SeedPeer started out as a small torrent site a few years ago, our main objective was to keep the site clean, fast and reliable. After a year of solo administration we gained a few more administrators and developers.
How does this site work
Bittorrent is a very easy to use protocol, first you need to get a torrent client. Once you have the client installed it's just a matter of downloading .torrent files and opening them with the client.
Below you will find a list of terms and and explanation:
- Tracker: A tracker is a sort of container that holds information about the actual users who are currently downloading or uploading the file. On request this information is sent to the torrent client.
- Seeds: Seeds or a seeder is someone who has a complete copy of the file (in other words a uploader)
- Peers: A peer someone who mainly downloads a file and uploads the parts of the file which has been completed (downloader & uploader)
- Hash: A 40 bit string used to distinct/identify torrents/parts
How do I change the site language?
The system automatically displays the site in the language of the country that you are located in. If you want to change the language, simply click on the flag icon in the top right position of your screen and select the language you want.
Becoming a member of SeedPeer is easy and has several benefits. As a registered member you will have the ability to post comments and torrents with your own username, bookmark torrents and many more stuff. As we continue to improve our service we will offer our registered members unique features that are not available to the regular user. Click here to Create a new account.
Creating a bookmark is very useful, especially if you are somewhere and don't have a client or storage at your disposal. The bookmarks are only available to you, no one else can view your bookmarks so your privacy is guaranteed. Once your done it's easy to remove the created bookmark (one click).

Uploading torrents subjected to a few basic rules:
