    Frequently Asked Questions
    How does BitTorrent work?
    BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer communications protocol for efficiently sending any type of file, large or small, over the Internet. Safe torrenting software, such as such as BitTorrent Classic, are needed to send or receive files using the protocol. With over 100 million active torrent programs installed on home computers across the world, the protocol enables efficient distribution of files from many recipients to many downloaders. Any file being distributed is segmented into many pieces that eventually make up the complete file. After the process has concluded, those same pieces can be seeded to become a source for other downloaders. In this way, the protocol serves as a decentralized ecosystem, made up of millions of active torrent clients.

    BitTorrent Classic is the best torrent software for the desktop if you’re looking for advanced configuration and the ability to download torrent files in bulk.

    What can I do with BitTorrent?
    In order to send or receive files over the BitTorrent protocol, you need a web or desktop-based torrent client, such as BitTorrent Classic. Once you have identified the torrent file to download, you can click or drag it into your free torrent software. Because the protocol benefits from hundreds of millions of active torrent programs installed on home computers across the world, the distribution of files from many recipients to your home computer is fast and efficient. If you keep your torrent program running, you can seed the same files you’ve received from others, which will share the files with others as they download.
    What is seeding?
    Seeding is another term for sharing files. However, before you can seed, you need a BitTorrent client. The first uploader of a unique file is the seed for that file. Downloaders, also known as peers, can download the file and in turn, act as a seed for others. Because there are hundreds of millions of users with active torrent programs around the world, the number of peers and seeds is vastly abundant, contributing to a healthy torrent ecosystem. BitTorrent Classic has a scheduling feature where both downloading and seeding can be set to run at specific times of day, making it the best torrent downloader available.
