Best Torrent Sites - Top Torrent Sites 2020
Why did you make a separate category just for the best torrent sites?
Well, that’s an easy enough question to answer … because there are just so many different sites out there to choose from! Even on this site alone, which only features the torrent sites that are worth knowing about and visiting, there are still hundreds. That is why I thought it would be helpful to add an easy to find, user-friendly list of the top 10 best torrent sites in 2020. That way, if you or someone you know is ever at a loss for what torrent site to use (or if one happens to be temporarily down for some reason), you have a convenient list to reference of the best sites for torrenting on the web.
Plus, although sometimes it can be useful to browse my list of sites by specific content type (such as free indie movies, TV shows, music, software, video games, etc.), not everyone requires such fine tuning every time that they want to download torrents. Sometimes what you really need is a quick and easily accessible list of the top 10 sites for torrenting in general. Therefore, all 10 of these sites cater to multiple categories. In other words, whether you are looking for free indie movies, TV shows, or open-source software, each of these sites should be able to help you out.
I suppose, in short, the reason that I made this category of the 10 best torrent websites can be traced back to the same reason that I made Torrentsites.com to begin with … to provide you with a comprehensive and easily accessible list of the best sites on the web for finding high-quality torrents.
I know that I am not the first person in the history of the world to review torrent sites, but I am the first one to have found a way to provide the world with an easy and intuitive way to browse thorough reviews of all of the best torrent trackers, search engines, and clients so that you don’t have to spend hours trying to track them down elsewhere.
Besides, who doesn’t love a top 10 list? Of course, you might disagree with a few of the choices on my list … that is to be expected. At the end of the day, preferences are highly subjective and we like what we like. Still, though, I think that I did a pretty good job in finding what are the 10 best sites, while being as objective as possible. I feel 100% confident that you will be able to find whatever it is that you are looking for on one of these sites as efficiently, quickly, and safely as possible.
What can I find here?
On this list of the best sites in the world of P2P file sharing, you are going to be able to find only the top 10 sites that have earned their place as the best of the best torrent sites there are. This list features a blend of public torrent trackers, torrent search engines, and torrent indexes. The main takeaway, though, is that these are the 10 most credible and effective resources for downloading torrents.
What, then, makes a torrent site one of the greatest of all time? Well, it is a combination of several factors … it is a synergy of a few different factors. In the rare instance where every box gets ticked by a single website, that is when I know that I have a contender for this list on my hands.
What can I expect from these sites?
Safety first – The first thing that I always look for when evaluating a torrent indexer is safety. My number one concern when downloading torrents is whether a given site has effective safety measures in place — both to protect my privacy and my computer. One way that a torrent site is able to assuage my concerns is by offering a system of verified torrent files. Many popular torrent sites verify their files usually by having a bot crawl their index every once in a while looking for corrupted or malicious torrent files. Every site on this list contains thousands upon thousands of verified torrents.
Great site design – The next thing that you can expect from these sites is that they will be easy to use. Intuitive, user-friendly, and aesthetically pleasing site design is crucial when it comes to choosing a torrent index. In fact, I would go as far as to say that intuitive, user-friendly, and aesthetically pleasing site design is crucial when it comes to any kind of site. The best torrent sites feature a powerful search engine (ideally with advanced search functionalities), neatly organized and easy to browse search results, and plenty of torrent file info to boot.
When I download torrents, I prefer functionality. I want my torrent site to be efficient, effective, and user-friendly. Some people prefer more visually appealing site design, but I have always been more in the camp of function over form. However, if a site can combine both form and function equally, all the better! The sites featured here are, in my opinion, all excellently designed.
The power of P2P file sharing is in the peers – Whatever site you use to facilitate your torrent downloads, it is important to remember one thing: a torrent site is only as good as its community of peers. In other words, the best torrent indexes and search engines are those that make it as easy and quick as possible to download files. And, due to the very nature of torrenting itself, a download increases in speed and efficiency when more people are actively seeding it.
That is why you will want to download files from a torrent site that has the most robust, active, and thriving communities of peers. Allow me to also use this moment as an opportunity to issue a friendly reminder: always seed your torrents after they are finished downloading, please … at least for a few days if you don’t have much CPU power. The more seeding torrents in the world, the better torrenting becomes as a whole! Every site featured on this list, needless to say, tends to have a sprawling list of extremely healthy torrents thanks to vigilant seeding on behalf of its users.
Are these really the best torrents?
Well, as I said earlier, that is going to be for you to decide. These are, however, the sites that offer the best torrent download experience, in my opinion. Although I know what I am talking about (I do review torrent sites for a living, after all), I cannot promise that other torrent experts wouldn’t disagree with me on some of them.
Torrent snobs may not necessarily agree – I’m sure, for instance, that there are some seriously persnickety download connoisseurs out there who would likely only include private torrent trackers here (as they do tend to let users download hard to find files and often have seeding requirements from their users). I, on the other hand, view their exclusivity as a fatal flaw.
Private torrent trackers can be amazing, sure, if you are lucky enough to know someone who is already a registered user that can hook you up with an invite code. Otherwise, though, I do not feel as if private torrent trackers deserve a place on this best-of list; I want it to be as widely accessible as possible, which is antithetical to the nature of private trackers.
Sometimes you just need the right site for the job – Also, I tend to advise people to choose the site they use based on what they are looking to download. Which is why it is beneficial to make use of as many resources on Torrentsites.com as possible — sometimes a download requires a more niche or regional website.
If you are looking for, say, an obscure French free indie film, you might not have the best luck finding it on your favorite torrent sites. You will probably be better off checking the search results on a French site … better yet, one that specializes in free indie movies. Sometimes, for that occasional rare download, you need to be strategic with your search to find success.
Generally speaking, though, the sites that I have featured in this section are going to be effective. I only point out job-specific downloading as a way of illustrating that, in some cases, the best torrent site is going to be the one that is most likely to yield the most relevant search results, even if the site in question doesn’t have all the other features required to make it to the top 10.
