YourBittorrent is one of the initial torrent website of the world wide web which is known as mybitorrent in 2003. Yourbittorrent is born out of split between the founders of mybittorrent.com. As of 2017 this has been doing great. It collects torrents automatically from different websites, stores them, analyzes them and verifies them. It has around 10 million torrents with pretty sleek design. The home page just list the top 50 torrents and all torrents are divided into 10 main categories and hundreds of sub categories. It has been caught on of the rare Domain kidnapping by its registrar. Currently it is blocked in UK, russia and India on copyright violation grounds.
With the increasing popularity for not only torrenting sites but also music-sharing sites, Weblagu leaves its mark as one of the most updated databases out there that both brings users to a quick download as well as user-friendly time visiting the site.
With a very simple built, the site has a lot more to offer than an OKAY first impression. First off, the popular chart list is helpful for any music addict who prefers listening and trying out new songs, and Weblagu provides those in a matter of days, or less, hours. The recent searches part, although hard to notice, informs users of current and recent downloads and searches, which can be very helpful to understand the targeted audience and the region of visitors that prefer this site. The popularity of the site increases daily through their Facebook page that has almost 900,000 likes, suggesting a much bigger visitor queue. Searching for songs is made extremely easy by Weblagu as there are word fillers to help users find content, and even if searches are vague, the results are brought up quickly and nicely so that anyone can look through. With numerous music-sharing sites out there, one can always find a negative side like ads or redirecting pages and surveys, but Weblagu offers direct downloads through a very responsive and fast server.
As activities of governments to block file-sharing sites continue, Weblagu seems little affected by this but nonetheless one should tread carefully into sites that look compromising, though needless to say Weblagu is far from a site that looks compromising.
As part of the file sharing community, TorrentR offers similar activities to other file-sharing sites non-stop. It is becoming an increasingly popular torrent site due to its updated content and fast upload time. Coincidentally, it is of similar looks to the famous Kick-Ass Torrents site.
Functional torrenting sites are considered so due to their providing of quick and healthy torrents for any user and TorrentR excels in this area. The optional categories placed just below the search bar are extremely helpful in allowing visitors to separate content especially in large torrenting databases such as this one. Similarly, the home page consists of newest torrents for movies, TV-shows, music, games, and applications that allow users a quick glance into the latest uploads in case they’re here just for that. A very helpful feature in this case is the health bar next to each torrent that automatically takes into consideration the seed/leech ratio so that a user doesn’t need to download a torrent to check its speed. Further into the search results area, users can again categorize torrents not only by popularity but also by uploaded date and seed/leech number, size, and health. Users should always show caution when using torrent sites as countries like the UK almost always block torrent sites as soon as they hit the web.
Having a similar built to the famous KAT site, TorrentR has a nice and appealing look and unlike some sites that try to sell adds, this one shows little or none. On a final note, although file-sharing sites are also restricted in countries like UK, Netherlands, and even Germany and Denmark, some of them escape the restrictions are become available for short periods of time, so hurry up.
Torrentus is unlike most Torrenting sites in that it provides a gathering of all torrent databases into one for easier viewing. It is exceptionally updated to cater to every user needs without the need to search individual torrent sites. It further provides thousands of active and verified torrents that are very easy to find.
The search box is perhaps the most important feature of the site as it is a rather unified search bar that runs any query through over 46 Torrent databases. It is well-known that functionality-wise this is a top notch file sharing site and adding to that the fact that torrents are safe to download as well as upload, this makes it worth your time. The 10 main categories below the search bar greatly help narrowing your searches, and further increase the efficiency of finding torrents through the subcategories represented in each category through a simple mouse hovering. Upon completing a search, the results are able to be laid out in the category of size, seed, leech, and age, and unlike some sites that don’t make this feature available; Torrentus makes it very easy to use and highly popular to click. Adding to the fact that it is still only a site to redirect to actual torrents, it still manages to show the seeds for each torrent and thus making it easy for the user to click it right then and there instead of checking from which torrent site the file is coming. Users can further make use of commenting and up voting or down voting torrents without the necessity of registering a user. Overall this is one of the best and most user-friendly torrent sites I have come across, with the sole aim of satisfying its large visitor base.
Design and Suggestions
Upon visiting the homepage, I am brought to a very nice looking design and especially cute logo whereas further down there’s torrent news in relation to cyber security issues. The design is very well coded and the site is strong in its structure; there are no ads and there are no annoying banners or links to ask for premium downloads. I have no suggestion as I cannot see how to better improve this torrent site. Well done.
