So, before discussing about best torrent sites, let’s discuss some basic knowledge about what is torrent basically. Recently, We have also shared best ultrabook for entertainment.
What is a torrent?
Torrenting is an internet P2P (peer to peer) file sharing technology that makes file sharing easier and faster.This awesome technology works by downloading the data from various sources (computers) instead of just one. Bram Cohen, a programmer of python-language, developed this technology in 2001.
In torrent technology a computer who shares a file with others, (source) is called a seeder and a user who downloads it is called a peer or leecher. What happens is that the file is broken down into several small pieces.When a peer clicks the “Download” button , he/she is actually connected to hundreds or thousands of computers over the internet. Each small part of the file is then downloaded from the seeder which will give the fastest download (At most times, from other seeders which are geographically nearer).If this seeder gets inactive (say, the source stopped sharing) the job is automatically shifted to the next computer.
For years this has been the popular and easiest way of sharing all kinds of files over the internet. Data says that Torrent sites are responsible for 3.36% of total file sharing bandwidth worldwide.
Recently, we have also shared free mp3 download sites.
Advantages of Torrent:
So, before discussing about best torrent sites.Let me list out the advantages of Torrent over other file-sharing technologies.
- Torrents ensure quality. Nobody will download a torrent if users claim that the file is not what it is supposed to be. Moreover if you see a torrent with a lot of downloads, it is a sure bet that the file is exactly what it is supposed to be. This makes the technology highly efficient and reliable
- This system ensures that the files do not have malwares or other programs that cause harm in them. If such a file is included in the torrent , the torrent will be flagged by unhappy users as soon as it is uploaded, and no one will download it again
- Even if one source is disconnected , the download still continues from the next source
- Since the file is broken to pieces, we can pause a download and still resume it without any issues even after weeks.
- The technology is so efficient that even a computer with low configuration can easily download the files
- Users are able to download or upload large files in less time
- High Download speed
- Torrent clients urges users to seed (upload) after downloading and it decreases the speed of users who are only downloading and not uploading
But like all good things there is a bad side to this too. Torrents are today the primary mode of transferring pirated softwares, movies, music etc . Over the years torrent technology has become a tool for piracy and copyright infringement. Nevertheless it is loved and worshipped by students, movie lovers and poor people who can’t afford original version of softwares all over the globe. Torrents made it easy for people to get almost anything that has a soft version for free. This has made torrents the worst nightmare for government authorities and copyright authorities.
