What is torrenting?

Usually, downloading the desired content to the device, such as a movie from Netflix, the file is received from one particular server. Torrenting, for its part, works in a specifically-different way accepting a principle of peer-to-peer (abbreviated to “P2P”) file sharing. In such a manner, it’s necessary to install a particular software (as for example BitTorrent or uTorrent) that allows for connecting to multiple machines spread across the global net and loading the file, which is divided into small components, from each computer.

The process scatters the files’ storage providing a possibility to share any type of data, while it is still loading on the user’s device. Thus, there is no need to wait for receiving the whole file. It is possible to share and transfer the file once the downloading process is initiated. As practice shows, torrenting eventually saves user’s time with no need to put any extra capacity on the devices within the network.
