If you are looking for BitTornado, you have come to the right place. We explain what BitTornado is and point you to the official download.

What is BitTornado?

BitTornado is a BitTorrent client for transfer of computer files over networks, including the Internet. It is developed by John Hoffman, and is based on the original BitTorrent client. The interface is also largely similar, but it includes features such as upload and download speed limitation, prioritized downloading when downloading batches, detailed information about connection to other peers, UPnP port forwarding, IPv6 support, and PE/MSE support. Super seeding mode and web seeding were originally developed by the BitTornado group.

BitTornado is powered using Python, for platform independence. Because of this, it can be used server-side on servers which support applications made by python, without having root access. Torrentflux is a PHP front-end for BitTornado, but because of its nature being inherently resource-intense, most shared web hosts tend to block these scripts. BitTornado is an easy to use BitTorrent client which uses the full BitTorrent protocol implementation, and contains many other features. It is an alternative BitTornado client that allows a bit more adjustments than its original client. BitTornado can also be used for Linux. It is a tool that is used to distribute files.
