100% Valid Torrent Proxy & Mirrors: Piratebay, Kickass, Torrentz

Olga Weis

Trying to get to your favorite torrent site but keep finding it blocked by various proxies and filters from your ISP? This list will give you the best mirror sites to get you downloading the files you need.

The torrent protocol has become one of the most efficient ways of downloading files over the Internet. By harnessing the power of distributed networks, software companies are able to distribute patches, companies can let users download large installations, and even media companies have been able to distribute movies and music to their clients.

There’s no denying that there have been people who use torrents for piracy, and we’re not going to insult your intelligence by saying otherwise. The problem is like any technology, it can be used for good and ill. People who don’t understand that just because something can be used for a good reason tend to ban it just for the bad reasons. Hence, the torrent protocol has been blocked by ISPs, company IT departments, schools, and other places where the Internet is used. Imagine being a researcher trying to download the DVD image for a distribution of Linux via torrent and finding out that the university has blocked access to torrents.

Torrent

Usually places will just block access to specific torrent sites rather than the entire protocol. Which makes the problem less of a hassle, but still difficult when you’re trying to get a kickass torrent or pirate bay torrent and can’t even get to the web page without getting some sort of "web page blocked" message.

The option has been to use a VPN connection which can get expensive. What we’ll do here is list out the best torrent mirror sites to use instead. This will get you up and running for your 1337 torrent alternatives. No, that’s not a pun for fans of 1337 torrents. Honest.

We’ll be covering two types of options: proxies/mirror sites and torrent site alternatives. This way if you can’t get to where you want to go in the first place, you can try a proxy system. If that’s not working, there’s a mirror site that replicates the main site. And if that doesn’t work, then we can go to third option and just use another web site entirely.

A Quick Note About Security


We are sure you will only use torrents to download completely legal files and have no intention on violating copyright in anyway, shape or form. Because torrents by their very nature are about not just downloading pieces of files, but uploading pieces to other people connected to the torrent swarm. The moment that uploading is included into the equation, then you start to get into a legal mess about distribution of copyrighted material, which is illegal from US law and treaties around the world. If an ISP finds that a location connected to them is uploading copyrighted files, they will start sending out notices to the ISP connection point and after repeated times can cut off their Internet access. There’s also the option that the copyright owners will sue people they suspect of violating their intellectual property.

So if someone was - and we’re not saying you are, but if someone was going to use a torrent to get a copy of the incredibly awesome Annihilation movie with Natalie Portman being so smart it’s scary, or complete their set of Bob Ross painting videos, then getting a VPN connection would be a good idea. Because they encrypt the information between the source and the target, it prevents people from eavesdropping or knowing what the true source of torrent action is. We won’t go into those on this article - that can be saved for another day, but it’s a way to keep oneself safe if you’re worried about it.

The Original Sites


Proxy/Mirror Options

So what if you still want to get to the torrent website of your choosing, but the web site is blocked from your use? You go to thepiratebay.org and find your ISP has blocked access.

This is where a proxy and mirror sites come up. There are two ways we can do this. The first is with the proxy.

It’s like having a friend who can pass notes for you in class. You want to pass a note to Suzie, but the teacher won’t let you just get up and hand your note directly to her during class. But - you can give your note to Bob next to you, who can then pass it on to Suzie without the teacher being any the wiser.

The other option is the Mirror. These are complete replicas of the original web sites. When sites like The Pirate Bay and KickAss Torrents started having legal problems, they put copies of their databases out into the Internet. This allowed anyone else to make a copy and put up their own website with the same information than before. Every time one site goes down, another one takes its place.

The links below lead to either a proxy or a mirror, sometimes randomized as sites are changed. As of the time of this writing all of the web sites are working, but if they don’t, try going to the main page link of the proxy and following the instructions there. For example, going to Sitenable.top lets you enter a URL for the site you want to proxy.

Alternate Torrent Websites

Sometimes it’s better to know when to just give up. Torrents are everywhere, and just because you can’t get to the web site that you want or its mirror doesn’t mean that the same information isn’t available somewhere else. This is where we’ll use the alternate torrent websites. If you’re trying to access torrentz.eu and that’s not working out no matter what you try, then maybe we just forget about that and jump onto another web site entirely.

