What is .torrent file?
The .torrent files extensions are related to the URL of a file or a group of files that can be downloaded with BitTorrent. BitTorrent is a P2P (peer-to-peer) file sharing program used to download a file form the internet and is often downloaded from multiple locations simultaneously. BitTorrent comprises the data about the file to be downloaded, and not the file data itself. The torrent downloads are fragmented into multiple nodes, which reduces the bandwidth used by the server and speeds up download. It facilitates sharing of very large files, such as movies, music, TV shows etc. Some can be downloaded for free while others can be downloaded for a cost. BitTorrent permits the sharing of downloaded portions of a torrent that other users have not yet fully downloaded.
