8 February 2014 - 04:53

Im in the US, and is down but is up and working. havent tried DLing anything but can browse and add torrents, im at an internet cafe so i wont be able to tell if the speed is just bad Wi-Fi.

Kim Benoit · 8 February 2014 - 03:13

I can't get on in Canada and although I can get on I can't sign in... This sucks!!! Anyone else having this problem in Canada?

G David Lewis · 7 February 2014 - 19:43 and TPB are being actively blocked by Verizon and other ISP's in their DNS. You can bypass this by adding OpenDNS servers in your network connection config - &

April S Rolfe · 7 February 2014 - 16:37 is working right now in Adelaide, Australia - it is a beta looking site but still usable.

David Morgan · 7 February 2014 - 14:42

Trying to download a show through Vuze, Kickass usually has them all. But t's still not working in FL.

Alex Middleton · 7 February 2014 - 10:35

Ddos attacks on, extratorrent, and eztv. Slowly coming back up, but will be down for a bit longer. Personally, I am also currently unable to access piratebay or isohunt. Mind you I haven't tried to get on isohunt in about 6 months or more, so it could have been taken down a while back for all I know. Here's the article about kickass:

Freedom PT · 7 February 2014 - 10:35 ON ON ON ON the main domain is active and kicking but under DoS attack so dont worry i will be back soon.

However you can still bypass the ISP attack with Thor Browser and PirateBrowser V0.6.

Pedro Stanley · 7 February 2014 - 09:42

down in netherlands
FIX: Go to choose kickasstorrents and its working! slow but it does works 100%

Justin Courchesne · 7 February 2014 - 09:35

KICKASS IS NOT DOWN... Internet Service Providers are blocking the Domain Names. EASIEST and oldest trick around this is use a proxy that has an ISP that hasnt block

I don't recommend going to ANY website that does that is proxying the website no telling what those websites might sneak into your computer.

Easiest and SAFEST bet is to just:

1. google "BROWSER PROXY"
2. Open a proxy site
3. Type in url and IF it doesnt work try a different one

Baker Kawesa · 7 February 2014 - 09:17

It was working an hour ago and now it says "KickassTorrents is not available right now", so it's probably not the evil ISPs blocking it -- after all they make a huge chunk of their money off torrent traffic so why would they bend over backwards for the copyright industry's imaginary lost profits? Gotta love thepiratebay for resilience -- they get their ass kick down and they're back up again with a new domain name in less than 24 hours. Kickass though is something special and it would be pretty sad to see it go like this. Heck if it's down for everyone, the world must be coming to an end.

Megan Parker · 7 February 2014 - 08:16

This is murder for me. I am constantly on KAT and with it being down... its just plain murder! I guess I may have to become a temporary Pirate. Arrrrgh.

Sue Robinson · 7 February 2014 - 07:33

Nova Scotia, Canada--it was working for me last night & early this morning but it doesn't work now (11am) I hope it comes back. They took away bittorrent & I'm scared they will take kickass away next. It is the greatest site. in the meanwhile I am using David Morrison advice, which is>> go to then click kickass it works 100%

Bill Lutz · 7 February 2014 - 07:31

Useing a proxy and I was able to get through to ISPs are blocking them. USA members might wanna read this...,2817,2416050,00.asp

Mohamad Qureshi · 7 February 2014 - 06:54

Its been down in India for about 19 hours now, the other kickass proxies work but you have to install a different tool for that, its not directly taking the torrent.

Jose Dugy · 7 February 2014 - 04:01

everyone just be patient, its loading really really slow but its working, and if its not then theres other alternatives posted in the comments that do work. it should be up and running everywhere by morning pacific time.

Wayde Scott French · 7 February 2014 - 03:51

i can still access all of kickass sites perfectly fine for the last 4 hours i am atm using without any issues at all, lm in Sydney Australia

if you still cant connect to kickass at all then try searching for it though a proxy search engine

Pernille Sangfugl Andersen · 7 February 2014 - 03:50

I cannot enter the site! I get the google chrome opps! page too! I hope it get fixed soon! I have some downloadin' to do! :)

Gloria Waters · 7 February 2014 - 03:47

NO CONNECTION since yesterday evening, so its been down for over 12 hrs. - I checked it out and it's NOT just me - my brother in next town gets the same response from Google Chrome ("oops!!" ...cannot connect"). We switched to Pirate Bay until it's functioning again. We are located in Ontario, Canada.

Laurie Guyard · 7 February 2014 - 01:19

it's down in France too but i followed one of the suggestion to use a browser proxy and kickass.too works with it. you can't just check the comments with it. don't know how long it will last though/ the kickass team always bounced back in the past. fingers crossed!

Reggie Kazuki · 7 February 2014 - 00:03

download here in Phil, .. is useful but too slow in downloading torrent...

Bonnie Jacobson · 6 February 2014 - 23:41

I can just barely get onto the KAT website - but the website pages are all messed up, so it's pointless trying to communicate in the forums tonight. Very upsetting!

Shaun Ellis · 6 February 2014 - 23:37

Kickass is not down...Internet Service Providers are blocking the Domain Names. EASIEST and oldest trick around this is use a proxy that has an ISP that hasnt block

Easiest and SAFEST bet is to just:

1. google "BROWSER PROXY"
2. Open a proxy site
3. Type in url and IF it doesnt work try a different one

BTW i have noticed 3 of these "KICKASS PROXY SITES" try or advertise extension so the TRUE motives of these site is questionable no one does something for free.

Just do it the old proven safe way and use proxy sites they do the same thing and you know they wont try anything funny.

Shauna Neale · 6 February 2014 - 23:36 works in Explorer In Australia. I dunno about Chrome or Firefox. Hopefully it's just a temporary thing with KIickass

Zeke Sappenfield · 6 February 2014 - 23:33

btw the site does not work only the front page comes up, i clicked to download "afternoon delight" and it sent me to a page saying purely in plain written text top left corner "KAT is down, please try again soon" i dont think it has to do with .to or .ph or .whatever problems, i think it is just down as in...maybe there doing work on the site or there server crashed but either way it is not working no matter how many ways you try it. just try different sites for the time being and we can just hope that kat gets up and running soon, a good one is if your interested... its tough to search threw but its always got new stuff

Brad Saint George · 6 February 2014 - 22:05 - not so good - not so good

Misis Ni Mi Ros · 6 February 2014 - 21:27

i also thought it was just my computer... kickass is down since yesterday... here in the Pihilippines

Darius Wilson · 6 February 2014 - 20:49

I used I see the site is down but it puts a smile on my face to see all the people from all across the nation and world who are my fellow pirates. Everything should be free! HA!

David Simmons · 6 February 2014 - 20:49

cannot load page. I get the google chrome oops! page "Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to"

Kevin Troelsen Jr. · 6 February 2014 - 20:39

Some of the mirror sites are working intermittently but otherwise I keep timing out when trying to log in or load additional comments, etc. There's definitely something going on with the site right now :(