AxxoMovies is a long-standing file sharing site through torrent databases known to be uploaded at their premium and best quality upon release. Axxo, namely the owner of the AxxoMovies as well as the Axxo torrent uploads is one of the most famous uploaders you may have seen on popular sites such as Kick-Ass, or former PTB.
The site is highly functional and dedicated to providing only the best quality of movies, and only movies. Since the staff is focused only on movies, it further means they are doing a good job at providing any movie links. The site is one of the most visited by torrent fans and veterans of torrent downloading who happen to also be loyal downloaders of specific Axxo torrents. The main page directly brings forward all the options you will ever need in finding movies; that includes 12 categories of movies you may search through and a very useful ‘How to Download’ button that takes the user to instructions on downloading torrents. Rarely does a site have such a category to help users find their way, but it is nonetheless a very useful feature as the trends of file sharing grow day by day. First-time users as well as returning ones will find it extremely easy to search for movies which get listed in a scrolling thumbnail mode for better viewing. Below every movie is the button to further details that takes you to the download of either the torrent or the direct magnet link. On the right are most downloaded movies to date that help users’ find popular content and recent good movies.
Design and Suggestions
The design is rather straightforward, while enabling easy viewing of files and making it less painful on the eyes due to the simplistic yet sufficient design. I would yet add a few changes, such as adding the download options at the front of the results instead of having to click once to take you to the movie details. Although for users who like to view more details, that button is also worth it as it provides an IMDb link as well as the trailer. I would further improve the functionality by also adding a short movie description without needing to click on the IMDb link. Overall this is a highly rich database of movies and I strongly recommend using it for your movie needs.
Icefilms is a video streaming site that contains different TV shows, movies, and other video based contents. The website contains an extensive amount of old and new TV shows with a large selection of Movies. Most of the TV shows and Movies are available in HD quality at the website. Aside from the content the website has a very dark and dreary theme that compromises the user’s experience and creates confusion. In terms of content, the website has a lot of TV shows and movies but it does not contain all the latest shows that the users may be after.
Perhaps the weakest aspect of this website is how it looks. With a dark background and blue font on top of that it can be very difficult to read and navigate through the website. The website does contain categories for different content and also gives the users a list of popular shows and movies but does not contain posters for movies or shows upon initial search and the users have to open the links in order to see the details of the show. While searching for different movies the website only lists the most popular movies based on the hints and does not categorize them based on the genre or year of release. All of these weaknesses contribute an average experience that otherwise could have been great. In terms of content, Icefilms has a very large collection of old shows and movies but it fails to deliver most of the modern TV shows and movies. Overall, having to click through links as well as having to download codecs greatly compromise a users’ security as well as makes the doubtful of the sites intentions.
Design and Suggestions
The site navigation is difficult due to the weak design and on top of that users also need to install a codec in order to properly view the site and enjoy all its functionalities that are very few to begin with. When trying to watch a movies or TV shows the users have to go through multiple links in order to finally reach the video stream. The streaming quality is also a bit slow that further hampers the experience. Overall the website fails to live up to the expectation and delivers a very mediocre and sometimes confusing experience. I would suggest a complete redesign of the website, but first make the content easily viewable and downloadable.
Torrentbit.net is a torrent hosting site that provides access to different torrent related content on the web. The website has a very clean and simple design that makes it easier for the users to search different content that they want. Everything is nicely divided in categories that simplify the navigation around the website. Some of the salient features of the website remain to be analyzed below.
Upon the first visit, the user is greeted with the Home Page that contains a basic outline of the website, with sorted categories and the most downloaded torrents listed in each category. On the left side of the page users can find the general categories such as Movies, Music, Anime, Books and several others. Content-wise the site looks loaded on files. The Uploading feature of the website is only available to the registered members, which adds a sort of security against false uploads and links that waste a user’s time. All the popular torrents are sorted categorically, thus making it easier for the users to find what they are looking for. In addition to easier navigation the site also contains a list of popular searches that can be used as a recommendation list if the user is uncertain about the movie or the type of music that they are looking for. Overall the website has a nice interface and some nifty features that make it ideal for the users searching for different torrent related content. A nice feature of the site is brought on by the fact that there aren’t any ads and banners to clutter the whole website and make it hard to find what you are looking for. Furthermore, this works equally with or without an AdBlock, allowing any user to find the site easy to use and without hesitating to return to it. Overall this is a highly functional site that should definitely gain more popularity due to its simplicity and the idea that it is solely used for torrenting and not personalized gains.
