No I’m not talking about downloading a Torrent file, you know that already. This post is all about creating a torrent file like you download from other torrent websites. You need a stable internet connection to create a Torrent file and for seeding.
What is Seeding?
Seeding means distribution of the files. You continuously distribute it for others so that they can download it easily with high speed.
What you need to Create A Torrent File :
- A good & stable internet connection for seeding.
- A computer 😛
- A torrent client like BitTorrent
- 7zip / WinZip / WinRar
How to Create A Torrent File :
Interested to know how to create a Torrent file? Just follow the steps.
1. Choose your torrent client.
2. Decide what you want to Upload
A video, image, or any other file or files & folders. Keep them all in a folder and compress that with 7Zip or WinRar, this will lower the size of your file.
3. Time to Create A Torrent File :
Now you have a compressed file and a torrent client, then you are ready to create a torrent file.
Select the files you wish to be in torrent.
Open your torrent client. Go to Files > Create New Torrent
On most of the torrent clients, this is the path. In case you feel any difference, just glance through all the available options first. It will help you find out the exact option. A new window will popup with many fields.
The first field shows the path of your file or directory. You can either enter the same directly or click on any of the options given there. Add File can be used to select files whereas the second one (add directory) is for folder, so select your compressed file or folders you have kept to upload.
5. Time to enter Trackers.
What is Trackers?
A tracker controls the transfer of data for your torrent. A tracker looks similar to an ordinary URL. If you want to index your torrent on a torrent website then you should use the tracker owned by that website. Just google it and you will get a list of trackers.
6. Add any additional Information
Add any additional information and click Create and seeding will start. If you don’t seed, your torrent file will be useless as nobody can download that.
7. Now Share your torrent file
Share your torrent file you have created. Choose any torrent website, create your account there and upload the torrent file you have created. Do this on all the torrent websites you know. Once people start downloading the torrent from this site it will gather more and more seeders. If you wish, you can stop seeding once the torrent is stable, or continue to seed.
