Cyberlockers Outdid BitTorrent Websites

Cyberlockers Outdid BitTorrent Websites

Cyberlockers have outdone BitTorrent websites in terms of number of visitors. Although the trend has been developing over the last years, it has rapidly accelerated last year, when the number of hosting services taking over The Pirate Bay in traffic has expanded to five. This indicates that hosting sites now represent the new standard.

BitTorrent trackers have been holding the first place in the file-sharing world for over half a decade, from the mid 2000s. 3 years ago MiniNova became the first BitTorrent tracker entering the top 100 most popular services in the web. In a while it was joined by The Pirate Bay.

Although within the following years BitTorrent services went on dominating, cyberlockers were catching up in the background. And they were catching up really fast. RapidShare, of course, has been one of the most popular websites among cyberlockers, but despite the fact that it has always been as least as popular as BitTorrent trackers, it had no credible competitors.

However, the situation has been changing within the last 2 years, with a number of new cyberlockers seeing their traffic surge, while most BitTorrent trackers only experienced moderate growth. In 2010 the number of cyberlocker services that have surpassed The Pirate Bay in terms of traffic has grown to 5, and it is considered to be just the beginning.

The top 100 most popular websites worldwide lists Mediafire, Megaupload, 4Shared, RapidShare, and Hotfile above The Pirate Bay. Meanwhile, even the newcomers like Fileserve are expected to do the same, although half of such websites are younger than 2 years.

Although the majority of the studies see traffic estimates off by a few million, they still signal that cyberlockers have undoubtedly outgrown BitTorrent trackers. Although site visits can say little about the generated traffic, it is considered that they represent a good competitor in the field as well.

Of course, this trend hasn’t gone unnoticed to the torrent sites operators, forcing some of them to carefully explore their options to launch their own hosting services or cyberlocker search engines. The reason is clear – it’s most likely the area that will be growing in the coming years and therefore able to generate cash flow.

The most interesting thing is that the development of cyberlockers doesn’t hurt the traffic of BitTorrent websites, which are also seeing a moderate growth now.

No avatarYes, download fast (FREE!) on demand, rather than slower p2p downloads (with more chance of 'detection') can be expected to grow in popularity. Only thing is, much is only available online for a short time often only a few days, whereas p2p downloads are often available for years ,,, With luck, p2p is often set up while the fast instant downloads are on, to provide a longer term backup solution!