Design and Suggestions
Talking about the theme, the website has a very simplistic looking web page design that fails to draw the attention of users towards it. The gold and white colors are prominent in the website, giving it a certain appeal. The website is nicely sorted, but it lacks the wow factor that would make the users stay on the page for a long time. To conclude, comparing with other Torrenting sites, this is one of the few I have seen that doesn’t raise any red flags as well as provide a user-friendly interface. I would highly suggest a bit of a color change so that the golden is not as dominant and hurtful to the eyes
Tokyo Toshokan is a Japanese torrent directory that claims to contain all the latest Japanese content. Upon first visit, the website does not contain much at its welcome page other than a few links to donate or search torrents and a search bar. The website has a very minimal look with white background and basic font. Tokyo Toshokan does not contain many redeeming qualities that can help it to stand apart from the rest of the competition in the torrent category.
In the functionality department the website does not contain any categories or lists of the most searched content, neither does it contain any kind of sitemap that can guide the users to find the content that they desire. The homepage of the website contains a few links that the visitors can use to upload, donate or search torrents; other than that there are no unique features that are worth discussing. A distinguishing quality that TokyoTosho contains is being centered specifically towards Japanese content, but an in-depth analysis reveals that the website lacks any concrete content Japanese or otherwise. Most of the search result return adult or unrelated content that the searched words or phrase has no association to, the website looks very thin and does not contain much features or contents that could justify its claim to be one of the few sites that hold premium Japanese content. In addition to lacking any good content the website lacks any structure that would enable the users to reach the particular link or content that they desire, even the search bar fails to fulfill its function. The only redeeming quality that the website has is it separately categorizes different content. The users would easily be able to distinguish whether their desired content is in the search results or not. Other than that there is not much that this website has to offer.
Design and Suggestions
The website fails to capture the attention of the audience and visitors due to its very bland and minimalistic page. Regardless of the design, the torrent site yet fails to answer the user needs and is completely outdated. In short, what is the design worth, if anything, when the website does not deliver what it is supposed to? I highly recommend that the site focus on delivering content, being that they aim to bring Japanese media content at a premium quality.
One of the most fascinating facts about the German population is that they love to dub any movie to their own language, including even in their most famous cinemas. As a site that provides every single movie dubbed in the German language, it is by far one of the best sites out there for this specific purpose. Movie buffs who do not understand German, stop reading right now. The rest of you follow me.
In a short sentence, Kinox.To provides everything a user needs in order to watch movies in the German language. From the home page to the last page, the site provides numerous instructions on how to download movies, explains their policies, and provides further items that will please even the most uninstructed user that is using a file sharing site for the first time. Features of the site worth noting are the tools and the playlists categories. The Tools category immediately provides the user with any movie-related inquiry application-wise, starting with adobe flash and ending with various movie players; this greatly reduces any bothersome feelings for those who are not quite sure how to start their file sharing experience. The Playlist category is a similar category as seen in IMDb where a user or staff creates a watch list of movies based on a theme or title, but this feature offers a lot more: It offers a more specific list of movies, ordered from first to last, while offering to stream them completely for free and in a sequential order. In short, for those who enjoy movies while hate wasting their time, this feature allows you to choose any genre or theme while all you have to do is grab the popcorn. A helpful feature is also the Genre List that obviously allows the selection of movies for easier finding based on your genre liking, as well as the selection based on newest, most popular, or the kind of show and movie to choose from. With this site, I can safely say that any German-speaking movie buff is lucky to stumble across it while making it difficult for them to ever quit.
Design and Suggestions
The thing that applauds the site the most is the fact that the top right corner offers 4 different color themes to view the site from, making it an interesting feature in the place of where a possible language selection category could have been. Overall the design is fairly good and everything is functional to the dot, leaving me with a good impression of the German techniques of file sharing sites. I would recommend a similar website to provide movies at their original language as it would become a very popular site indeed.
A very useful BitTorrent site especially for new users is SevenTorrents. It is a good source of fast and new movie files while it receives over half a million visitors monthly. The goal here is to gather the highest quality of recently released movies and put them together in one spot, and looking at the database, they are achieving this successfully.
