If you were one of the older members of the private torrent tracker HDAhoy, you probably already know that the site is inaccessible over its usual URL hdahoy.org. In this day and age when domains of file sharing sites getting seized left and right, this probably would have caused some panic amongst the sites regular users. However, there is no reason to worry – HDA wasn’t raided nor was their domain seized. It appears that the domain expired and according to a news post on site staff are seemingly unable to get it back. Good news however is that the site is now accessible under a different domain name; Hdahoy.net. There is no data loss and old user accounts and torrents are all there. If you are a new user, HDAhoy is currently open for signup as well.
For those hearing about HDA for the very first time, it’s a private torrent tracker specializing in high definition content. Launched a couple of years ago, the site currently tracks 6000+ active torrents and has an active users base of 5500+ registered members. HDA is one of those trackers powered by Gazelle tracker codebase.
Speaking of the content, HDAhoy tracks movies, TV shows, documentaries and some music videos. All of the indexed releases are high definition encodes (usually in 720p and 1080p quality). R5 Bluray Rips, Up scaled Videos, RAR/ZIP Archive Files, Youtube videos and all other non HD content are prohibited from being uploaded. Some of the torrents indexed on HDA can be seen in the screenshot below:
As mentioned earlier signups for HDA are open right now. Current maximum user limit is set to 10000 users. This leaves space for another 4500 new members, provided the signups do not close early. If you are looking for a new HD tracker, check this out.
