HDClub, Russia’s Leading HD-Only Torrent Site, Permanently Shuts Down

After more than a decade online, HDClub, Russia's leading HD & 3D torrent site, has permanently shut down. With around 170,000 users, HDClub was known for high-quality releases that often leaked to sites like The Pirate Bay. However, its operators say that continual complaints from rightsholders, third-party attacks, and the demise of hardcore enthusiasts, mean the end of the site.

While millions of users frequent popular public torrent sites such as The Pirate Bay and RARBG every day, there’s a thriving scene that’s hidden from the wider public eye.

Every week, private torrent trackers cater to dozens of millions of BitTorrent users who have taken the time and effort to gain access to these more secretive communities. Often labeled as elitist and running counter to the broad sharing ethos that made file-sharing the beast it is today, private sites pride themselves on quality, order and speed, something public sites typically struggle to match.

In addition to these notable qualities, many private sites choose to focus on a particular niche. There are sites dedicated to obscure electronic music, comedy, and even magic, but HDClub’s focus was given away by its name.
