Top 25 Best Torrent Sites With Mirrors (2018 Edition)

Notice!
  • We don’t encourage you to use the torrents to download the copyright material.  However, if you decide to do so, Please use the VPN Software and Ad-blockers to avoid being caught by ISPs as well as the LEAs using IP, DNS Leaks, and Ad-trackers.
  • This ranking is entirely independent and I neither have any affiliations with any of the below-listed websites nor dictated by the Editorial to make any changes in the ranking.

Torrenting is fun. Isn’t it? but it is quite a grey space as well on the internet due to the distribution of copyrighted content and malpractice to earn money. Just Googling will not stumble you upon the best torrent site.

There is an abundant number of torrent websites available at your disposal but there only a handful that will deliver what you were searching for ranging from a wide degree of content such as movies, music, shows, games, sports, channels and a whole lot more (don’t forget the speed limit too).

Our list of the top torrent sites will detail out which site offers the best repository depending on a specific category of content, just to make your life a little less harsh and a little more simple and entertaining at the same time.

How are we going to rate torrenting websites?

The ranking is a very tricky part of this whole review thing. We would like to make sure that ranking we produce must be authentic and help our readers to make informed decisions about the website they are going to use for torrent download. Here are the few factors that helped us in the ranking,

  • Age of Website: This doesn’t only include how long the website is being in business but also how resilient it is to Law Enforcement Agencies. The websites with malpractices won’t last much longer.
  • Niche: This is what kind of range is being offered on the menu of the website. Some torrent offers only a single niche such as movies. While others cover a wider range such as software etc.
  • Quality of Torrents: This was one of the difficult variables to measure so we took 10 samples from most downloaded torrents and tried to determine their quality. Is this really what is being offered.
  • Ads: These websites are too crazy about earning money. I don’t think that gives a second thought that either we should use this type of advertisement or not. People still gonna visit them. So, we considered it also
  • Malware: When the hunger of torrent websites is not fulfilled by the money. They move into using malware to infect their visitors and grab more money using crypto mining etc.
  • Instant Download: Well, yes mostly this appears as an ad on the torrenting websites but we really looked into it that how many different download options are being provided.
  • Mirrors: Internet Service Provides has the legal authority to check on the torrent traffics. So, mostly they pull down a specific network route to prevent. Mirroring allows the presence of alternative routes and servers.

Alongside this, we are going to provide some numbers related to the monthly million users (or daily visitors) that visit these torrenting websites so that you can be well informed of their popularity (once again, do take these figures with a grain of salt). In addition, we are going to summarize which of these best torrent websites are suited for which category so that you don’t have to waste precious time and can immediately jump in when you want to start downloading the best possible content depending on your interests.

ThePirateBay

  • Year Established: 2003
  • Number of Torrents: 4 Million
  • Tor Support: Yes
  • Best suited for: Movies, Music, Games, Software

The Pirate Bay has a long and most ugly history with the law enforcement agencies. The website was down for a couple of months after the crackdown by the LEAs to their office/facility and the owners were also caught.

The site came back with quite a similar interface and exact name. ThePirateBay still is the best site for torrents hunting users. This website is multi-niche and has torrents related to the Movies, Software, Apps, Books, and adult content.

The most of the users of this from the USA, as per statistics which is quite interesting. This website displays ads as well as mine the XMR cryptocurrency when you open this website in your browser. This can be easily prevented using the ad-blockers.

Torrentz2.eu

  • Year Established: 2016
  • Number of Torrents: 5.5 Million
  • Tor Support: Yes
  • Best Suited for: Movies, Music, Games, Software

Torrentz2.eu is very similar in appearance, nature, and functionality to the defunct torrent site you knew and loved, Torrentz. Torrentz2 is not going to become the ultimate replacement search engine of Torrentz but believe us, it is definitely trying its level best to provide you with the best possible search results.

According to the latest statistics, Torrentz2 has indexed around 5.5 million torrents from 75 domains, meaning that this number is sure to increase in the foreseeable future. Just because Torrentz is sleeping with the fishes does not mean that everything you came to know and love has died too.

