About

What is Bittorrent? Bittorrent is a protocol to transfer big files between users who own the same files identified by unique infohashes, the transfer process is done by a bittorrent client.

Where can I get a Bittorrent client?
utorrent is the best bittorrent client and it can be found at utorrent.com

What is a .torrent file?
It’s a small metadatafile which contains information about the data you would like to download, it is NOT the data itself.

What is a magnet link?
Magnet links are a new way of linking torrent files. Instead of downloading the torrent from a webserver, you download it directly from a seed/leecher. The biggest advantage is that you might be able to download the content of the torrent, even if the tracker is down or closed for registration. You need a DHT enabled bittorrent client to use this feature.

What are Seeds?
Seeds are the clients which have the full data of a torrent.

What are Leechs?
Leechs are the clients which are connected and already downloading the data of a torrent file and did not complete the full download yet.

What is a tracker?
A tracker is a server on the internet which coordinates the actions of BitTorrent clients, when you open a torrent, your computer connects to the tracker and asks for a list of seeds and leechers to contact to.

What is a private tracker?
A private tracker is a tracker that needs registration before usage, registration is done on the website of the tracker, not on Limetorrents.
