Torrent is still one of the most widely used tool to share media over the Internet. But torrents in the past year has suffered some serious legal issues mainly due to piracy report by copyright owners. In 2016, people even said “Torrent is dead” which means no more piracy. But this folks know their way out. One goes down, the other rises. At the beginning of 2017, 2 major torrent providing sites have been shut down : Kickass Torrent and the legendary torrent search engine, Torrentz.eu. Most people don’t even know about the new Torrent websites. So, today I’m here with a list of Best Torrent websites of 2017.
Even though we don’t want piracy, at some time in our life, everyone might have used Torrent websites. Because spending money on every other digital product isn’t a common man’s fate. Finding the best torrent sites isn’t easy as most of the Torrent sites are not indexed in Google. So, if you search for torrent sites, you will not see all the torrent sites in the search results.
Looking back in 2016, where torrent had many issues. This year in 2017, reputed torrent websites like ThePirateBay & new comers like Torrentz2 have much better & improved engines as compared to the old ones. Especially the new comer, Torrent2.eu has much the exact same design as its predecessor but much better rankings algorithm which provides much efficient results as compared to the old one.
We in no manner promote piracy. This article is just for educational purpose.
Enough of past talks, let’s jump on the list of torrent websites. However, many proxy sites are available but we are not including them here. The top places on the list of 2016 was quickly filled by ThePirateBay.
The Top 10 best torrent sites of 2017
1The Pirate Bay
The most apparent site on this list is, The Pirate Bay. This is one of the oldest sites and is the number 1 torrent provider operating in its .org domain. Though the past year has been not so good for The Pirate Bay, it still managed to hang on us. It provides torrents based on category, mostly TV-shows, videos, games. One thing the best thing about this site is, it allows you to do searches in particular category. The Interface is perfectly for anyone who’s not familiar with Torrents.
PirrateBay surely knows how to keep things clean & make the entire site user friendly. This site has surely faced same real bad issues with different governments but I guess they know their way out.
After the termination of the legendary torrent site, Torrentz.eu. Almost everyone believed that the end of Torrent is near. But our new friends had something else in their mind. No doubt, Torrent2.eu looks the exact same as its predecessor & has almost the same features. But things aren’t the same. You can say this as, the Version 2 which packs few improvements. Unlike the previous site, now site searches 60 different torrent websites. Yes, you read it right. 60!
Extra torrent has been developing itself for the past few years. They have a vast collection of torrents. And according to its founder, they have been able to sustain themselves due to its active community. They are also home for the ETTV and ETRG groups. This Torrent website has its own forum with very high number of active user base. You can contact members & even request them for files.
1337x has been improved since last year when many users complained about its security. It also has a dedicated portal to movies and TV-shows torrent which makes it dear to many users. The site has less torrent indexes.
Torrentproject is appearing the top 10 for the first time. It uses DHT to find content and has a database of over 10 million torrents. It is one of those few torrent websites with little no annoying Ads & popups with adult content. I believe Torrent Project is trying to reach greater heights by focusing more on user experience. The search page looks very much like a Google search which is neat & simple.
The torrent searches from different websites inclusing Thepiratebay and more than 300 other torrent sites. With few more improvements, I believe this could be the best torrent search engine site of all.
Rarbg is majorly a video and TV-show provider. They have won hearts of millions of users since its release in 2008. But it came into light around 2010, when it entered the top 10 list. Just like every other website, Rarbg, has also faced legal issues but managed to be alive.
Yts.ag is not all related to the Yify group, but has been managed to create its own place on the internet. Many torrent sites have been opposing the use of “brand’s name” and protesting to shut down the site. YTS is a video dedicated Torrent website which the best video quality in minimum size possible.
Torrentdownloads has been actively blocked by many ISPs like any other torrent site. It provides really great search engine to search torrents for millions of users each month. It provides pretty decent search results for the query.
LimeTorrents has come and gone from the top 10 list every passing year but still one of the best provider of torrents around the world.
EZTV.AG has been around for a long time but due to its security, its been neglected. It releases its own content but is generally banned on some other sites due to its controversial history. I have personally never used this as the Interface doesn’t look pleasing at all. Everything looks a complete mess.
Torrents are still considered to be illegal almost everywhere in the world as its one of the major promoter of piracy. But it has penetrated so deep into the internet that it is almost never leaving.
