Searching for Top Torrent Sites 2017? Let me start by saying a bit about torrenting technology.
Torrenting technology, developed by Bram Cohen, an expert in Python programming language in 2001, is an internet peer to peer (P2P) technology that is aimed at making sharing files over the web faster and easier.
It revolutionised the internet in a lot of ways. Not only did it make file sharing easier and quicker, but it also opened a lot of doors to content piracy and made virtually every common internet user a criminal, technically speaking. People today rely a lot on torrent websites to download pirated software, movies, music and other data. It is said that torrent platforms are currently responsible for 3.36% of total file sharing bandwidth of the whole world.
The beauty about torrenting technology is that none of the files that are shared is actually hosted on any web server. A user of the technology receives the file from other users who has already downloaded it as several small packets. The user who is downloading is called a peer (or a leecher), and the user who is providing the packet (source) is called a seeder. The torrent clients (like µTorrent), which are software’s used to download from torrents ensure that every peer is also a seeder. It is, in fact, an accepted norm, or an unwritten rule if you would, among torrent users that the upload/download ratio should be kept equal to or more than 1.00 so that in theory, a torrent once uploaded never dies. This hardly happens as most people never maintains the ratio due to the limits of internet connectivities. Top Torrent Sites for Free Download 2017
