Whenever The Pirate Bay is unavailable or down, users start to speculate that it is possible that Internet Service Providers have been asked to block the website. Many also believe that it is likely that the website has changed its domain name yet again.

TorrentFreak talked to The Pirate Bay team in order to find out about the downtime. TPB team revealed that there are problems beyond their control.
"As far as we are concerned TPB is online. Network connectivity issues are outside of our control. Many people are experiencing no issues connecting to TPB," member of The Pirate Bay team informed the website.
"Sooner or later these routing issues will be resolved. In the meantime, a proxy or VPN can be used," the person added. TF updated that the issues related to routing have been taken care of after 24 hours. Even if The Pirate Bay goes down, users find a way to access TPB using proxy websites. There are countless proxy websites for The Pirate Bay available on the internet.
The Pirate Bay has been on the list of Hollywood and anti-piracy organisations and they are constantly finding ways to shut down the website permanently.