Worldwide Torrents

Worldwide Torrents

Do you remember Worldwide Pants? That was the production company behind the David Letterman show. Which has nothing to do with Worldwide Torrents at https://worldwidetorrents.me/. It’s an indexer of torrent and works as a pirate bay alternative if you find that one blocked off. The search results can look a bit busy with all of the options it gives you, but that also helps to filter out what you don’t need.

The options are both a strength and a weakness of the site. It’s like when you’re in the grocery store and you find there are 50 different toothbrushes and your brain shuts down because there’s just too many choices. It’s called decision paralysis, and using Worldwide Torrents can feel like that sometimes with the sheer number of search options that you can restrict the torrent results to. Best thing to do is focus on what you want to find and now let the sheer options get to you when looking at a kickass system. Worldwide Torrents works well as a torrentz alternative or anything else that you’re needing fulfilled, just don’t get carried away with options.

Anime Tosho

Anime Tosho

Are you a fan of anime? Call yourself an otaku, a weeaboo - it’s all ok to enjoy what you want to enjoy. Which is why if you’re unable to hit “kickass to” or a torrentz2 to get your fix of One PIece or your One Punch Man action, then https://animetosho.org/ is an option that might get you downloading your favorite shows from Japan. It’s something an extratorrent alternatives might not be able to represent with the focus on mainly anime titles and series. Fansubs, DVD rips, and other media from Japan that will tickle your animation needs. So far it hasn’t run into issues like the classic anime kickass torrentz like site BakaBT has gone through, but as with all torrent sites, your mileage may vary. Or kilometers may vary for those who are outside the US and are civilized people who use the metric system.

LimeTorrents

LimeTorrents

A good shot of tequila involves a lick of salt, a spritz of lime juice, and then taking a hit of the tequila. This will do you no good for downloading files through a torrent system, but it will likely make you feel better about not being able to use piratebay alternatives. But if you don’t want to just drink your issues away, then Limetorrents.cc can help you get to the torrent file that you’ve been looking for. But if you are going to drink a tequila, make sure it’s an authentic one. Don’t go with a cheap alternative. It’s like using a 1337 torrent when it’s not “elite” but just kind of so-so. Life is too short for normal. Get what’s nice.

One thing that makes LimeTorrents displays the health of a current torrent transaction. So rather than guessing if the time you took to find a extratorrents unblock option was worth it, there’s a handy visual indicator if the torrent is healthy or is having problems so you don’t waste your time on a dud. Like getting a cheap tequila. I really shouldn’t have to hammer this home but do you know how many good margaritas are ruined by cheap tequila? Don’t be cheap. LimeTorrents is nice but not cheap.

Popcorn Time

Popcorn Time

This isn’t a torrentz2 search engine or anything that will get you onto the torrent networks. But Popcorn Time at https://popcorn-time.to/ is a streaming service. If you’ve been wanting to watch a movie or that TV show that’s not available otherwise, then this will help you check out the latest episodes of Gossip Girl or Beverly Hills 90210. Wait - are those shows even running? Anyway if you’re looking more for a show than just a straight download, Popcorn TIme might work as an alternative.

One warning, though. Like using torrents from the pirate bay, if you use it without a VPN, there’s a chance that your ISP will detect its use, which means that you might get a nasty letter regarding the use of copyright violations. A private VPN will run about $5 a month, give or take depending on who you want to go with. But that’s a different article for another time.

IDOPE

IDOPE

You might be curious about just what the meaning of 1337 is about. Back in the early hacker days, it was considered cool by the cool kids to use numbers in place of letters. 1 and L are often mismatched on old typewriters - which is why good programmers use a distinctive font like Fira Coda so you can easily tell a one from a small L, while the 3 is the place of the letter E, and 7 becomes a T. Which really, a 7 is an upside down L except that 7 is from the old Indian numeral system adopted by the Arabians and then by the Europeans. This has nothing to do with iDope. This is more a kickass download alternative to get your torrent files. In a 1337 way.

So what makes iDope useful as a kickass torrent system? It’s built from the start to be an a kickass alternative and it’s bigger claim is they don’t track you, so when the original site goes down, the same torrent and magnet links are available. The lack of tracking is also a privacy boon if that’s a concern. This also makes it work as a 1337 torrent alternative if you’re more into that web site but can’t reach it. Sometimes people just want to use what they’re used to, and iDope wants to provide that nostalgic feeling of kicking ass. Or kickass torrents.

