If you've got a file on your computer and you want to transfer a private copy to another person by means of a server, you'll be using one of the basics of the distribution of P2P files (peer-to-peer). That's generally how these download sites work: transferring files to a user or thousands of user. A well-known example is the case of 1337x that's still at it even after all the security problems suffered.
We're talking about a website that provides us with a directory of .torrent files and magnet links shared through a P2P system using the BitTorrent protocol. After all the problems it had and despite the fact that it's down very often, TorrentFreak has recognized it as one of the 10 best torrent download sites in 2017. Here you'll find all sorts of files at your reach, categorized as:
- Torrent trends.
- Movie library.
- TV library.
- New episodes.
- Top 100 torrents.
Furthermore, it also offers us the advantage of being able to search for and locate plenty of .torrent files in the language of our choice, so that we don't have to resort to subtitles.
How to download from 1337x
To download the files of your choice from the web, you only have to follow these steps:
- Step 1: Type whatever you want into the search bar.
- Step 2: Click on the desired file.
- Step 3: Choose the type of P2P file you want: Magnet to open the link straight in your BitTorrent client, streaming (installing the TorrentsTime plugins and software), .torrent file to star the download manually or direct download through an external page.
Once you've got the file you want, just sit down and relax. And don't forget the popcorn.
