Torrentz was one of the most popular torrenting websites back in the time. Not because it always had new content or crazy speeds, but because of the unique model of the website itself.
Torrentz had no files hosted on its own servers, but rather it was connected to the databases of multiple popular torrenting websites. By using the search engine, the system would look for your file on all of those websites.
In my opinion, it made things much easier and finding quality content took on a whole other meaning.
Now, we have the Torrentz proxies and mirror websites, since the original one was closed one.

1. Are these proxies safe to use?
Safe as it can be when using a piracy website. However, keep in mind that these proxies and mirror websites are hosted by unknown individuals who are in no way trustworthy.
This is one of the first risks you’re exposing yourself to. The person behind the proxy might install a couple of subversive hacking subroutines between the other code lines.
The moment you click on a certain link might very well be the beginning of the end for you. Data logging, identity theft, viruses, device hijacking. There are multiple endings to this story, and none of them are good for you.
The old Torrentz database was trusted by most of its users because it had built on a certain reputation. No sane person would destroy that hard-to-build name just to screw around with a couple of users.
On the other hand, many ill-intended people behind these proxies might actually use the good name of the Torrentz platform to attract unwary victims – you.
All I’m saying is that you maintain caution and pay attention to everything you find suspicion. One thing you should keep in mind is that Torrentz was always free. Always. If you’re asked to pay for something on one of its proxies, get the hell out of there as soon as you can. It’s a scam.
Theoretically speaking, Torrentz hosted no pirated content on its servers, so it shouldn’t have been closed. It was indeed connected to copyright infringement content, but in an indirect way.
Still, you can’t argue with the ISPs and government agencies that decided to ban it from the web. You can only adapt and survive.
The one thing you can do, however, to make sure you’re safe while using these proxies is use a solid VPN provider. The importance of one can’t be overestimated these days.
2. Go full-on plate armor – go with VPNs!
If you thought nothing’s going to happen to you in the future just because you somehow managed to elude all the risks, you’re dead-wrong. You can never know when a hacker might target you.
Moreover, there are plenty of viruses out there, phishing programs that’ll suck the very marrow out of your bones (steal your data), subversive code lines which will burn your device to a crisp.
You need to protect yourself. And you need to do it now. Think of it as protecting yourself against any cyber-STDs. Or other strains of deadly diseases that want to put you into an early grave.
Be smart and choose a good VPN. Take a look at this list of top three online security providers on the market.
NordVPN is NordVPN, and this is what it always has been. It might have started slowly, but now it has made its lair at the top of the food chain. The apex predator that needs only to show its teeth, and any other living being on a radius of a few kilometers is scared shitless.
Take a look at the traits of this fearsome paragon of technology:
- The absolute best security system in the industry – the AES-256-bit encryption protocol, the DoubleVPN feature, Obfuscated servers, and Tor over VPN. Nothing, and I mean it, nothing has the firepower to break through the cyber-shields that NordVPN defends you with.
- They’ve tried. And they’ve failed. One more privacy detail that is extremely important is that the VPN has its jurisdiction in Panama. This matters because Panama is one of the few countries in the world where there are no data-retention laws, and the internet is free
- Quantum speeds – these servers are the latest technological advancements that money can buy. And they’re always kept up to date with new upgrades. NordVPN takes care of that splendidly. You can get up to 500 Mbps on the high-speed servers.
- Considering that it has servers in more than 60 countries, there are plenty to play around with. And many IP addresses to hide behind
- Professional customer support – the staff is always responsive, polite, knowledgeable about their services, and very keen on helping you with your issue. This is the 24/7 live chat we’re talking about, of course.
- As for the FAQ articles, helpful tips and tricks, and user comments, this is where the solution to most of the problems lies. They have a truly expansive informational background
- Best-looking and easiest to use VPN client. There’s no in-between. Everyone says so, even top reviewers, and you can figure this out by yourself. Both the website and the platform are very accessible and intuitive.
