istole.it - An open tracker project

istole.it is a bittorrent tracker free for anyone to use. You don't need to register, upload or index a torrent anywhere, all you have to do is to include the istole.it tracker URL in your torrent.

How does it work?

When you create a torrent file the application will ask you for a tracker address, then simply type in istole.its tracker URL:

udp://tracker.istole.it:80

Are there other open bittorrent trackers?

Yes! We encourage you to use multiple trackers, this will increase your torrents accessibility. OpenBitTorrent, Chaos Computer Club and PublicBT are another free, no strings attached, stable bittorrent set of trackers.

udp://tracker.ccc.de:80

udp://tracker.publicbt.com:80

Why use the istole.it tracker?

There are only a few open independent stable trackers out there, most of the trackers that can be used openly are either unstable or in some way connected to a bittorrent indexing site. We felt there was a need for a free, no strings attached, stable bittorrent tracker.

Why the need for an open bittorrent tracker?

There are many reasons, the most important ones includes:

I already have .torrent files, how can I add your tracker?

How can I remove an info_hash from the tracker?

A few pointers to people considering sending DMCA takedown notices:

So what should you as a content owner do? First off, contact the indexing site where the torrent download originated from and ask them nicely to remove the listing and the .torrent file!

You mentioned donations, how can I help?

Something's broken, the tracker doesn't work, what should I do?

First off wait 6 hours, if it's something big we will already have it fixed by then, if we haven't send an email to , and report what IP you are trying to connect from, if you can ping the server, and if you know what a traceroute is, include one in the mail.
