What are Torrents ?

Torrent is a special form of file that is used in peer-to-peer (P2P) networks. These files contain the information of the actual file to be downloaded. Torrent files are usually smaller than 1 MB.

What is P2P ?

P2P is a network of computers which communicate with each other by running P2P software (Bittorent, uTorrent, Vuze, Limiwire etc).

Unlike downloads from the Web, torrents do not download from a single source while requesting for a file. Rather, torrents contain specific data that multiple computers on the network can access (using torrent clients) to send various parts of the requested file to other computers. Computers share a single file in a P2P network simultaneously. By using torrents one can download small bits of a file from dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of sources (computers), hence even huge files can be downloaded very quickly.
