The spirit of the internet is sharing. When it comes to sharing large file resources such as movies and TV serials, torrent is the way to go. Here, we’ll show you how to make a torrent file from start to the end. Let’s get started…
Moreover, torrent allows you to share files of any format or size. There are no restrictions whatsoever. That’s a significant departure from what most other file-sharing platforms such as emails have to offer. With that being said, let’s get to the details of how to make a torrent file step by step from start to end, with no steps skipped.
To get started with qBittorrent, first, you need to download and install the desktop client from the official site.
Step 1: Once successfully installed, launch the tool on your PC, then click on the Tools tab then select torrent creator. The torrent creator window will appear. You can also access the torrent creator by simply pressing Ctrl+N.
Step 2: In the Torrent Creator window, click on the Select file or Select folder buttons to choose the file or folder you wish to share. Alternatively, you can use the drag and drop area to select the target file or folder.
Step 3: After selecting the file or folder, go ahead and check the boxes right below, depending on how you want the torrent file to turn out.
Step 4: Enter the Tracker URLs for convenient communication between the peers downloading your torrent file. This is important considering that torrent file sharing is P2P-based. Meaning, if more people download the content concurrently, the speed is likely to be much slower, leading to a more protracted download time. The converse is also true.
Tracker URLs give the user access to alternative links for accessing the torrent file in case the original one goes down for whatever reasons, thus ensuring much faster download speeds. Examples of torrent tracker sites include:

Step 5: At the bottom of the Torrent Creator window, click Create Torrent. That will prompt you to save the file. Select where you want to save your new torrent file. Congratulations! You’ve successfully created your first torrent file.
You can now share the torrent file with friends and colleagues via a download link or simply upload it on torrent sharing sites such as:
Creating torrent files with Utorrent is much easier than you think. To get started, navigate to their official site, and download the torrent client for Windows, Mac, Android, or Linux.
Step 1: Install and then fire up the Utorrent desktop client.
Step 2: Click on the File tab, then select Create New Torrent. Alternatively, you can locate and click on the Create New Torrent icon under the tabs section. A window with the same name will pop up.
Step 3: On the pop-up window, choose the file you wish to turn into a torrent by clicking on Add file button. Alternatively, you can click on Add directory and then search or paste the link for the location of your selected file.
Step 4: Add the tracker URL (for more help, check out this full list of tracker URLs), then under the “piece size” dropdown, choose auto-detect. Under “other,” check the boxes for Start seeding and Preserve file order.
Step 5: Click Create and Save as at the bottom of the Create New Torrent window, then save your torrent file.
If you followed through to the end, your torrent file should be ready for seeding. Go ahead and share with friends or upload the file to one of the popular torrent sharing sites like:
While it’s easy to create torrent files offline using desktop torrent clients, the procedure is even easier when done online. Here’s how to do it using the Kimbatt Online torrent creator.
Step 1: Visit the site, then choose the file or folder whose contents you wish to convert to torrents. To do that, click on either select file or select folder, as appropriate.
Step 2: Enter your preferred torrent name under piece size select automatic. Leave the box for private torrent unchecked. Instead, check the box for “set creation date.”
Step 3: Insert the tracker URLs under the “add trackers” section. If your file is sourced from the internet, copy and paste the site’s URL under the “web seeds” section; else, just skip the section.
Step 4: Click creates torrent and proceeds to save the torrent file(s) on your computer.
Step 5: Once the torrent file is downloaded and saved, you can create a download link on your site so that users can access and download the torrent file directly. Alternatively, you can upload the file to any of the top-rated torrent sharing sites.
As you have seen, creating a torrent file is so easy. Now that you have the torrent file ready with you, the next task is sharing it. There are two ways to do that. You can create a download link on your site and share the same with friends so that they can access and download the torrent file. Another option is to upload the file to popular torrent sharing sites from where many users can access and download it.
