Torrent Definition


Torrent is a type of computer file that usually ends in the extension .torrent and allows a computer to track files and download pieces of the files from other users across the Internet using a BitTorrent client.

BitTorrent clients are programs that are able to open .torrent files and use the instructions in the torrent files to locate the appropriate data and download it for other people using BitTorrent clients.

Torrent files can be opened by any BitTorrent client and will function the same way in each; popular clients include uTorrent, BitTorrent and BitComet.

Torrent files are typically used to share large data files such as audio, video and applications. Download speeds depend largely on how many other users are connected to a BitTorrent client and running the same .torrent file.

After a file has completed downloading, a BitTorrent client will continue to upload the file to other users who are running the same torrent unless the user cancels the torrent or shuts down the BitTorrent client, which is known as "seeding."

Leeches are users who run torrent files and abort the torrent as soon as their download is complete to avoid seeding.
