Public torrent vs Private Torrent
what is a public torrent ?
Do i have to tell this.All the famous torrent sites are Public.Kickass,Pirate bay,extratorrent are some of examples.Public torrent tracker never calculating or storing your ratio.(upload / download). So they never limit or banned your download ability due to lack of seeding.
What is Private torrent ?
something private ! just kidding. Here is the definition.
Private Torrents are issued by Private Trackers which require registration and often an invitation from existing members (in good standing). Most private trackers operate a forced ratio tracking system where a user is required to have a minimum amount of upload and are often required to seed their torrents for a minimum time limit to maintain their membership.
Many private trackers operate High Speed Servers (seedbox) to seed their torrents, so download speeds are often much faster. Many are also strict with enforcement of ratios and min. seeding time so it’s wise to thoroughly read the rules when joining a private tracker.
Some private trackers regularly open registration to new members at random times so that new members can join without need of invitation codes. Some also have an application process where a prospective member can submit references from other private trackers to show they have a good track record and will be an asset to the community. A good working knowledge of bittorrent and IRC (internet relay chat) protocol is usually required when applying for membership, but the easiest way to join is to be invited by a current member who has earned invite privileges.
Private trackers are stay private, but there are lot of famouse trackers out there. Demonoid,SceneAccess, TorentDay, torrenting,BitMe are some of them.
Reasons for use Private Torrenting
Searching a torrent file in a torrent tracker is like walking down in a populated street for shoping. No matter where you be you have been exposed to the world.But in a private tracker you only visible to limited area.because tracker do not allow anything from outside come in or anything from inside to go out. so you’re safe.Also when there is a Ratio maintain you’ve always get reasonable seeding for every torrent. That’s mean you can download files far more quicker than public torrents.Also you get access to scene releases most of the time. i will explain what is it on a next Blog post.not now.
so here are the reasons.
3.Direct Access to Scenes.
Is there any disadvantages?
yes.Everything is not perfect.so private torrenting also have some disadvantages.Site is maintaining my site staff.so you can’t do what ever want in this type of sites.some times those admins can be pain in the ass.sometimes they can be so power hungry.sometimes they never give a shit about what you done for their site.With a immediate ban (something they can do and not hesitate for a second) you could loose you reputation and the money you spend on seedbox. Other thing is you have to maintain a ratio.If you have a limited or slow bandwidth you gonna suck at this. sometimes no one gonna download what you download and you got stuck on seeding forever.
But after all i recommend to be on both type of site if you can because SHARING IS CARING.
