Torrent Freak conducted their long-standing yearly tradition by publishing their list of the top torrent sites at the beginning of 2023. When traffic is taken into account, YTS comes out on top, followed closely by 1337x. Meanwhile, the top three now includes the anime torrent website NYAA.
Despite the fact that the site and its users have been the target of numerous lawsuits in recent years, YTS is still at the top of the list in 2023.
Millions of people visit the main YTS domain name every day. When you consider that the website solely lists movie torrents, that’s quite an accomplishment.
Well-known companies are featured on the yearly list of famous torrent websites, and this year there are some significant additions. A pair of gaming-focused websites, skidrowreloaded.com and igg-games.com, have just entered the market.
The two newcomers take the place of TorrentGalaxy and LimeTorrents, which are still operational but have simply been outperformed in terms of traffic. If we had to identify a trend, it would be the relative increase in popularity of specialty websites.
Rutracker.org, Rutor.info, Dytt8.net, and Etoland.co.kr are not included in the list since we only included English-language torrent sites, despite the fact that they receive a lot of traffic.
Last but not least, we must emphasise that the annual rating is based on single domain names. The Pirate Bay and other sites would score higher if proxy sites and alternative domains were taken into consideration.
The top 10 domains for torrent sites at the beginning of the year are listed in full below. Based on numerous traffic reports, the list was created. Please be aware that this list was compiled as a historical record to monitor the sites’ popularity over time.
Using any of these websites is not something we advise or support. At least accidentally, some are known to link to harmful advertisements. The BitTorrent protocol itself is lawful, however sharing content using it requires the rights-holder’s consent.
