top best private torrentsWith Napster, WinMX, LimeWire, and Kazaa mostly in their graves (SoulSeek is still around, I guess), the world of filesharing has made a swift transition to torrents. Just like the good old Napster days though, public torrent sites and trackers are riddled with trojans and other garbage. The best way to enjoy your filesharing experience is getting an invite to one of the many (but few illustrious) private trackers.

While invite-only web is becoming a slight trend, I’m here to share three niche-specific and very reliable private sites that I use to get my complete media fix. Let’s get started.


PTP has been around for quite a while, and through a legacy of staff drama and domain name changes, it still stands today as the best private torrent site for movies.

top best private torrents

High-quality rips are added to PTP faster than almost anywhere else on the net, and speeds are generally top notch. PTP is at around 23,000 (of 25,000) users with a daily activity rate that hangs around 40%. Monthly, it’s at more than 90%. PTP is hanging right under the 100,000 total torrents mark. They’ve got over 53,000 individual movies, more than 80,000 subtitles, 533,000+ user ratings, 3.5 million total snatches, and a seeder/leecher ratio of 85.49. That’s impressive. The site is very smooth and easy to navigate, also.

As a little added bonus, PTP has some of the most active forums I’ve seen across private trackers. The community is very involved. This is where I go when I want movies. If you’re fortunate enough to be an active, invited member than you can tag along with me. My username there is Craig.


What.CD is the premiere private tracker for music. Even their splash page is mysterious and makes you want to join up. Like PTP, What.CD has been going strong forever. The site has not changed much over the years, and that’s a good thing. It’s here to stay.

private torrents

Here are the current stats that What.CD boasts:

  • Maximum Users: 200,000
  • Enabled Users: 147,441
  • Users active today: 31,864 (21.61%)
  • Users active this week: 75,651 (51.31%)
  • Users active this month: 120,045 (81.42%)
  • Torrents: 1,274,496
  • Releases: 588,517
  • Artists: 442,475
  • “Perfect” FLACs: 298,750
  • Requests: 158,012 (70.30% filled)
  • Snatches: 66,631,197
  • Peers: 8,836,049
  • Seeders: 8,687,317
  • Leechers: 148,732
  • Seeder/Leecher Ratio: 58.40

Those numbers are completely insane! If you’re an audiophile and love your FLACs, this is the place to be. I’ve never gone to What.CD and left without finding what I wanted. I’m CSS over at that tracker.


TvT is the up-and-comer of this list. It’s much different from PTP and What.CD. It doesn’t run on Project Gazelle like those two, the tracker software that What.CD made famous. The invitation and credits system is completely different also.

private torrents

Again, just like the others, this is absolutely at the top of its class. Sometimes shows are uploaded as briefly as 15 minutes after their live airing. They’ve even got sections of the website that shows recently aired episodes of the most popular TV series’, complete with the matching user-contributed torrents (if there).

top best private torrents

These guys are really doing it right, and their approach is definitely changing the way a lot of people watch “TV”. No more sitting and waiting, you don’t even have to set the TiVo. has everything you want, from Dexter to the most obscure foreign sitcoms. I’m over there too, self-named.

Now how do you get an invite to these awesome trackers? That’s on you. Just know that they are out there and hold all of your cravings and desires! In the event that you do get invited, you’ll want one of these clients to speed up your downloads The 4+ Best BitTorrent Clients To Get The Most Out Of Your Downloads The 4+ Best BitTorrent Clients To Get The Most Out Of Your Downloads BitTorrent is still a reliable and pretty fast way to download large files.

  9. Jared Gingerich
    June 4, 2015 at 12:03 am

    Guys, if you do get an invite from someone by asking for it via the comments section on an article like this, you are just going to get yourself and the person who invited you kicked off that torrent client. Your best bet is hanging around IRC chats and just getting to know people. You might strike up a friendship with someone who's on these clients. PTP and WCD are constantly fighting off attacks in the forms of DDOS or shady people who infiltrate their trackers. They are very very vigilant of members who give out invites for money or to random people. There's a good chance they've already read this article and checked the comments section. They are successful because they don't oversaturate, they don't open the floodgates and they don't put up with irresponsible users. There isn't a quick and easy way in.

  10. Jared Gingerich
    June 3, 2015 at 11:51 pm

    I mean.. let's be honest. PTP and WCD's tv show torrent little brother BTN is better than TVT.. The PTP/WCD/BTN trifecta is basically torrent world domination. If you can get on those three trackers you are pretty much set in every possible respect aside from those who are looking for video game torrents.

  11. Carla Benson
    June 2, 2015 at 1:06 pm

    If anyone could send me an invite to any of the sites, I would greatly appreciate it. I don't mind paying for memberships anywhere. The free sites have virused up my computer and i've had to start over. thanks, carla

    • Jared Gingerich
      June 3, 2015 at 11:53 pm

      PTP and WCD don't allow selling of invites. You pretty much just have to know someone personally or digitally to get an invite. Someone could sell you an invite, but if they find out, both you and the person who sold it to you will be gone.

    • Nanashi
      June 14, 2012 at 6:20 pm

      Attempting to trade invites basicly disqualifies you for any private tracker. And offering demonoid is as good as offering nothing. Everyone can join demonoid, they open up daily.

      • deathofnanashi
        June 14, 2012 at 6:44 pm

        Nanashi no one asked for your 2 cents, and for you info demonoid is not open every day for people to join. Take you comment along with your slanted eyed ass on back to your country and eat some rice.

    Im new to using torrents and am curious about what sort of criteria individuals look for before they send an invite to their private trackers? Do they require an extensive collection that you can 'bring to the table' or mostly do they not want a jerk in their tracker?

    Yes you will need to register but its free and they have all the invites to pretty much all the trackers - FTN, CHD, HDC, B2S, Torrent Leech, PTP, BTN, SCC,, Waffles, etc.
    Its a no trading, no selling of invites policy site. Only giving for free allowed.

    And Underground Gamer is great for all things gaming, though if you want recent games, they can't help you. Great for emulators and video game music/magazines/etc. They also have stuff for Tabletop gaming.

    • DaWander
      April 6, 2012 at 11:27 am

      Join a tracker which is open and make friends, some also have sections in the forums, where people can give and receive invites. There is also some forums dedicated to invites for torrent sites. Beware though, do not trade or buy/sell invites as this is very frowned upon by trackers.

      Also. If you have received a warning from your ISP about downloading copyright material, you should really think about investing in a seedbox.

      This way, your IP is never in a swarm and you can get your stuff from the seedbox using an encrypted connection, then your ISP can not even see the data.

  41. DaWander
    April 3, 2012 at 6:59 pm

    Digitalabyss is a new private tracker with a twist.
    No ratio or seeding rules. They just ask that you seed for as long as you can.

    If I did, both you and I would be banned. We'd be contributing to a lower-quality community at the tracker as a whole, anyway.

      What else is left after we leave out movies, TV, music, and games? Applications? I wouldn't trust a single torrent site that harbors cracked apps, not even a TorrentLeech.

    "that I use to get my complete media fix"

    You mean that you use to get your complete illegal downloading fix, of course.

      Sometimes I even skip looking both ways before I cross the street.

      hey missionary.

      Have you heard of the 8th commandment?
      Why dont you just come back home and be a hyprocrite instead of going to other countries and spreading lies.

    I've pretty much given up on invite-only torrent sites. I don't know any people who are members, thus invites remain elusive. Oh well.
