Torrent sites are the best stop to download any soft content including movies, games, software, books, music and even explicit content. But torrenting these days is not that safe which it used to be a few years back. Some of the most popular torrent sites are dying like flies these days but some of them prevail all hurdles caused by governments. We all do remember how KickAss Torrent went down.
Now, most of the old and best torrent search sites are using proxy servers to serve users and to keep the content free on the internet. In early 2016 KickAssTorrent used to be the topmost torrent search site followed by The Pirate Bay but in past few years a lot of biggest torrent sites have disappeared or lost popularity they enjoyed before. So you see the top torrent sites are changing more frequently than ever.
Note: We strongly suggest you use any paid or free VPN service before downloading any torrent from any of the sites mentioned below. It is more than possible that using torrent sites is considered by your local government and VPN will help you in hiding your identity online.
So here we have compiled a list of top torrent sites based on data from various sources just like in the year 2016. Let us have a detailed look at the best torrent sites of 2018.

YIFY’s official YTS went down and its place was taken over by YTS.ag, which has nothing to do with original one. But still YTS.ag gaining popularity among users because of the simple platform.