After all, indexing millions of torrents and providing you with a potentially endless supply of search results is going to be a very difficult task. Just imagine how long it took Google to start indexing all of those pages; then you will realize the struggle it went into making this.

KickAssTorrents (Mirrors)

This is the clone of the original KickAss torrent website which was taken down by the authorities a few years ago. The interface is completely the same and no one can guess that this is not the original one. But because there is no official statement from the original team of Kickass torrents, we tend to believe that this is a nice alternative to The Pirate Bay with a mask of KickAss Torrents. The best thing about this TPB alternate is the way to browse the website and also the availability to see the latest torrents added to their website.

1337x

  • Year Established: 2007
  • Number of Torrents: 2.5 Million
  • Tor Support: No
  • Best Suited for: Movies, Music, Games, Software

It is not supported by the Tor but deeper research found that there are some websites serving with its name in the deep dark web. We are not sure either they are the actual mirrors or some clones of the actual website.

The user interface of the website is very simple and conventional. It is quite easy to use. You can either search your favourite torrents or browse through the categories as well. If it’s not working on the ISP, you may use the VPN service to get access to this website.

RARBG

  • Year Established: 208
  • Number of Torrents: 8 Million

Limetorrents

Limetorrents.cc is slowly creeping towards the top of the best torrent websites chain of command and regained a spot in the top ten this year. The operator of this torrenting website has also managed to launch the torrent cache iTorrents, which took place a few months back.

As stacking up on torrents go, Limetorrents.cc houses everything from movies, to TV shows to software and whatnot. Unfortunately, it is still not up to the mark as alternatives like The Pirate Bay so if there is something that is not present on the website.

Then again, occasionally you will not find older torrents on The Pirate Bay, leading you to come back to Limetorrents.cc. You might have experienced this already, but there is no such thing as a perfect torrent site and there will always be small or big complaints that you will have to listen to from your torrent-downloading clan.

iDope

  • Year Established: 2016
  • Number of Torrents: 19 Million
  • Tor Support: No
  • Best Suited for: Movies, Music, Games, Software

This website claims not to keep the record of the digital footprints of their visitors and their website don’t do what Google does. But let’s just take it as a myth. Every website tracks you to improve their services or earn from the data.

This website is lurking with annoying ads and can’t be blocked using ad-blockers. At least a few of them. So, be careful while clicking anywhere on the screen. Because this website is yet in its embryonic stage, we don’t have much about the user’s feedback on it.

Torlock

  • Year Established: 2010
  • Number of Torrents: 4.5 Million

  • Best Suited for: Movies, Music, Games, Software

If you’re in a torrent-frenzy mode, then you’ve definitely heard of ExtraTorrent. Turns out that there is a mirror website of ExtraTorrent called ExtraTorrent.cd and it houses a wide range of content ranging from movies, TV shows, software and more.

There was one very unusual thing that we found about ExtraTorrent.cd. Whenever we opened the website, our CPU usage went up to 99 percent, which was a very puzzling thing to encounter.

Still, if you don’t mind the high CPU usage for a few minutes while you’re browsing the website then you will find nearly everything you wanted to complete your entertainment adrenaline surge.

YTS.AG

  • Year Established: 2011
  • Number of Torrents: 7500+
  • Tor Support: No
  • Best Suited for: Movies

If you browse around top torrenting websites looking for the latest and greatest content, you will know that there are name variations of such websites, and this can lead to a lot of confusion for the reader.

It did, however, increase in ranking, thus being able to obscure the aforementioned website’s popularity as a result, but that will definitely incite some violence from rival sites.

Another added benefit to downloading movies from YTS is that it is able to provide you with a decent quality of movies and in less space. If you’re constrained on hard drive space, then you will happy to know that YTS.ag is going to be your guardian angel for the foreseeable future.

EZTV.AG

  • Year Established: 2015
  • Number of Torrents: 15 Million
  • Tor Support: No
  • Best Suited for: Movies, TV Series

However, with the new owners taking the operations after the takeover, EZTV currently functions as EZTV.ag and releases its own torrents for viewers wanting to get a taste of the latest and greatest lineup of movies and TV shows.


