Thread: TorrentLeech Website Located in The U.S

  1. #1
    I've read a few posts about this on other forums so I decided to check for myself. TL's site is now hosted on a server with the IP 63.251.92.19 but their tracker is located in Malaysia.

    Does anyone know why they would move their Website to a U.S. based server?

    Website is not important.
    As long as the personal data info is located at a secure location.

    @zedex - this is a forum you know. People do like to talk about things. Funny that. If you think it's somehow a security leak then you clearly dont understand that this info is freely available. You dont need to come to FST to find out a website's IP.

    On topic: As far as I see 63.251.92.19 is registered to Orbit Sciences Corporation. Torrentleech.org is at 203.121.110.243 which is hosted in Malaysia.

    Zeus, you made me second guess myself so I ran my own tracert and ping and Torrentleech.org resolves to the IP address 64.74.96.241. I had previously used network-tools.com to ping Torrentleech.org. The IP address you posted belongs to the server being used for TL's tracker, not their Website.

    vinhkhang01, I agree that it's more important to have the tracker in a more secure location but without a Website it will be impossible to find the torrent files. I realize that other large torrent trackers are located in the U.S. but given TL's high profile it seems strange that they are hosting it in a hostile country.
