Before Using LimeTorrents, You Should Get a VPN

Getting a VPN before you start to download anything from any torrent site is really important if you value your privacy and online identity. That’s aside from the fact that you never know when your local authorities are going to ban LimeTorrents in your country. In such cases, VPNs can come in and unblock LimeTorrents for you.

Apart from that, VPNs can hide your activity from internet service providers and other peers on the torrent network. If your internet service provider is trying to throttle your internet connection then a VPN can help there as well and remove all internet throttling.

How to Use LimeTorrents

Step 1: Get a BitTorrent Client

To download torrents you need a torrent client. This step should be easy enough. You can go with any BitTorrent client you like. If you don’t have a preference, Tixati is currently the best free torrent client that you can use on any platform.

How To Use LimeTorrents - making a search

When on LimeTorrents, you can perform a right-click on the shown files and then copy the URL. Another way to get the URL is to scroll a bit to copy the link using the Magnet Download button.

Step 4: Use BitTorrent Client With Your Torrent Link

Now you should run your BitTorrent client. Once it opens, click the option which allows you to input a hyperlink to get content. Paste the URL from the previous step into the URL field and then hit OK.

Depending on the speed of your connection, you may have to wait a while before your BitTorrent client is finished downloading your file. Once it completes, click on it to open up all the available content.

That’s it really. If you know your stuff, learning how to use LimeTorrents isn’t difficult at all.

How To Upload To LimeTorrents

Uploading a file is a bit more complex than downloading one. While it’s more complicated, you shouldn’t have any issues as long as you follow the directions we have below.

First, you have to make sure that LimeTorrents allows you to create an account. Once you have an account, you can go to your BitTorrent client and click on File. Then click on Create New Torrent.

From that window, you should be able to upload a file or a folder.

Upload the file or folder you want to share and then look at the space for trackers in the window labeled Create New Torrent. This is the place where you need to input your trackers.

Where do you get trackers? From the torrent site you want to upload to. In this case, LimeTorrents.

That shouldn’t be a problem if you have an account on LimeTorrents. From the main page of LimeTorrents, you can click on Upload a Torrent and you’ll get all the information you need.

Some torrent sites allow users to have their tracker input directly into the user’s torrent file. This happens when the user uploads their file to the given torrent site.


The best way to simplify this situation is to simply create a new torrent file and forget about the tracker box.

Once you’ve uploaded the torrent file to the torrent site, download your own torrent file. Then perform a right-click on the torrent file in your BitTorrent client and go to Properties.

From there go to the Trackers section. This section will show you all the trackers your torrent file is using. You can then use the trackers in your future torrent files.

Use your BitTorrent client to check the box that says Start Seeding. Before doing that, make sure you’ve filled out the tracker bit first and have saved your progress. When uploading to a torrent site like LimeTorrents, you’ll have to fill out further information if they require you to do so.

That’s all there is to it. We’re assuming here that you know you can’t just upload a torrent and turn your machine or BitTorrent client off. You have to make sure both of them are on and running for other people to download from you.


As you can see, learning how to use LimeTorrents isn’t hard at all. You just have to take care of a couple of things and use a VPN to make sure everything that needs to stay private stays private.
