The Best and Most Popular Torrent Sites

Torrents are files that contain information about movies, music, video games, and programs that users share on the web through peer to peer (P2P) programs, such as uTorrent or BitTorrent.

There are a lot of torrent search engines from which you may choose, so we've compiled a list of the best and most popular ones.

The Pirate Bay

The Pirate Bay is one of the best torrent file hosting websites in the world. It has torrents under various categories of content. After being offline for some time, it is now running with its original .org domain.


Extratorrent is a host to a huge number of torrent links pointing to copyrighted content. This site is one of the best, as it is very user-friendly and discovering movies and music artists is a breeze.


YTS also known as YIFY, is one of the most popular torrent websites. It has a huge collection of movie torrents. It also has minimal advertisements and a clean interface. The team behind YTS has even released an API of their platform.


Boxopus is a third party cloud downloader. The service does charge $1.50 to use for a week or $50 for a year. However, the price is very reasonable if you plan your downloads well over the weeklong timeframe. It also has some very convenient features that some users rave about.


Rarbg is not aesthetically stellar, yet it continues to be one of the most-visited torrent websites in the world due to its quality torrents. This website is all about quality, high-resolution torrents, and places less emphasis on quantities of torrents available. It indexes torrent files for various categories like TV shows, movies, etc. Its torrent file size, however, may not be ideal for everyone, as the files tend to be large.


Torlock is different from other torrent websites in that it pays its users for uncovering fake torrents and reporting it to its community. If you are serious about your files and don’t want to waste any time, then definitely consider this site.


TorrentProject is unique in that it is a torrent search engine. It crawls on other websites and indexes torrents present there. It has become very popular recently.
