How to Create and Share Torrent Files

Jan 29, 2008
To create a torrent, you select the files you want to share and put them together in a folder. You will need a torrent client software to create the file. The most popular BitTorrent client, uTorrent, allows simple creation of torrent files by going to File-Create a New Torrent. Just add the files or the directory of the content you want to share. Then, find out the URL of the tracker. This is possible by going to the upload page of the site and looking for something that says 'Tracker URL'. uTorrent also has a piece size feature, but for mostly everyone that uploads a torrent, this should be left alone.

You may also which to start seeding once the torrent has been created. In some cases, you may not want to do this, as trackers will require you to re-download the torrent you uploaded before you start seeding. However, if you know this is not something your tracker requires, then choosing the Start Seeding option is fine.

There are many public trackers out there. Check out a site and review its policies and rules before making a decision. Several sites do not allow certain types of content. Please note that once you have created a torrent, it cannot be moved or modified.

Once the torrent has been created, uTorrent will ask where you would like to save the file. Try to make the description as short yet as descriptive as possible. If you name it "The Best Torrent", no one will download it. Put in details like title, quality, and format. At this point, it has been created. Simply navigate to the site that you would like to upload the file to, and follow the instructions provided on the upload page. If you are unsure of where to save it, just create a new folder and save all of your torrent files there. If you are unable to come up with a name for the torrent, search the torrent community sites and copy a popular name.

There are some private trackers that will require you to download your own torrent again after uploading it, but unless they specifically state this, there is no need. Many users of BitTorrent simply download from the community, but please consider uploading some of your own files to share. It is not difficult at all, and your content will be enjoyed by many. Uploading your own material on private trackers, it will greatly improve your seed to leech ratio. Because you are not downloading even one kilobyte, the size of the entire torrent will be added to your upload statistics.
