5 Best Torrent Tracker Scripts To Start Your Own Torrent Site  

Posted by T ZAMAN in ,

In this article i’ve shared with you some of the best Bittorrent Tracker Scripts in PHP and my experience with each of them in very short so that it helps you in starting your own Torrent Site. This article only concerns private torrent tracker scripts and not the scripts which indexes torrents such as mininova. My highest advice will be if you are starting something with some fresh ideas and and confidence in the venture i recommend spending money and creating your own tracker from ground using something like opentracker which piratebay uses.


Xbtit is developed by Btiteam. It is released under Free BSD license. It is a highly recommended tracker and can certainly be regarded as one of the best available tracker. It even has option of integrating xbtt C++ tracker which is highly efficient. It uses SMF as its forum and the project is actively supported by a large group on members. Its definately the best choice if you want the best free tracker.

Torrent Strike

It is one of the modded version of original TBDev Script. Torrent Strike has many flavors such as officially supported Nzb, Fullymodded etc, or even some unofficial ones. The script is lightweight good for a starting new site which doesn’t want many hassels. I really don’t like the admin panel and settings are pretty odd. Its recommended to those who want to run a very simple lightweight script.

Template Shares

This script is developed by xam and comes at a premium, its originally based on TBdev, but it has been modded beyond recognition, the script is encoded and released so that it cannot be copied. I have used the script on one of my friends site and also asked what are his views about the script,

I was originally using torrent strike and i mainly transferred to this script as it looks good and supports external scrape, integrated imdb easy plugin system and many other features. Truly saying at first i was very happy with the script but later i realised its pretty security freak script banning every ip, without support of multiple downlaods for same user which really was a drawback to me as i sometimes release torrents in public sites. More over this script uses encoding and has many excess stuffs which are not needed but takes up my whole system ram and processor, its very system heavy. I will not recommend this if you have low budget and can’t get yourself a great server, or if you want a script which you can mod it to suit your needs. I will also not recommend who wants to release torrents in public. Moreover i find the script admin and moderator panel highly complicated. This script is only for sites who wants to have very secure site and lots of restrictions in site, or want to have ssl layer. For a general regular site this isn’t worth investing.

Torrent Trader

There is no summary to this i can’t pin point and say that “this script is for you”, its better you try the script yourselves and check which suits your needs and also your knowledge and you are better off to go with that. But as for general conclusion, i think you should obviously try Xbtit. and if you have money to spare you can go for Templateshares, though i dont think you should opt for that considering its encoded and you can’t suit your needs, but its all about your wishes, maybe you’ll find templateshares better than others. The other script mentiones are also worth trying and lastly it all depends on your needs and your pocket (not only on script but also on the server). There are many other script i haven’t included practically because either they are still in Beta or are ols and are not being developed. Some of them are Yana Scaturi, Gazelle, YAFTC etc.

What you can do next is visit BVList, and check out all options throughly and get recommendations from other users using such scripts.
