Torrents are one of the best ways to share files which are heavy and can’t be transferred via wireless or wired sources. Torrents can be very helpful, when you want to share large files with your friends or with a large group of people and sometimes even with the people you don’t know. Say, you got a new game release cd, and you want it to share with people out there, then you can make a torrent of its components and upload it on any torrent website and boom….As soon as you will get some downloads, it will increase some more uploaders in no time too.There are many more ways to share a large file. You can upload them on some Cloud service providers like Google Drive, Dropbox, Skydrive etc. ,which are again allow limited size for free users.
What Is Torrent and How Torrent Works?
A torrent is actually a small file with extension .torrent which contains information about the tracker and where the file is located. To download a torrent file you need a torrent client like utorrent, bittorrent. Almost every torrent site offers free file upload in the form of torrent file.It works on peer to peer file sharing protocol.There are two types of torrent users: URL Shortener
Seeders:Seeders, as the name suggests, these people seeds or grow the file. Seeders are those people who keep uploading the components of the file after downloading it. The more seeders a torrent will have, the more download speed will be. If your torrents gets so many seeders, then it will be listed in the homepage too.
Leechers: Leechers are those persons, who just download the file using bit torrent client and then removes the torrent file from the client and hard disk as well. They don’t upload files after downloading. That’s where Private torrent trackers comes in action. Every user have to maintain 1:1 ratio (download:upload) else his account will be banned and I personally promote private torrent trackers for the same reason.
Things You Will Need To Create and Upload Torrents
- The main thing you should have a torrent client installed on your system. It can be either uTorrent or Bittorrent. If you are new to torrents, then I will recommend you to use uTorrent.

- Now you have to choose files to upload. You can either choose a single file by Add File button, or if you want to create torrent of an entire folder, then click on Add Directory button.
- Now you have to add trackers to your torrent file. This is probably the hard part for most people. But it’s pretty easy, just put in one of the popular public trackers. You can use one or more trackers, but in general one is enough.
Here are some good trackers you can use:
- Put one of these in the tracker box

How To Upload Torrent File

I mean to say that you want to upload it on the internet, then you can upload this torrent file to any of the popular torrent websites. Here in this post I will show you how you can upload your torrent file on ThePirateBay website.
- First of all go to the pirate bay site and register a new account.
- Once you have created and verified your account, click on ‘Upload torrent’ at https://thepiratebay.pe/upload.
- Now you have to browse the torrent file which you can created before using uTorrent client.
- Now you can add name to your torrent file while uploading. Usually it is fine to leave this blank, as it will use the name you used when saving the torrent file.
- Now, the most important part. Select a category to upload your torrent. The categories offered are Audio, Video, Applications, Games, Porn, or Other. The Pirate Bay has certain restrictions on what can be uploaded into each category. For example, if you are uploading a video torrent file into Audio, then it will give you an error saying that such torrent should be categorized under Video>Other.
- If you don’t want to show your identity or name to the people, you can tick mark the anonymous feature there.
- You can even add tags to your torrent file. Although optional, the addition of tags helps people find your torrent when searching.
- You can add image or description to your file so that people can get through it first before downloading.
