Why should I burn my file?

  2. More ways to share: Every torrent on our site automagically receives an exclusive Download Button complete with live statistics of your torrent file that you can put up on your site allowing easy access for your users.
  3. We make servers happy: By burning the files on your server to torrents, you substantially reduce the load on your servers since the users downloading your file through your torrent are downloading the file from both their peers and your server. We manage the torrent files leaving your server free to do more important things.
