Disclaimer & Torrent Legal Warning
We do not condone illegal sharing of copyrighted material. While P2P file sharing technology is completely legal, many of the files traded through P2P are indeed copyrighted.
Uploading these copyrighted files puts you at risk of a civil lawsuit in the USA, Canada, Australia, and the UK, at a minimum.
While these lawsuits are often class-action suits, filed against groups of users who blatantly copy and distribute copyrighted materials, some lawsuits are targeted at individual users in an attempt to make an example of them. These P2P civil lawsuits are very real and, whether or not they are successful, they are often an extreme financial and emotional burden on the defendants.
Additionally, your Internet Service Provider may choose to release a history of your download and upload activity to potential copyright plaintiffs.
In general, the more data you download and upload, the more risk you have of being sued by copyright protection groups.
The top torrent sites currently include old favorites like The Pirate Bay, as well as very popular sites like KAT, RARBG, Limetorrents, and 1337X.
That said, we know that the best torrent site is always the one that has the high-quality torrent you’re after, and with the most seeders, so a large and thorough list of torrent sites, like you will find in the table below, is always a welcome resource to find.
Please know that we do not condone the illegal sharing of copyrighted files! See our full disclaimer and warning for new torrent users at the bottom of this page.
The 10 Best Torrent Sites: June 2018
Below is a big list of torrent sites, more or less in the order that we prefer to search from. If you’re new to torrents, don’t forget that you’ll need a torrent client to get these files! We have a list of the Best Torrent Downloader Software if you’re interested. Hook it all up to a smart TV, grab the popcorn and get comfy.
Note: All torrent sites in this table are working unless otherwise noted, at least as of the last update to this page. Let us know if we need to add or subtract a listing.
- Torrent SiteWhat We Like The Pirate Bay This site is a classic! TPB It has been around in one incarnation or another for a long time and the torrents are, and have always been, trusted here.
- RARBG This torrent site is for P2P enthusiasts. It’s full of quality, high-resolution torrents. It’s about quality here, not quantity.
- 1337X If you’re after older or more obscure torrents, 1337X might be for you. Their torrent database isn’t nearly as large as some others, but it might have just what you’re after.
- ExtraTorrent Another super popular source for torrents. This site has come and gone but lives here… for now.
- TorrentDownloads We love the super straightforward torrent detail page at TorrentDownloads. That would be reason enough to give this one a try but the big database and high quality of torrents make it a great choice.
- limetorrents.cc You don’t want to miss this site in your torrent search. Users report the size of their database is impressive and the frequency of legitimate files is enough to keep them coming back.
- YTS.AM Frequently written off as a TIFY/YTS impersonator soon after launch, most users find YTS.AG torrents to be high quality and legit.
- Torrentz2 This is like a super torrent index, searching for torrents across dozens of other torrent sites. You can see the complete list in their sites in our index page.
- KAT This is the official site! Don’t be tricked by mirrors of the same name.
- Torlock This is the “no fake torrent” site you’ve been waiting for. The site actually pays its users $1 per fake torrent they find.
- EZTV You won’t find every torrent you’re after here, but users say the quality of the torrents you do find is consistently good.
- Demonoid The Demonoid site has been serving up torrents since 2003 as a number of different domains. This is a private membership community so you’ll need an invite to join. Watch out for the aggressive ads here.
- BTScene A clean interface and relative lack of annoying advertising make BTScene one of our favorites.
- Torrents.me This meta torrent site isn’t too special among all the others but we love the amazing dashboard on their home page. If you’re a data nerd and a torrent fan, you’ll appreciate what they’ve done.
- iDope The iDope torrent site is worth mentioning if only for its innovative iDope Android app. P2P file sharing right from your smartphone or tablet!
- Monova A nice, clean design is reason enough to spend time here. Advertising can be an issue at times but if you can get over that, it’s a great torrent site.
- Toorgle This is another “meta” torrent search engine, pulling in the databases from over 450 torrent sites into one place.
- Seedpeer With a sizable database of torrents, Seedpeer is and always has been a great place to search. The interface isn’t as nice as some others, but it’s still a very usable site.
- TorrentFunk This is a pretty popular torrent site, in no small part due to its “verified” status indication, as well as user .
- YourBittorrent The clean interface is a big reason to try this torrent searcher… especially if you’re new to BitTorrent.
- Zooqle This is another torrent site you don’t want to skip in your search. Users love the size of their database and the frequency of legitimate files.
There are a number of popular non-English torrent sites that exist as well, like 7tor, RuTracker, Pirateiro, Nyaa.si, and ArenaBG. They’ll be harder to use for English-only downloaders but could have that one file you’re after.
