The Pirate Bay, one of the most popular sites for file sharing, once again thwarted authorities trying to shut it down.
After briefly disappearing because its Caribbean domain name, thepiratebay.sx, was seized by authorities, the site popped back into action on thepiratebay.ac, according to The Verge and originally reported by Torrent Freak.
The “.ac” is the country code, top-level domain of an isolated volcanic island almost 1,000 miles from the coast of Africa in the Atlantic Ocean, called Ascension Island. (Photo: Wikemedia Commons)
