Demonoid is called a Torrent tracker because this website provides users with torrent files that they can download on to their devices and watch the latest movies or play the best games. The website follows the BitTorrent protocol to provide magnet links that can be shared among users and who use the same protocol, a process also known as peer-to-peer sharing. The website is also known as a torrent indexer as it provides a vast library of links that can help you access a large amount of content on the site.
The original domain name of the website was demonoid.com but in 2010 it was changed to Demonoid.me. The name underwent a lot of changes every time one website was blocked and the developers came up with another one. After all the various changes, the latest name is supposed to be Demonoid.pw. Apart from this name, the other official name of the website is also demonoid.click.
Like every torrent site, this one too has its share of proxies and mirror sites which can be harmful if visited. The names Demonoid.to and Demonoid.tv are the most common ones and the developers have warned people against visiting them. You must be careful not to visit these sites, lest some malware is downloaded into your device by them.
There have been a number of legal issues the website has been involved in and it has some quite a bit of downtime due to problems of hosting. There were even certain technical issues which prevented the users from making use of the website for a long time. Apart from these issues, the website has been working fairly well and has been able to provide users with a large amount of content to download and share.
As a user, you must keep in mind the necessary precautions you need to take while accessing such torrent websites. First and foremost, you must have a good VPN to hide your identity from your ISP and any third party which may want to track you. You may not be distributing the pirated software but you’re involved with a company which is, so you need to be careful.
Demonoid requires users to disable ad-blocker and hence you should have a proper antivirus running on your computer to make sure no virus or malicious content infects it. Keeping these points in mind and few cautions, go ahead and enjoy the website and its content!
