ExtraTorrent was one of the biggest search engines for Torrent files, but, after it was closed, the geeks of the network are already ready to migrate to other alternative services.

Here are the alternatives to ExtraTorrent that closed its doors

First of all, I would like to point out that those who want to see the latest movies or the latest TV series broadcast on satellite channels, can always rely on the streaming, especially considering that today there are many websites that allow you to watch movies and TV series so completely free streaming from any platform, without registration and without the need to install any software on your computer.

The same is true for anyone who wants to download programs, games or other files from the Internet: there are many websites and forums in which you can find materials of any kind, to be downloaded for free from many file hosting sites like Mega, Usarscloud, Uploaded, Rapidgator and many others.

In short, it is clear that the alternatives to Torrent files are not lacking and, indeed, are in my opinion much more comfortable, fast and easy to use.

Some more torrenting sites:

Among these, a quick mention to these 3.

1. The Pirate Bay

Although it has been closed and re-opened many times, it remains one of the most famous Torrent sites, known and used in the world. They tried to block it, but it’s always back online. It is undoubtedly the king of the Torrent. Inside there are songs, music, albums, games, movies, programs, ebooks and much more.

At the moment it is working on the .org domain.


Following the closure of ExtraTorrent, RARBG became the second most popular and used Torrent site in the world, just after The Pirate Bay. Founded in 2008, it offers indexing of Torrent files and magnet links to download movies, TV series, videos, games, music, programs and much more.

3. YTS / YIFI.ag

The current version of the YTS website is in no way linked to the original version or to the YFIF group. In any case, at the current moment on the site there are many films to download for free.

How safe is it to download Torrents from the Internet?

If you download Torrent files from the Internet, be very careful! Not everyone knows, indeed many think that downloading Torrent from the internet is safe and anonymous, but it is not.

You have to be very careful, because the provider of the ADSL line (which can be Telecom, Wind, Vodafone …) keeps track of everything you do while surfing the Internet, so they know exactly what sites you visit, what you download, what movies you watch and what files download via Torrent.

So, if you think about downloading Torrent in anonymity from the Internet, be very careful, because your ISP (the ADSL line provider in fact) keeps track of everything you do on the web, including the Torrent files you download.

If you decide to download Torrent files from the Internet and you want to do it safely, entrust yourself to a VPN, so that your traffic is secure, anonymous and protected. Only with a VPN can you download any file, program, document, film, TV series from the web without the risk of being discovered and in total anonymity.


Well, I would say that we have concluded. See the next guide on the world of Torrent files.
