RARBG – Uptime Status, Mirrors and Alternatives

If you are looking for all the latest info on RARBG including rarbg proxies, mirror sites and how to use it safely then you are in the right place.

RARBG came onto the scene in 2008 as a decent alternative to some of the top torrent websites in the world. Even then, over ten years ago, RARBG introduced some new features which made it easy for users to find torrent files. Today, the site is essentially the same as it was when it was first released.

RARBG features pretty much all the content that torrent users generally desire. This includes popular torrent categories like audio content (including games music), movies, games, TV shows and much more.

Is RARBG Working?

RARBG is usually always up an online, it just might be on different URL’s as they keep moving the site to keep it online.

If you’ve spent much time as a member of the torrenting community, you probably don’t need us to tell you that some of the content on RARBG is not being shared legally. Internet services and various government agencies are always getting sites like RARBG blocked because their content is often protected by copyright laws. In an attempt to keep their site alive, RARBG has changed its URL several times. Some of the mirror sites you may have come across are:

Since these are mirror sites, some of them may be down when you try to access them.

Internet service providers in developed countries have come up with creative ways to make sure that sites like RARBG remain blocked. To check if the site is down at any time you can use a service called Is It Down Right Now? to see if it’s working. This can help you determine if the site is actually down or if you’re having an issue on your end that’s keeping you from accessing it therefore you will need to use a VPN (see below) or proxy sites.

If RARBG happens to be down when you attempt to use it, don’t worry too much. There are always RARBG proxies (proxy sites) and RARBG alternative torrent websites that we’ll talk more about in a later section.

How to Safely Use RARBG

One of the most common questions that we see apart from, “How do I get RARBG unblocked?” is, “How do I use RARBG safely?”

We can answer that by saying that there’s no simple answer to such a question. Things in the digital world are not as straightforward as they may seem from the outside.

For example, we know that the RARBG domain offers lots of options to download and share rarbg torrents. A lot of the media on the site, including music and movies, is subject to copyright law. If someone uses software like uTorrent or even a browser-based application to download these files it’s considered a crime in most jurisdictions.

If you live in countries like the UK, Denmark, Norway, Portugal, Bulgaria, China, India, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Morocco, Australia, Indonesia, Ireland, Finland, United Arab Emirates, Belgium, Greece, Italy, France then RARBG is blocked and you need to use a VPN to get there. If you live anywhere else, then you need to use a VPN (a safer version of a RARBG proxy) anyway to encrypt your internet traffic from your ISP and Government to restore your privacy.

If you accidentally torrent something that is subject to copyright then you can be liable for HUGE fines and legal action.


Security Gladiators in no way encourages or condones any kind of copyright violation or circumvention of restrictions. That includes torrenting or downloading illegal content. Torrenting is a great way to access and share all kinds of content on the internet and there are plenty of opportunities there to engage in legal and safe online torrenting. You need to do your own research to see if these services and torrents are legal in your own country. We suggest to always use a VPN while torrenting.

That being said, we’re not in the business of making posts to demoralize or scare our readers. Just keep in mind that the best way to access RARBG torrents safely is to use a VPN service (acting as a safe RARBG proxy). There are a few other tools such as proxy sites (unsecured RARBG proxy) and mirrors that you can use, but using a VPN is the best way to access any torrent sites, not just RARBG.

How to Unblock RARBG (aka RARBG Unblock)

As we just mentioned, regardless of your location, you have two tools at your disposal to help you on your quest of accessing RARBG from anywhere and safely.

The first tool is a VPN or Virtual Private Network. VPNs work by encrypting and routing your internet connection through a remote server before connecting you to the internet. The server acts as a middle man to protect you from the prying eyes of the government, your internet provider and anyone else looking to track your online activities or steal your personal data. The VPN gives you a new IP address so it appears you are from a different location if someone is trying to trace you.

VPNs can also unblock sites that you were previously unable to access by making it appear as though you’re in a location other than the one you’re actually in.

So you simply turn on your VPN, connect it to a server that is a country that is not blocked (acting as a rarbg proxy) then go to the site.

It is as simple as that.

The second tool you have at your disposal to unblock RARBG is a proxy service (aka RARBG Unblock). If you’re thinking about using a proxy service you should

know that an unsecured RARBG proxy is the inferior version of a VPN. You can use proxies to mask your location and circumvent geo-restrictions, but they can’t offer features like encryption and security protocols that provide invaluable online protection. Hence, if you use a proxy, others, including your internet provider, will still be able to see your activity (including your downloads and uploads). If they see you’re downloading and sharing rarbg torrents, your internet provider may throttle your connection thinking that you’re a pirate, which would drastically affect your torrenting experience. Never the less, here are some great RARBG proxy sites.

Again, use a VPN and not an unsecured RARBG proxy to stay safe.

While its name is unconventional, this website (torrent search engine) is very popular and offers tons of features that ease the pain of those looking for high-quality files. The interface is unique and interesting. The design of the website makes it more than worthwhile to use the website and find what you cannot find anywhere else.

The Pirate Bay

The Pirate Bay is perhaps the best-known torrenting website on the market today. The homepage mentions that it’s the most resilient torrenting website in the world and we can’t argue with that. While it does get blocked very frequently, it always comes back with more movies, shows, games, e-books and software than before. Additionally, the site uses Always Online technology so even when it’s down you can still access their extensive library of files. This is a great resource to use as their catalog of content is always growing and is always accessible.


ExtraTorrent is one of the better alternatives out there. It can compete with the best of them in terms of content and is definitely one of the biggest BitTorrent systems. This is a great resource to turn to if you can’t access RARBG.
