This page allows authorized visitors to upload torrents to the DistroWatch tracker.
Bittorrent is a powerful peer-to-peer file sharing technology which makes transferring large files with many people easier. Large files, such as ISO images, can be shared more quickly among groups of people because each person downloading the file can also help share it with others. This takes a lot of the burden of providing network bandwidth off the publisher.
From this page authorized visitors can upload new ISO torrents to our torrent racker. This allows other people to find and download these torrents through our Torrent Archive.
To gain the ability to upload torrents to the DistroWatch torrent tracker and archive, please e-mail us with the words "Torrent Beta" in the subject line. We will reply with your upload username and password.
When uploading new torrents, please make sure the name of the torrent file is descriptive, letting people know what it contains. The name fedora.torrent only features the name of the distribution while fedora-26-workstation-amd64.iso.torrent provides the name of the distribution, the version number, edition and architecture. This makes it easier for people to discover the torrents they wish to download.