Perhaps one of the most functional sites I have seen In terms of providing useful information to users. So if you’re a first-time user this wouldn’t be a bad place to start. You are well informed about the site statistics, as well as instructions on certain methods that will make your BitTorrent life easier, such as how to block popups, use your own downloads profile, etc. Since almost all sites provide categories of movies, I will focus more on what is not on other sites. Specifically, the user can differentiate between p2p groups, which are responsible for most of the movie uploads, starting with YIFY, RARBG, Juggs, etc. Instead of visiting their sites separately, you may just categorize based on uploads as they are exactly the same uploads; only the links appear on this website for easy access. Movies are laid out extremely well and in a very informative way, while you can also pick right away the definition of the movie and then just download it. Users are also informed of the recent releases and popular movies as well as how many torrents exist for each of them without the need to click and find out or be disappointed that there aren’t any torrents.
Design & Suggestions
The site is designed perfectly to reveal any information you want without having to be directed to another page, and frankly, that is a very rare feature that not many websites possess. I would suggest a small improvement that also allowed listed viewings of torrents without the need to scroll a lot, as well as provide seed and leech information right on the side of the listed torrents. Users can gain a lot by this feature when they are just looking for a new movie that is also popularly viewed.
As far as BitTorrent databases go, Torrent.CD is pretty rich in content, offering the usual movies and TV-shows, but also quite a large database of Anime. The site seems more personalized for some types of visitors due to its content and related searches, such as Russian, Korean, and Japanese, and is overall a free torrent site. Although it is full of content, some recent shows, movies, anime tend to be missing but that is due to a lesser popularity and thus less peers to upload torrents.
The website seems very user-friendly in its maneuverability and what makes searching easier is the side box of categories as well as subcategories that help narrow your search greatly. This is an efficient tool when dealing with a large database such as this sites’. The main categories in the home page allow for easier viewing of current and popular movies, TV-Shows, Anime, Adult films etc. Another side box that is helpful is just below the categories box and it provides links to external sources of BitTorrent databases which can help the user find content that they otherwise can’t find here. The fans and loyal visitors can make use of that category by visiting other databases that the current site cooperates with. Furthermore as a free torrent site, it does not offer annoying popups that some sites tend to, therefore making it much more attractive to visit.
Design and Suggestions
The centered width design makes the site look much neater and professional, while the animations next to certain names make it very friendly. The download torrent button next to torrents doesn’t seem to work, and neither do the categories of dates, seeds, or leeches. I would highly recommend that more functionality is added to the buttons that exist.
Btloft obviously stands for BitTorrent Loft and upon visiting the site, it seems like a pretty old and left out loft. Although the site is fairly updated, it is not fully updated with the recent 2015 shows that are coming out like Orange is the New Black, or even Game of Thrones. Any site that doesn’t have the latest GoTh episodes is outdated in my opinion.
The site is okay functional, it provides with a search bar right away for users to find content, as well as adds a lot of torrents daily, but somehow not the popular ones. Like some other torrent sites, the user cannot effectively search for torrents because they cannot rank torrents by seeds, date, or size. The browse category is perhaps the only part of the site that actually helps in categorizing between shows, movies, music, etc. But even then, the user will have a bad time finding a specific torrent they want to download. The site is more or less incomplete in its code; the Registration page leads nowhere, so it hasn’t been coded yet, and the same goes for the Stats page. The seed/leech information is also not well updated and the overall speed of torrents is pretty low.
Design & Suggestions
It would be okay to talk about the design except that there is no point when the site doesn’t provide what it is made to: good torrents. I find the download torrent button helpful, but again, it doesn’t matter if the site is outdated. The only suggestions would be to update to the latest contents and then fix the functionality in being able to categorize torrents as well as show better information about them.
The increasing number of BitTorrent sites leaves little desire to look for new ones, especially when the popular ones like Kick-Ass Torrents or the former popular PirateBay exist. With that in mind, other torrent sites become less useful with the exception that they might have certain files that other sites do not provide.
Functionality The search bar is placed correctly at the top and it does not become an obstacle when the window is minimized while visiting the site. The main and only category that is available on the front page is the Today’s TOP torrents which in my personal opinion are hardly useful when dealing with a not-so-popular torrent site. Just below the Today’s TOP category are ‘recent searches’ tags that leave me wondering about the tags at the top. Are they both recent searches, and if yes, why would you separate them in an unappealing way? Also, upon searching any query, the result doesn’t allow for categorical listing by seeds or size or anything like that, and that makes this site pretty useless in terms of efficiency in finding torrents. Overall the site seems to be updated but the seed/leech information seem to be wrong as they mostly display 0/0 while the torrent loads very fast anyway. Design & Suggestions From the first look it can be seen that this site is coded with little or no experience in HTML and a lot of code copying. The whole content is left-sided which is why the search bar is always visible when you reduce the screen size. I would highly recommend making the content centered and making the categories clickable for easier viewing, as this would require very basic HTML and PHP coding skills.