- Best price ranges in the industry. When it comes to quality vs prices, NordVPN is the absolute king. The more time you want to subscribe for, the less you pay.
CyberGhost has become quite a legend for some time now. Being ranked in all the fastest VPNs lists for some years has brought it some infamy. And for good reasons as well.
Don’t take my word for it, just look at its specs and decide for yourself:
- 10/10 in terms of speed. I would give it a maximum score regardless of the scale we used, because this performance is just too good to be true. It’s basically at the same level as NordVPN
- HD, Ultra HD, 4K, you can stream anything for as long as you like. There will be no freezes, no mid-movie buffering, no interruptions, and no server crashes
- Servers in 58 countries – a little less than what other top VPNs have, but still far beyond what the average online security provider works with. There are thousands of servers that you can use, and exponentially more IP addresses.
- Good kill-switch
- Security based on the AES-256-bit encryption protocol – an impenetrable cipher in the cyber-world, one that hasn’t been cracked. Ever
- 7 simultaneous connections. Plus, the web and VPN platforms have been upgraded recently, and they were completely restructured, given a new design, and modernized. Everything looks new and shiny. Smeagol would love how precious it looks.
- Very good customer support – based on the 24/7 live chat feature. The staff responds in a few hours, a day at the very most. The replies are well-documented and very helpful for pretty much any VPN issues you might have
- Expansive and straightforward FAQ section. You’ll most likely find out what you’re looking for before needing to contact the support team.
- Prices range from $11.99 per month for a 1-month plan to $4.99 per month for a 1-year package. The 2-year package gets to $3.79 per month, while the 3-year plan goes down to $2.75 per month. A little spicy, right? Agreed, but let’s not forget that this is a premium VPN we’re talking about, after all. It’s not one of the average Joes dabbling in mediocrity.
IPVanish – the last legendary protector of netizens around the world, the final frontier against all the creeping threats that are prowling just beyond the wall. Winter is coming… and you have to be prepared.
IPVanish’s armory awaits you. Take a look and see how you can fight back:
- Very good VPN speeds – swift, responsive servers, especially the high-speed ones. You can go up to 200 Mbps in some of the popular countries. As for others, don’t expect the same level of performance. Regardless of the server, though, you’ll hardly have any problems playing 4K media content
- Maximum score regarding the number of locations and servers. There are 61 countries where IPVanish does its work. The shocking thing is the sheer number of individual IP addresses at play here – over 40.000. Rumor has it that the next-best VPN has about half of this.
- Accesses Netflix, very good for torrenting
- So-so regarding privacy. The worst aspect is the US jurisdiction, which many privacy purists have criticized since time immemorial. IPVanish does have a true zero-logging in effect, which means that they don’t record any logs. Absolutely none.
- However, the US is part of the 14-Eyes Surveillance Alliance, as you well know. And it’s not exactly very friendly towards internet privacy as it is.
- Not exactly the Adonis of VPNs, but it makes up for this by being more straightforward and to the point. What you see is what you get. The main dashboard is very easy to use, the settings menu is intuitive, but there are no browser extensions to speak of.
- Excellent customer support – many other VPNs fuck things up when it comes to this. You can wait quite a long time for a shitty reply that barely counts as customer support. Fortunately, IPVanish is the very opposite of that
- The FAQ section is very advanced, it has a lot of information, tips and tricks, and talks about the most common problems users deal with. As for the 24/7 live chat, you’ll find it’s very easy to use, and the staff is responsive and knowledgeable.
3. Unsheathe the claymore and cleave all surrounding enemies
A weapon, this is what a VPN is. And a very technologically-advanced one at that. Dealing in cyber-protection, cutting-edge security systems that activate in a nanosecond as soon as they identify the threat, almost omniscient staff team, and prices fit for all pockets – VPNs rule the cyber-world.
Don’t delay and choose one of the three I spoke about. Protect yourself sooner and you’ll live a longer and more plentiful life.
