Here Is The List Of Top 10 Best Torrent Websites Of 2018
Happy New Year Techworm readers!!! It’s that time of the year when we bring out the top 10 best torrent websites for the current year. The past year has been a torrid one for the torrent website industry where many of them were blocked by the government due to copyright issues.
In this article, we have compiled the best free torrent sites for ones who are looking to download games, movies, music, TV shows and e-books. Some of these sites may not be accessible from your location or countries maybe facing an ISP level ban. In such cases, users are suggested to use VPN (virtual private network).

Founded in 2003, The Pirate Bay (commonly abbreviated TPB) is called the “king of torrents”. TPB is an online index of digital content of mostly entertainment media, where visitors can search, download and contribute magnet links and torrent files, which facilitate peer-to-peer file sharing among users of the BitTorrent protocol. It is currently operating from its original .org domain name.
Zooqle is a newcomer to the peer-to-peer (P2P)/torrenting scene with an awesome and intuitive user interface. Zooqle does not have popups and advertisements on its site. One needs to create an account on the site (information required such as an email address, username, and password to sign up) to manage subscriptions to over 1,300 TV shows and 30,000 movies.
Launched in 2007, 1337X is another best and most popular torrent site. This site is basically based on community, where people share best torrent files for free download. It indexed in large database from many torrent sites like torrentz, torrentdb etc. Most of traffic of this site comes from UK and is liked by UK users a lot.
1337x has traditionally been a community driven torrent site but had some issues a year ago where several of the admins and moderators protested over security concerns. However, much progress and improvement has been made since with the site growing in traffic, and recently rolling out a new design as well. The link to access this website is 1337x.to.
TorrentDownloads has been around for several years. Like many other sites, it is actively blocked by ISPs in many countries. The site offers a no-nonsense index that offers torrents to millions of users each month.
Founded in 2008, RARBG is a website that provides torrent files and magnet links to enable peer-to-peer file sharing using the BitTorrent protocol. It also has one of the best-looking user interfaces of the bunch. The interface makes the site really easy to navigate and most movies and TV shows come with thumbnails and preview links so that you know what you are downloading before you actually download it. It has got a traffic of around 500K users every day. The main link to access the website is rarbg.to.
LimeTorrents has grown in popularity and has managed to gather a huge fan following after the departure of big bosses like Kickass Torrents, The Pirate Bay and Torrentz. LimeTorrent has a huge library of online content, which includes verified torrents downloads like movies, games, music, anime, TV shows, software absolutely for free. The site’s operator also launched the torrent cache iTorrents a few months ago, which is used by many other torrent search engines.
Torrentz2 is a substitute for the original Torrentz.eu site. The meta-search engine is open about the fact that it’s not related to the “real” Torrentz and places itself as a new and improved version, searching over 60 other torrent sites.
The TorrentProject or Torrent Search Project is a metasearch engine for torrent-files, which consolidates links from other popular torrent hosting pages such as ExtraTorrent. It has been suggested as an alternative for the now closed Torrentz.eu site, and its index includes over 10 million torrent files, and has been said to have a very clean, simple interface. Beyond allowing torrent files of popular films, it also carries self-produced content.
YTS.ag is another BitTorrent tracker, although slightly different from TPB and RarBG and in no way affiliated with the original YTS or YIFY group. Besides, YTS.ag’s smooth interface, there are also an impressive number of movies in high-def 720p, 1080p, and even 3D.
EZTV was a TV torrent distribution group founded in May 2005 and dissolved in April 2015, after a hostile takeover of their domains and brand by “EZCLOUD LIMITED”. The site continues to operate under new ownership (EZTV.ag) and releases its own torrents now. Due to its controversial history, a large number of torrent sites have banned these ‘new’ releases from their sites.
