People who love torrenting are extremely fond of the private torrenting website. Private torrenting sites make browsing and downloading content much easier. On top of that, these sites offer longevity as compared to the publicly available torrent sites. Not everybody can become a member of these communities and that helps keep its presence under wraps. While these communities are extremely safe, it’s also true that they aren’t as huge or comprehensive as the likes of KAT, The Pirate Bay, 1337x, or Nyaa.si. Today, we’re reviewing a popular private torrent site that goes by the name of TorrentCCF.
What is TorrentCCF?
TorrentCCF or et8.org is a Chinese torrent tracker website which is an invite-only community. It is available throughout the world and contains great content. TorrentCCF has a wide range of content that you can download at a great speed primarily because of its respectable seed-to-leech ratio. Since there are only limited members, there’s no problem with uptime. Even though TorrentCCF is a Chinese website, its entire interface is set up in the English language which helps attract a global audience.
Is TorrentCCF safe?
For a torrent site to be safe for browsing, it needs to have an SSL certificate, which TorrentCCF does have. By using tools such as SEOQuake and MOZ, you can easily check the credibility of a website by gauging Domain Score (DS) and Trust Score (TS). Based on my research, TorrentCCF has a domain score of 8 and a trust score of 31 which is below average. It’s not uncommon for torrent sites to have a DS less than 15 and a TS less than 40. However, given that the site was launched in 2009 and still hasn’t managed to surpass a DS of 30 is a let-down.
What should you expect from the TorrentCCF?
There are various benefits when using a private tracking site such as TorrentCCF. Some of the points that I feel are worth sharing include:
Interactive Community – TorrentCCF is a fairly active community with over 750+ daily active users. Out of the total registered users, nearly 10% of members are active each day. Even on off days, you’ll find 300-400 members on the website. Of these members, 25-30 members are from the VIP category. There is about 143 TB of data and to date, about 2.512 PB has been downloaded from the platform.
Content Quality – Most of the content available on the platform is available in several resolutions – SD, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. You can choose various mediums such as HDTV, Blu-ray, HDTV, DVDRip, and others. As for Codec, you can choose between H.264, x264, VC-1, Xvid, Halfcd, and Rmvb. As for audio quality, you have several options such as FLAC, APE, AC3, MP3, and Ogg Vorbis.
Custom Upload – As a community member, you can request for any title you want. There’s a dedicated page, where you can complete all the fields and make a request. This page requires you to add a Torrent File, Torrent Name, Small Description, IMDb URL, NFO File, and a Description. Towards the right side, you’ll also find emojis to make the description more engaging and fun.
Forum – For any person just starting with his/her private torrent journey, understanding the platform can get overwhelming. Here’s when forums come in handy. They help you understand the problems and communicate with fellow members to solve certain problems. On TorrentCCF, you can find different sections such as Site Stuff, Newbie, Discussion, International, and Cooperation Team where you can find answers.
TorrentCCF in numbers
TorrentCCF is a small community with just 8,000 registered members. It caters to the audience from all around the world. It has about 21,000 torrents including HD content. The site has an excellent seeding/leeching ratio of 6429%.
As per the Alexa rankings, TorrentCCF is ranked #117,560 which makes it amongst the top 120,000 websites on the internet. It attracts more than 100,000 users a month and an average visit on the site lasts for more than 17 minutes. Which is confusing given that the bounce rate of the site is pretty high at 93.18%.
How to access TorrentCCF?
You can access TorrentCCF by searching for the term ‘TorrentCCF’ in your search engine. Alternatively, if you want to access the platform directly, you can use the following link: TorrentCCF. Remember, there are various extensions of the website and thus using the link is the easiest way of finding the website and downloading the content.
Before you access TorrentCCF, it’s important for you to know that protecting your IP and your device should be your priority. Most of the time when you engage in illegal content downloading, your IP can be tracked by your ISP and the local authorities. In order to avoid any trouble, it’s important that you stream anonymously when you’re accessing such platforms. That’s the reason why I recommend you use a VPN. Using a VPN will help protect your data and your identity not just from hackers but regulatory authorities as well.
Before you ask your friend or a colleague to recommend you to the mods of this platform. There are certain rules that you must know about the community. The inability to follow these rules might lead to banning. So make sure to read them carefully.
-Do not do things we forbid
-Do not spam
-Cherish your user account – Veteran User would never be deleted, Elite user would never be deleted if packed
-An unpacked account will be deleted if not logged in within a year
-Accounts with both uploaded and downloaded amount 0 will be deleted if users have not logged in
-A user found cheating would be deleted
-Possession of multiple TorrentCCF accounts will result in a ban

Please upload files with only English names
Subtitles MUST BE IN SYNC
Language Identification isn’t really needed in the Title as there’s a national flag. However, you can do so, if you feel it’s necessary
If you’re uploading subtitles for a season pack, zip/rar them all together
If you’re uploading Vobsub subtitles, zip/rar them before upload
TorrentCCF sports a substandard design. And honestly, it’s pretty similar to the low standard set by the private torrent sites around the world. With little to no images, the website is text-heavy and extremely monotonous. There are buttons, checkboxes, and links but that’s about it. Even the color choices are not up to the mark. Four dull shades of blue don’t help the site to stand out in any shape or form.
Sign-up page – Sign-up on TorrentCCF is very secure. You need to add your username, password, add captcha security code, restrict session to your IP, and choose SSL encryption option before logging in. The initial landing page has a light blue background with a form of a similar color combination.
Inner Pages – The inner pages similar to the homepage, carry little to no visual appeal. The torrent page has content placed horizontally where you’ll find details such as torrent type, title, file size, seeds, leech, and uploader information.
Content – There are more than 21,000 torrents on the site that users can access. These files are spread across a wide range of content genres. You can choose from options such as ‘Movies’, ‘Anime’, ‘Sports’, ‘Education’, ‘TV Shows’, ‘CNTV’, ‘Western’, ‘Music Videos’, ‘PC Games’, ‘PS’, ‘Xbox’, ‘Misc’, ‘HKTV’, and ‘JTV’. The category bifurcation as compared to other torrent sites is quite unusual since it includes genres, channels, and devices as well.
TorrentCCF has an excellent seeding/leeching ratio of 6429%. This allows users to download content from the site at an amazing speed. Even though the site has hosted more than 10 PB of data, it seems quite stable. Browsing around the website and downloading content is quite efficient.
Suggestions I have for TorrentCCF
While I do like most of the things on this platform, I’m not a big fan of the design. And since I understand that devs cannot make it look visually appealing given the gargantuan amount of data, I’d just suggest adding a couple of images to break the monotony.
Though TorrentCCF lacks the visual appeal, it still is a commendable torrent platform. If given a chance, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be a part of this community.
