Downloading proccess.
Small file size, safe torrents, fast downloads and good UI are a few traits that make a good torrent site. Here’s a roundup of the best ones.

What defines a decent torrenting website is the quality of torrents, which includes a high number of seeders and no fake files.

An average user wants to find the torrent he or she is looking for easily and to download it quickly.

Nobody enjoys browsing a website for hours just to find that they have just downloaded a fake torrent or a virus.

For that purpose, we have put together a list of top torrent websites. However, keep in mind that due to the nature of torrenting, you should be using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to hide your IP address and avoid problems with the authorities.

Also, always use an ad blocker to prevent annoying pop-up windows from messing with your user experience.

Note: This guide does not cover the speeds of torrents on each website. Given the fact that download speed is conditioned by the number of seeders, the more seeders a file has, the less time it will take to download it.

Your TOR usage is being watched

As such, it’s not the website that is responsible for the speed but the number of seeds and peers a torrent has.
