A Top 35 list with the torrent sites of 2009

Bitsoup is gaining more and more notoriety amongst Peer to Peer users. They are also a private community, so you will need to sign up to participate in their swarm.

Btscene.com is the best torrent site out there, with possibly the largest torrents database.

Isohunt.com Isohunt’s webmaster is now counter-suing the music industry from Canada. He claims that previous suits regarding copyright violation were unfounded and, furthermore, he claims he is entitled to get his legal expenses covered. The whole story can be read at their website.

Demonoid.com is finally back online! After some legal trouble in April, 2008, they have moved their headquarters outside USA and have resumed their operations. It is still a private community, with members being responsible for any irregularities their invited friends cause in this community. If you get your hands on a Demonoid membership, be careful who you invite, or you might lose your own.

Torrentz.com they index torrents found on many trustworthy sites.

The Pirate Bay attracts many of the Peer to Peer enthusiasts.

Torrentportal.com

YouTorrent.com is still in beta testing. Their aim is to become the largest *legal* torrent site. They are still way smaller than “pirate” sites, but they are worth a visit.

Torrents.to

Torrentscan.com is pretty interesting. It’s a “meta search” engine, basically an engine that searches for results using other search engines.

BiteNova (formerly known as “Bi-Torrents”, this one is a free Torrent site that has a fast searching format and a spartan look).

Mininova.org Mininova is basically the new Suprnova, one of the first torrent databases on the Web.

Torrentmatrix.com

Torrentbox.com just like the case of Isohunt, Torrentbox has been filed a lawsuit by the MPAA. The days left for this search engine will not be many.

FileMP3.org

BTjunkie

Torrentreactor.to is the comeback from torrentreactor.com. They have passed their hijacking and the troubles with their hosting service. They are now located in Tonga. Details can be read on their webpage.

TorrentTyphoon.com

Yotoshi.com

Torrentspy.com – recently closed, on 24th March, 2008: “Torrentspy has voluntarily closed its doors. Instead of conforming to the American court mandates to change their privacy policies, the Torrentspy team has opted instead to cease operations”.

Snarf It! they are currently down, looking for a new hosting deal.

Torrent-damage.net

TorrentBytes.net

FullDLS.com

ByTorrents Meta Search(recently brought down by hackers)

Thinktorrent.com (offline)

Torrentlocomotive

Meganova.org

Scrapetorrent.com a new meta-. gaining notoriety

bittorrent.com (the official Torrent website by Bram Cohen, the designer of the Python BitTorrent format.)

FileList.org

Fenopy (formerly Bitoogle.com) (the ‘original’ bittorrent search engine)

BTbot.com (this site is slowly going down as well. It is currently indexing fewer and fewer files because, rumor has it, its administrator has been spooked by the avalanche of lawsuits against Isohunt and piratebay).

Special mention: Torrents.co.uk British site.

 A Special mention is : LokiTorrent.com shut down on Feb 10, 2005 after a lawsuit with MPAA.

Commonbits.com the search site contains media on political content: video, audio, reports, transcripts, photos as well as other files. This is the place for activists sharing their message and also for people to learn about political choices. Sadly, its owners were forced to move it due to financial/legal pressures. Numerous people are hoping to see it back soon.