Strictly speaking, if you’re looking for a massive repository of movies and TV shows, then you have come to the right place. Its ranking is slowly growing to the top of the food chain and so is the monthly million users counter.

Unfortunately, EZTV.ag has not noted that it will start to focus on games, software, music and other categories otherwise it could take the fight to websites like The Pirate Bay. That is a battle which we will be looking forward to.

Wondering How To Download Torrents?

Torrents are nothing but files of a few kilobytes without a torrent client installed on your computer. To get the actual files you want on your local storage, you will require some of the best torrent clients for a various number of supported operating systems.

Luckily for you, we recently covered a list of the 10 popular free torrent software for three popular platforms, Windows, Mac, and Linux. For added measure, we have also included some terrific free torrent clients that support Android, because you never know when people want to move this storage to their phones.

Best Torrent Download Clients

Are downloading torrents safe anymore?

Most of you might not be aware of this but there has been a sudden increase in activity when it comes to law enforcement authorities on the shutting down of torrent download sites and arresting perpetrators. Apart from this, if you happen to be engaged in torrent downloading without some added protection, then it might become dangerous for you, but that will also depend on which country you’re inhabiting at the moment.

Most countries are already dealing with so many problems that they cannot invest the time, money and effort to curb torrent-downloading activities but developed countries are where such laws are quite strict. As a solution, the best possible way to start torrenting without potentially being detected by the authorities is by using privacy protection services in the form of VPNs.

ExpressVPN, Private Internet Access VPN, and IPVanish are some of the few services that are known to help out users in remaining anonymous when browsing best torrenting sites and downloading files, so try these out and start browsing when you switch on your machine.

Before Downloading Torrents, read this!

Before you aim to get a boatload of content installed and running on your computer, know that there are several risks involved while using BitTorrent sites. If and when you are able to, please pay for this kind of content such as purchasing games or signing up for streaming services. This is because in some countries, it is actually a crime to download torrents and it is summarized as the illegal sharing of copyrighted material.

Still, allow us to remove the confusion a bit more. P2P file sharing technology is completely legal, as many of the files traded through P2P are indeed copyrighted. However, uploading these copyrighted files will put you at risk of a civil lawsuit in countries like USA, Canada, Australia, UK, and others to be very careful in what you are getting yourself into.

Should you be worried about a potential lawsuit?

Lawsuits filed are categorized under class-action suits, meaning that they are filed against groups of users who copy and distribute copyrighted materials and will have to appear in court to answer for their crimes. However, and this bit is very important so please pay close attention, some lawsuits are also targeted towards individual users.

Now, why does such a thing happen? Perhaps the party wants to make an example out of you and the hearing of a lawsuit is sufficient to prevent an individual from ever engaging in the activity.

These P2P civil lawsuits are very real and they are very scary plus more often than not, it delivers an extreme level of stress and financial burden on the blamed individual. Since the internet is an open book right now, there are a higher number of chances of you being caught.

For example, you might not have read the terms and conditions of your Internet Service Provider but here is what they might do. They might choose to release a history of your download and upload activity to potential copyright plaintiffs. In short, the more content you download and store in your local storage, the higher the chances are that you come under the radar of copyright protection groups.

Final Words

Though The Pirate Bay might become your number one choice as best torrenting site for the downloading your favorite stuff, it is possible that there is a unique file that you might not find on this torrent website, since we stated before that not all websites are perfect. Instead, try browsing other alternatives and see if your luck starts there.

As a reminder, be very careful when downloading torrents, especially in countries where the law is merciless to such offenders. As an added form of protection please use VPNs to reduce your chances of being caught by the authorities. The last thing you would want is to get into trouble with the wrong people.

  1. I have been using Kickass for a lone time. It is really a good torrent site. And sometimes if I want to download some videos from YouTube or Facebook, I will use HD Video Converter Factory. It is an easy and quick videos/audio downloader.
