20 Best Torrent Sites (Public and Private) in February 2021

BitTorrent is a network that demands a lot of privacy and protection, also the files that are being shared may be subject to copyright, therefore finding the right file can be a task.

There are a few websites that list popular torrents for you to download by most of them have unreliable, fake torrents. And many torrents are not available on many websites too.

So we took a poll of power torrent users and listed all the popular torrents websites to vote for.

After a successful poll, we have curated a list of reliable, and popular torrent sites to get the best torrent files available.

This is a general list of torrent sites, some are popular for movies, and some for other torrents like games, tv shows, etc.

These torrent sites were measured according to the following categories:

Content Library

One of the most important factors, this category is the variety and availability of torrent files. Like is a specializing website for movie torrents, tv shows, games, software or they are general sites that have all types of torrents.

Visitors in a Month

More Visitors means more trust and better torrents. If a site is popular among BitTorrent users then it has to be reliable and trusted. So this is also a popular category to judge the sites by.

Mirror

Mirrors are identical sites that are used when the original site is not available. More mirror site means that you can access the website when you want to.

Torrent Ratio

A better seeder to leecher ratio means better quality of torrent files. This ratio shows that a particular file has been used more than once and is reliable.

So now that we are clear on what measures are we going to rank the popular websites for downloading torrents, let me tell you one more thing.

We have divided the websites into two lists of best torrents. One of the public torrent sites, meaning websites that provide you torrents for free.

And another of private torrents, which can cost you a few bucks to get access to.

From our personal experience, it is better to get your files from a private torrent site. They have better torrents and a good ratio for any file.

If you are using public sites then your ISP can see your moves. They can track and pinpoint you in case if something goes wrong. So it is best to access torrent sites by using a VPN or a remote server a.k.a. a Seedbox.


What is a Seedbox?

Seedbox is a remote server that you can access from your device. It stores information for you and also these servers are placed in locations with more internet freedom. Therefore, your server is safe and your moves are hidden from your ISP.

For example, you are adding a torrent to your seedbox. So what you did was downloaded a torrent to your remote server and then to your device. But according to your ISP, you were just interacting with a normal server.


Why do I need a Seedbox?

These seedboxes come with a high internet speed of seeding your torrents and pre-configured apps to make your media servers.

You can even stream movies or tv shows directly from your seedbox using applications like Plex and emby. Often, Seedboxes come with an OpenVPN which will hide your IP address under the Seedbox’s IP address. Thus helping you stay secure.

So if you are a power torrent user or even starting to use BitTorrent network then Seedbox is a technology you must look into.
