Yehhh… I remember those times when torrenz.eu was used by millions of people worldwide and in the United States in particular. In the period from 2014 to 2016 I could hardly find a single person who would not look for torrents through Torrentz. I reckon Torrentz to be the best torrent search engine for uTorrent. I had never faced any tough sledding with Torrentz. Moreover I event didn’t know how it is not to open this search engine through torrentz.eu domain. It was like a catastrophe for me when I realized that torrenz.eu had been blocked. Torentz2.eu was also not bad, but still. As for me using torrentz2.eu is like using fake perfume instead of an original one: it reminds you something you adored someday, but now this fake thing makes only flesh crawl. I also tried the sites that started with torrentz3 and torrentz4, but they all were different. To be honest I don’t use any services like VPNs of proxies for torrent search actions by two reasons: 1. I don’t use VPN for Torrentz, as I know that VPN is not simply blocked by ISP or the government of the country, but it is shut down forever. 2. I don’t use proxy for Torrentz, as they are worse than the original site. I use Kickass search engine instead. I like Kickass Torrents because it is not only a search engine but a database with torrents of all kind: music, movies, soft, books and even pictures. Yes, I was surprised as well, when I found out that images are loaded through torrent sites as well.
Torrenting was always on the first place among various methods of downloading via the Internet. There are a lot of reasons why people prefer torrenting:
- torrenting is free, and all the materials downloaded by means of it are free as well;
- access to the content unavailable in an area a user lives in;
- entertaining products become available earlier on the Internet and there is no need to wait until a long-expected movie, which will be broadcasted on TV or at the cinema.
Torrentz.eu was among the best search engines for torrenting. It was created and launched in the distant 2003 in Finland for BitTorrent. Torrentz was a free meta-search engine that combined results from a great number of search engines for thirteen years.
Advantages of Torrentz
Torrentz had an elementary interface with four inputs (Search, myTorrentz, Profile, Help) and a search panel. Even an average user could use it without any difficulties.
The registration was unnecessary what made this torrent search simple and reliable as nobody liked to share personal data on the Internet. For sure, it was possible to create a profile on torrentz.eu to get access to previously downloaded files and other options. But torrentz.eu worked without any faults even without the process of registration.
Torrentz.eu was absolutely commercial free. Some Internet users even don’t guess that commercials influence the process of downloading. But pop-ups with commercials need MBs to be presented to the audience, that is why the speed of downloading slows down. Torrentz.eu benefited from the fact that it was commercial-free as the speed on torrentz.eu was always stable and quick.
Torrentz users could download the files (movies, books, software, etc.) in different languages and absolutely free. Even the products, which were paid on other torrents, were free on torrentz.eu.
Because of numerous positive sides of this powerful torrent search engine the website torrentz.eu assumed № 2 spot in the rankings of best torrent engines twice – in 2012 and 2015.
How did people use Torrentz?
It is necessary to mention again that the registration on torrentz.eu was optional for its users. That is why to start using this torrent engine a user was either to log in or to start using it without registration.
To find a necessary file a user was to start typing a word or a phrase into a search field, which was autocomplete-enabled. It is a software function that gives users the option of completing words or forms by a shorthand method on the basis of what has been typed before.
After this action the list of suitable files for downloading appeared and a user was to choose the most appropriate for him. This torrent search engine also allowed filtering the results by age, topic, quality, etc. And the chosen file could be successfully downloaded.
The end of torrentz.eu activity
The year of 2016 became a crucial for torrentz.eu. On the one hand, this torrent search engine took the second place among the best engines for torrenting for the second time, but on the other one, it passed out of existence. The Torrentz alternatives today are torrentz2.eu and torrentzeu.to. Besides, advanced users prefer VPNs for a reliable and safe downloading on the Internet.