TorrentDB

TorrentDB

Finding a torrent can be an issue when what you’re trying to do is find that one pesky download and don’t know where it is. Maybe it’s on a 1337x proxy or somewhere on an extra torrents site. This is why http://torrentdb.li/ is essential to help finding them. That old DOS application that you need to decode some piece of data or maybe you’re doing a research paper on the Japanese version of Spider-Man (where he pilots a giant robot with a leopard theme. Why a leopard theme? Some things are betting left unknown). There’s a chance that TorrentDB might have a copy of that torrent you need. They do make you download their own program run on your computer, which might be an issue if you don’t want to clutter your computer with extra software.

SeedPeer

SeedPeer

https://www.seedpeer.eu/ really gets to the heart of just what torrenting is all about. Every torrent starts with a seed - the original uploader, that puts its files out in pieces for those looking to download them. Suppose someone puts their torrent on the extratorrents cc website. It started with that one person, pieces of their torrent going about to other people. The pieces they have are sent to those without those parts, and and over and over again. So if you need an alternative to finding 1337 torrents, SeedPeer gets to the heart of how torrents are supposed to work.

isoHunts

isoHunts

Isos are files that are the digital representation of CD, DVD,and Blu Ray drives. They’ve been around since the first CD drive came into being and will be around until the day that we’re all plugged into the Matrix and can just live in a permanent virtual reality. Actually, we’ll still have iso images because the virtual CDs we use will be composed of iso images held by our machine overlords. isoHunts, located at https://isohunts.to/ , is a piratebay like site driven by people who want to share files with the world. If you’re using torrentz.eu or need a piratebay proxy, this is the next best place to start with.
As a separate note, if we are living in a holographic existence, then I would like to inform the people running this simulation you really need to make some better tweaks for the system. Whoever came up with wasps really needs to remove that subroutine from the system.

RARBG

RARBG

There are some words that are fun to say. They make our mouths make weird shapes that look funny and sound fun. Like dinosaur. Or Obama. Piratebayproxy (say that one three times fast). Or RARBG. RARBG is a 1337 torrent alternative with the best name of them all. https://rarbg.to/ has torrent files, magnet files, and also provides news about the entertainment industry. When people want to go with a place that isn’t just going to get them torrents, but also will provide them with a kickass download replacement system that sounds great to say, then just open up your mouth and say RARBG. How is that pronounced, I don’t think I can tell you. But you can have fun trying while you’re downloading a file.

TorLock

TorLock

When Tor was first created, it was meant to be a system for people evading their governments control over their Internet systems. Places where access to free information was stopped at that countries routers, and a way for people to be free. Like we said about how all technology can be used for good or for ill, Tor has been used by journalists getting the word out about the truth, and it’s been used by people to exchange some of the most awful material on the planet.

Which is why Torlock’s name honestly makes little sense. I guess we could give it credit that with https://torrents.me/ it’s working with only “authentic” torrents. Does that mean they’re organic or something? In that way it’s working like a kickass tor verifying things, a way for information to get out to people who want it but aren’t supposed to have it. Or maybe they just think it’s a really cool name.

BTScene

BTScene

Bit Torrent Scene is a torrentz search engine replacement alternative at https://btsone1.unblocked.wtf/ with an interesting visual format. So many of the torrent based sites like those on extra torrents or 1337 torrents have busy interfaces. They’re all over the place with checkboxes, dropdowns, text boxes that need filling out.

BTScene does away with all of that. It’s not just another set of piratebay mirrors, but features a minimal interface so you can find just what you’re looking for. Just type in what you’re looking for, or click on one of the most common settings. Not a ton of extra garbage to throw you off the scent of the torrent file that you want to download and implement.

Honestly, if I’m looking for a torrent, I’d want to go with this one just to avoid all of the nonsense that other torrent sites push on people.

Monova

Monova

I like to use a day planner system, and of all of the formats I prefer is Monticello. It doesn’t look like a kickass torrent proxy - because it’s made of paper. I said it was a day planner system. But the color scheme and system are very clean, and while a day planner is hardly a replacement for a torrentz search engine, it looks nice. Monova has a similar look to it. Just a line, and a button “Search” on it. That’s it. It’s not quite full minimalist, but of all of the torrent sites it’s the closest to it. And it’s a nice shade of blue. Very relaxing on the eyes.

All of the Options

With this list, the odds are you can find the extratorrents movies or whatever other torrents you’re looking for. Remember to keep your antivirus and malware detectors on, use a VPN, and keep a level head about what you’re using.
