What are the most popular torrent sites in early 2020? Continuing the tradition, Pirate Bay is the leader once again, while YTS follows in second place.
In terms of popularity, torrent sites seem to be obsolete and have been replaced by many streaming sites in recent years. However, they remain popular.
The famous website The Pirate Bay, after an adventurous year, has been relatively stable for the last twelve months, although it does not allow new users to register.
This year's list includes two new entrants. 'Fitgirl Repacks' comes in ninth while the Indian site Tamil Rockers closes the list in tenth place. These two replace TorrentDownloads and Zooqle, which were on last year's TorrentFreak list.
We limit the list to torrent sites that target primarily an international audience. This means that the websites are also famous RuTracker, TorrentWal, Squares, Dytt8, and Etoland are not included even if they qualify in terms of popularity.
Below is the complete list of the ten most visited torrent sites at the beginning of the new year. The directory is based on various traffic reports and we display the Alexa ranking for each one.
1. The Pirate Bay
After more than 16 years, Pirate Bay continues its journey. Although there were significant breaks in 2018, 2019 seems to have gone smoothly. The site closed subscriptions a few months ago, but remains open to the public. It still works with the .org domain, but no one knows what will happen in the future.
YTS.lt is the unofficial one successor to the YTS or YIFY team. The site focuses on movie releases that are popular around the world. YTS has recently been the target of three lawsuits filed in the United States. Although the administrator signed a consent decision to compensate a creator, the website remains online.
1337x maintains its position on the three serial websites. Unlike some other sites, it has a group of uploaders that provide fresh content on a daily basis.
The RARBG remained stable last year. It was founded in 2008 and specializes in high quality films.
NYAA.si is a popular replay of the NYAA torrent site. Although there is intense competition from alternative streaming websites, the torrent portal continues to rise in the rankings compared to last year.
Torrentz2 started as a replacement for the original Torrentz.eu website, which closed its doors voluntarily in 2016. The site does not host torrent files, but remains a popular search engine.
The original team that supported EZTV disappeared in 2015, and the new owners claim to own the brand name. The group changed domains last year and was blocked in the Netherlands for sharing an IP address with The Pirate Bay.
LimeTorrents has been online for ten years. But there are too many complaints, which seems to affect the overall traffic somewhat.
10. Fitgirl Repacks
Fitgirl Repacks is not a traditional torrent site. It is the home of a popular band that releases cracked versions of popular games.
10. Tamil Rockers
The torrent site TamilRockers is famous in India, where it is based. However, it is available in English and is used worldwide.
