Putlockers.com originated in the United Kingdom under the url putlocker.com. In early January 2012, the website received about 800,000 visitors a day, but after the popular website Megaupload was shut down due to copyright infringement, Putlocker began receiving approximately 1.6 million visitors a day.[4]

The website's operations officer, Adrian Petroff, found Megaupload's closure worrying, stating "who needs SOPA when a studio exec can make a wish/hit list and sites ‘voluntarily’ shut down?"[5] In March 2012, Putlocker was identified by Alfred Perry, vice president for worldwide content protection at Paramount Pictures, as one of the "top 5 rogue cyberlocker services".[6] The website's url was changed to putlocker.bz, an address which was seized by the Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit of the UK in June 2014, and was subsequently changed to putlocker.is, a domain located in Iceland.[7] Since early October 2016, the putlocker.is address, currently displays an error stating that the website's host service is inaccessible.[8] Around this time, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) reported Putlocker to the Office of the United States Trade Representative as a piracy threat.[3]

The MPAA revealed that Putlocker operates from Vietnam, and its servers are hosted by the Swiss company Private Layer.[3]Prior to its closure, putlocker.is was listed among the 250 top websites globally and the top 150 in the United States, according to Alexa data.[9] A mirror site under the address putlocker.today appeared shortly after the assumed termination of putlocker.is, and on October 17, 2016, an address under the name putlocker9.com

was reported to be available.[9]On November 2, 2016, the put locker.is address became active again, redirecting its users to the updated url putlockers.ch.[10][11]
