    Same... So a bit of a pointless thread. Could have just said "Anybody else have problems with isohunt" instead of declaring it dead without a doctors verdict.

    It's been blocked by BT for a few months and other ISPs seem to be following. Since then I've been using a US proxy and it opens fine - even today.

    How could the original service be shutdown totally and not just cancellation of tld, when the founder is Canadian.

    IsoHunt.to was/is a community project that tried to copy the original (.com) that like has been said, was shut down a long time ago. Isohunt.to is what I'm referring to above.

    I knew that it was a community project, I just dont get why the guy that ran isohunt.com couldn't just change the domain and ignore the lawsuit since he wasn't sued in Canada. it would be like be agreeing to shutdown a website after getting sued over it in Iran.
