Movie4k.to 2014 Linking Website
Movie4k.to – Romania. Movie4k.to, formerly Movie2k.to, is a popular streaming linking site with a current global Alexa rank of 711 and a rank of 872 in the U.S. Movie4k.to had 11,038,451 unique visitors in August 2014, which was a 46% increase compared to August 2013, according to comScore World Wide data. The site boasts: “We are one of the biggest internet movie websites today with free movies from years ago to the current date.” The site organizes movies by genre, and lists the number of movies it links to for each genre. Currently, the site indicates it is linking to tens of thousands of copies of free movies. The site’s operator registered and advertised the availability of alternate domains for accessing the website shortly after a series of domain seizures by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2011. These alternate domains include Movie2k.com, Movie2k.me, and Movie2k.ws. In 2012, the operator posted a lengthy statement on the website in response to the shutdown of several infringing websites associated with Kino.to in Germany. In the statement, the operator proclaimed that copyright laws are outdated. Variants of the site have been subject to blocking orders in the United Kingdom, Denmark, Italy, and Malaysia. While hosted by Voxility in Romania, Movie2k.to went down in May 2013 and Movie4k.to, almost identical in design, launched just days after. Movie4k utilizes a proxy server by Akrino Inc., which is located in a European data center, however the hosting provider utilizes a British Virgin Islands contact address.
