It’s that time of month again when we cover what the top torrents sites of the month are. Wondering who is the top torrent site of January 2017? EverydayElectronics has you covered.
2016 was a year for the books when it came to torrent sites as well as streaming, and hosting services. Various governments, rights holders, piracy advocates, and more, have been pressuring these sites to shut down, which has left many looking for alternative places to get their media. While some popular torrent website’s like Torrentz & TorrentHound shut down voluntarily, others such as KickassTorrents, were raided by the police.
If you rely on torrenting sites to access content like TV shows, movies, music and more, it’s important to note that there’s been a massive influx in fake and malicious clone sites popping up to try and take the originals place. These sites often feature a fraction of the content, as well as malicious ads, and malware.
To help users stay safe and avoid any unnecessary traps we’ve compiled a list of the top torrent sites to use after the shutdown of KickassTorrents, Torrentz, and TorrentHound.
The top 5 torrent sites as of today are:
#1) ThePirateBay – http://thepiratebay.org
#2) ExtraTorrent – http://extratorrent.cc
#3) RARBG – http://rarbg.to/
#4) YTS – http://yts.ag
#5) 1337x – http://1337x.to
*We always recommend users use a high tier VPN service such as StrongVPN while torrenting.
