Earlier on December,9th The Pirate Bay was raided at the Nacka station (Main TPB data cener), a nuclear-proof data center built into a mountain complex near Stockholm, Sweden. since then "thepiratebay.se" domain remained inaccessible, until today.
thepiratebay.se domain is Now Live, the website is still not functioning thought. Currently The Pirate Bay website is displaying a waving black flag background with the TPB logo along with a counter, counting up the time that's passed since the raid.
A few minutes ago came another big change when The Pirate Bay's main domain started pointing to a new IP-address (188.8.131.52) connected to a server hosted in Moldova. All this is indicating that the website may back to function again very soon.
ThePirateBay website went down on Early December last year, resulting of a police raid on Data center that has all the Pirate website data. Today, ThePirateBat.se official website has put a countdown to the date "February,1st". The website has also added firework animations and a "WeAreTPB" (We are The Pirate Bay) banner, but nothing else appears to be new.
It looks like the Pirate Bay is coming back online on the first day of Next month (Feb,2015)... As per their past history, The Pirate Bay has always managed to jump back into action, since their services are all cloud-based and their database is not in a single location, the timer suggests that the website will bounce back into action next month. We can only wait and watch to find out what will happen on February,1st.
On Early December, The Pirate Bay was raided at the Nacka station, a nuclear-proof data center built into a mountain complex near Stockholm, which caused the website to go down.
Today (1st,Feb 2015) The Pirate Bay is BACK ONLINE and its main domain is now accessible via www.thepiratebay.se and the website has started serving torrents to the masses again, much to the delight of millions of users. The Pirate Bay's homepage currently features a Phoenix.
Currently, The Pirate Bay doesn't have any ads at the moment but the look and feel of the site is familiar, and the user accounts are working properly too. The "Contact Us," "RSS" and "Register" links are not operational yet and redirects to a 404 Error page.
Based on the recent torrents it appears that data loss is minimal. The latest upload was on December,9th last year, the same day TPB's servers were raided.
