How to Make a Torrent File

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.

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.
