What is a TORRENT file?

A TORRENT file is used to download a file, often from multiple locations at one time, with BitTorrent, a peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing program. The file contains metadata about a file or group of files to be downloaded, but not the file data itself.

More Information

BitTorrent downloads are split among multiple nodes, which reduces the bandwidth used by the primary server and speeds up download times.

Popular file types that can be downloaded using BitTorrent include digital movies and TV shows, music, and video games. Some are offered as free downloads, while others can be downloaded for a fee.
