Do you know how torrent sites work?
It is indeed a good question. But you will be surprised to know that torrent site is one portion of the entire torrenting process. Interested to learn about it?
File sharing is mainly the key process in Torrenting. In a general download scenario, when you download any file from the internet, the website will redirect you to the server having the file stored in it. In simple words, the file you have attempted to download is hosted by the server. This is referred to as a Server – client download scenario.
But, the working of torrent is completely different. It has adopted the P2P (Peer to Peer) technology over the Server-client system. As the name suggests, the download is happening from people like you and me instead of a server. So you can also call it a People-People downloading system.
The key difference between both the systems is that in the Peer-to-Peer system, you need not depend on a single person for your download. In this system, you will find that your download is happening simultaneously from different persons. Each person will hold some portion of the file.
You will need a torrent client to download a file. uTorrent is one of the torrent client application. You will be wondering about what is the role of torrent sites in torrenting?

You can also use magnet links to open the torrent file directly instead of download options.
