Torrents are gaining a lot of popularity these days. Nowadays, almost every internet user knows what a torrent is. Well, with the growing demand for torrents, the torrent websites have also started growing to a great extent. And, hence we need to know some of the best torrent sites out there. So, here’s the list:
ThePirateBay.org, also known as TPB is a Swedish torrent website and is ranked as the 104th most popular website by Alexa. The Pirate Bay has been involved in a number of lawsuits and several other problems. But, it is undoubtedly the best one out there when it comes to torrents.
BTJunkie.org is a BitTorrent search engine. It’s one of favorite torrent sites mainly because the contents are simply amazing; its got a huge collection of torrents. It has nearly 4,000,000 active torrents and about 4,200 torrents added daily.
IsoHunt.org is yet another popular BitTorrent search engine. IsoHunt users perform over 40 million unique searches per month. The site has a user friendly design that helps you to search and view torrents with ease.
When it comes to torrent sites, Demonoid is my first preference. The reason is pretty simple- it doesn’t have junk torrents and users are banned with poor upload ratios. Sadly, it is invitation based only. Recently, Demonoid had been down for several months. It was due to a major server issue.
Torrentz.com is torrent search engine based in Canada. It indexes torrents from various major torrent sites like Mininova, Demonoid, and The Pirate Bay.
Mininova.org was one of the largest BitTorrent index sites. But, after the Dutch copyright enforcement organization BREIN started a civil procedure against Mininova, they had to delete all torrent files pointing to copyright protected material from the platform within 3 months or face damages of up to €5 million. And hence, the traffic suddenly dropped. Nevertheless it’s a good torrent website.
Monova.org, Torrentreactor.net, Btmon.com, Extratorrent.com
Out of the above list my top 3 picks are- Butjunkie, TPB and Demonoid. What are yours? Feel free to add yours in the comments.