Upon visiting the site of Vertor.eu, the first impression it leaves me is that the logo looks pretty decent, the name actually stands for ‘verified torrents’ which is pretty meaningful. Then naturally, the next thing that catches my eye are the first displayed torrents of 2014, which to my expectations, it should be the recent torrents of 2015. Ironically enough, the torrents of 2014 actually ARE the recent torrents.
Like any torrent site, design is not necessarily a must-have, as long as the site supports good ‘verified torrents’, However, it really hurts my eye seeing that every torrent name is underlined as it makes me feel like it’s an important torrent, but they can’t all be possibly important. Can they? Overall, like I said, the design is okay for a torrent site so no harm there but I would still add perhaps a box of ‘recent torrents’, or just give less space to the main box of torrent lists as it is taking all the space away no matter how wide my screen is.
Again, with emphasis on the word ‘ironic’, the small buttons next to the torrent names are supposed to give extra torrent information like if it’s verified or who uploaded it, but funnily enough all torrents seem to have been uploaded by ‘user’. Next, the Health bar of the torrent is about 80% of the way full with an orange/brownish color, what does that mean? If the bar is at 0% is the torrent dead? Moving on, I can’t even click the tab to rank torrents by date, size, or seeds unless I am at the search results, and even then, when I click on seeds, it still ranks them randomly.
Besides the obvious fact that your torrent side should be always updated, you may want to add a little button that takes you to the magnet link without having to download the file. Furthermore, why even bother adding the ‘direct link’ or ‘free download link’ when everyone knows it will never happen. Overall, I would go on with suggestions, but what is the point really when your ranking doesn’t work and your recent torrents are of 2014?
Update: As of May 2017 vertor is dead
One of the most recent trends in web-building and design that’s making a huge comeback since the last decade is the wide-width style of web design. What this design basically does it displays the content as wide as the browser’s width can support, so if your browser’s viewing the page it extends from end to end, giving it an appealing look while also adding to the simplicity of the web-site.
Unfortunately for TorrentExpress, I am not sure what they were aiming at with designs half-way done. Perhaps my first critique upon visiting the site is the fact that I simply cannot use it in dual screen with another page because half the content is lost. Now, as an avid fan of multitasking, and I’m sure I am not alone in this, it is inconvenient for me to devote time to a simple torrent search.
Functionality When did anyone ever, in their lifetime, click on the first torrent they see related to their search query? I am hoping the answer is never because for myself, I have to find the best ratio of seeds/size and in most torrent sites it is just a small ‘seeds’ button that rearranges everything to your desires. In this case, however, not only is the torrent site outdated, it does not even have ranking by seeds or size even if I want to search for a movie to download. Suggestions First off, design the site properly so that when it is minimized at least it shows a new search bar at the top, or even add an app-like button for drop-down lists. Secondly, if you are going to keep the torrent site looking this simple, at least make every search query result in a ranking of best to worst seeds, and if that is too much to ask, at least add the button for the user to click.
RarBg is one of the top torrent release group along with yts. They are a bulgarian tracker which provides tracking services for torrents. Most of the torrents are of movies and tv shows.

IT almost acts like a butler pruning and serving you the best of torrents. They also have a tv series section where you can sift through numerous tv shows in a jiffy and download high quality videos. The main advantage is its disadvantage though. It has only movies and torrents :(. But it is best at what it does 😀
Founded in 2004 Torrrents.to combines all torrent meta search engines into a single search bar. It does not have any index or data about torrents. It relies on other torrent meta search engines.

This is one of the sites which needs no introduction. It has been one of the most popular websites for getting your movies, tv series and what not.. There have been long running blockades on the piratebay in many countries and schools. Many glype proxies allow you access the piratebay but, they donot allow you to click on magnet links, which renders, the piratebay unusable. But these proxies allow you to access the piratebay without any problems!! It has been raided by police twice. It has been down many times. But, people still remember it even now. TPB standsout from other torrents sites because they never comply with takedown notices.
