Best Torrent Websites

In this article, you will find a list of 10 of the best torrent websites that continue to work legally in 2021. I have compiled this list of websites based on the download speed, Interface, security, search results, and availability of non-copyrighted content that can be downloaded safely. 

Torrenting is not what it once was, you will find thousands of sites that claim to be torrent download portals, however, most of them will just trap you in a clickbait net and you will end up clicking numerous pop-up ads. 

So, to find good working torrent sites I looked at the Google search results but there too, I found most of the torrent site lists are mainly used as a primary marketing tool for promoting VPN services. Having used torrent sites back in the 2010s where I could download any of my favorite games, movies, anime, or even software for free, I knew I had to share this joy with the current generation of torrent fans as well.  So I spend several hours every week to make sure the torrent sites on my list are continuously working with the ability to provide accurate torrent files of the content you are looking for. I update this article every week with the names of sites that are online and for a wider torrent file search you can check out this list of the best torrent search engines.

Note: While I would recommend using a VPN service when torrenting as it helps protect your online identity and mask your IP address, I do not endorse any VPN or use this article as a tool for promoting VPN services. This list is strictly restricted to finding only the best Torrent websites on the internet.

The Best Torrent Sites That Still Work in January 2021

1. The Pirate Bay – Best Multi-Niche Torrent Site

The Pirate Bay is one of the oldest torrent websites and since the beginning, its journey has been a roller coaster ride. The availability of a wide range of torrents in multiplied categories as well as support for magnet links ensures that The Pirate Bay still remains one of the top torrent sites in 2021. TPB has a simple and plain interface where you can see your search results clearly without having to scour through several ads.

  • Highly responsive  community and increased seeding

RARBG offers versatility with its numerous torrent categories 

RARBG has a reputation for providing only high-quality torrents. It also constantly updates its platform to ensure all users have a smooth experience while downloading even large files. I was very impressed when I found high-quality files for all searches even including older movies.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, RARBG is blocked in many countries, like Portugal, Bulgaria, Denmark, and the UK. So you can use these RARBG proxies to unblock the website if it is blocked in your region.

Average download speed:  6.1 MB/s

1337x Screenshot

All categories on 1337x have thousands of torrents

1337x has an organized interface that will help you find a torrent even if you do not know what to look for. In its latest update, 1337x went through a complete revamp in which the developers focussed on a better layout and eliminating all serious security risks.

1337x has established itself as one of the most popular torrent trackers in the world but unfortunately, its popularity is why Google hides it from search results. Pro Tip: Do not open this site at your work place as it features explicit ads.

Average download speed:  4.2 MB/s

Torlock is the best torrent site for anime  

Speaking solely about the website quality I was very impressed with the functionalities of TorLock, especially for a torrent site. The content available on the website is torrent files of manga, ebooks, and high-quality anime episodes.

TorLock has a lot of unique content that you won’t find on other trackers. Its vast library consisting of over 4.8 million files which are updated regularly will make sure you find the torrent you are looking for.

Pro Tip: I would recommend using an adblocker as this website can display adult ads. 

Average download speed: 4.4 MB/s

5. Torrentz2 – Best Torrent Site for Music Albums

Torrentz2 popular downloads

Torrentz2 will give you exclusive access to all kinds of music for free

Torrentz2 is the new iteration of the popular Torrentz website. It has kept the original site’s minimalist interface and main focus on music – it’s not uncommon to see decade-old torrents with 20+ seeders.

Torrentz2 retains its position as an ideal website for audiophiles despite the twitches made for magnet links. The torrent site also finds a place among the most reliable trackers on the internet. Overall you will also find a decent amount of movie and other content, but the torrent site’s ability to provide all kinds of music places it among the torrent sites for 2021.

6. YTS – Best Torrent Site for Movies

Here you will find all latest to rare movies

Works perfectly even with limited bandwidth

YTS popular downloads.

YTS has the best combination of latest and old movies

The next torrent site on my list is dedicated to all movie lovers. On YTS you will find all kinds of movies. The huge number of titles ranging from regional, Oscar nominations, dubbed to hit movies ensures that movie enthusiasts never run out of options. An added benefit of downloading movies from YTS is that most of the torrents have downloadable subtitles.

The torrents do not overload your bandwidth, which is a big plus point especially while downloading large movie files.

To sum it up I would rate YTS as the best torrent site in the movie category, so if you are looking for torrents for games, ebooks, anime, or others you should opt for another website from this list.

Average download speed: 3.2 MB/s

EZTV has had its fair share of turmoil but the site constantly made all the necessary updates to finally build its reputation as one of the best torrent sites for TV shows. 

EZTV has many active users who regularly update all trending TV-related content on the website.  The torrents that you will find here range from reality TV shows, late-night shows, latest hit series, and more.

Zooqle screenshot

Zooqle has the best range of game torrents 

Zooqle is one of the newest websites in the torrenting niche. It already has millions of game torrents along with 38,000 movies and 800 TV shows. An outstanding feat for a relatively newly launched torrent site.

Zooqle requires a couple of updates to get rid of some minor issues but overall its vast library of files will help you find the game you need.

With its interface to the quality of torrents, Zooqle has shown that it is here to stay. I have no doubt that it will become one of the most sought after torrent sites in 2021.

9. TorrentDownloads – Best Torrent Site for Software

  • Torrent library is vast and well aligned
  • Potentially blocked by ISPs in several regions
TorrentDownloads popular downloads

TorrentDownloads has all kinds of torrent files

TorrentDownloads is a hail mary if all other trackers fail to deliver. It is perhaps the least talked about the torrent site, however, it is the one place where you have a high probability to find any old, rarely-used software or even a little-known ebook that you are not able to find anywhere.

TorrentDownloads can potentially be blocked in your country, but if you are able to access it then you are in for a treat.

Average download speed: 2.8 MB/s

10. LimeTorrents – Best Torrent Site for PC Games

  • Most torrents are published from bigger, better trackers
  • Users have complained of lack of seeding and Poor torrent health 
LimeTorrents screenshot

LimeTorrents is one of the first torrent sites that uploads new releases

LimeTorrents.cc is a decent alternative to almost all torrent sites. Here you will find all types of torrents.

The one major flaw of the torrent site is its negligence towards old torrents. While all new and popular releases have lots of seeders and fast speeds, the older torrents are often totally neglected. If there’s one thing that Limetorrents needs to improve is its consistency, but overall it is one of the best torrent sites with access to free content.

Average download speed: 3.7 MB/s
