Tamilrockers is a website which involves in the reproduction of copyrighted material, including television shows, movies, music and videos. The site allows users to search and download copyrighted material with the help of magnet links and torrent files, which facilitate peer-to-peer file sharing.

There is a huge group operating undercover to upload movies of all Indian languages which includes Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, Hindi and Kannada generating a huge loss for the filmmakers. However, a few days back police have arrested suspect criminal behind this website. The cyber cell is active on this group and banned almost all of their domains extensions, but tamilrockers is coming with new domain extensions to release the movies. It is also known that people are using proxies to access tamilrockers website, but the government is working on it to ban every possible way to access tamilrockers.

It is predicted that these Pirated sites such as Tamil Rockers might have hosted their website on the cloud. It is very difficult to predict where the site is being hosted. Technically, there is a concept called a failover server. There will be a parallel and similar backup server for the original server. If the main server is down, fail over server will get automatically restore the service. These pirated sites will have a strong backup. Moreover, these sites are hosted abroad. As far as now, it is highly difficult to avoid these problems in the Internet world.
