How to download Torrent files using IDM [2020]

As we all know to download torrents, we need to have a torrent client installed on our device. But sometimes, the speeds can go very low on these clients because of the lousy internet or low seeders. While it is the most common method to download torrents to one’s computer, it is not the only one.

There are a couple of other ways by which you can download a torrent to your computer. Like using browsers with an in-built bit torrent client and the one that we are going to discuss here, downloading torrents with the use of IDM.

Internet Download Manager or IDM, in short, is a Download manager application for Windows. By using the sites listed below, you can ‘convert‘ the magnet link to direct download which you can use to download the stuff using IDM or any other download manager.

What these sites do is that download the torrent files to their servers and then provide you with a download link for the file from there. The transfer of the torrent to their server happens very fast as most of their servers have a gigabit connection and they can provide you with a direct download link of the torrent within seconds.

1. Seedr

seedr torrent to idm

First, on the list, we have seedr. is a very popular site and offers one of the best torrent caching services that you can enjoy for free. To start downloading a torrent, you need to upload the ‘.torrent’ File to seedr or provide them with the magnet link. Once you have done that, the file will be added to seedr, and they will start caching it to their server.

Once it is on their server, you can start downloading your file with IDM or any other download manager. You can also copy the download link of a file to use it on the downloader of your choice. The link will keep working until the file is removed from your account.

Seedr can handle a file up to 2gb (free plan) and allow you to download your torrent directly via IDM with blazing fast speeds. You can store as many files as you want in your account until the storage limit of 2gb is reached.

Type: Free/Paid | Speed (free plan): unmetered


2. Offcloud


Offcloud is a website that I recently found. If you only intend to download one torrent file using IDM and need a free service with high storage and faster speeds, then offcloud is the one for you. They offer 10gb of storage space for free users. You can add up to 3 torrent files on a free account, and the speed they offer is un-metered, meaning no limitations.

To download your torrent using IDM, paste the magnet link on offcloud and after that click on download as a zip. Offcloud will now start downloading the torrent file to their servers. After the uploading is done, the downloading button will now become available. Right click on it and copy the URL, now open IDM and paste it in there, click ok and your download will now start.

Type: Free/Paid | Speed (free plan): unmetered


3. Zbigz

Zbigz is a very old torrent caching service. They support files up to 1 gigabyte and offers speeds of 150kbps in their free package. The speed is very slow when compared to services like seedr. I would only recommend using zbigz free when the torrent that you are trying to download has very fewer seeders and is small in size. Otherwise, if you have money, their premium services are very affordable. The speeds are really good, and also there is no size limit on the file/torrent.

Type: Free/Paid | Speed (free plan): Limited


4. Bitport


Bitport provides 1 gigabyte of storage space & un-metered downloading speeds, and that too for free users. If the torrent that you are trying to download is a video file, you can even stream it for free using bitport. The uploading might take a minute or so but the downloading speed will be very fast. While they only allow free users to upload 1 file per day, their excellent download speeds and 1 gb of storage space still make them a good site to convert and download small torrent files quickly.

Type: Free/Paid | Speed (free plan): unmetered


5. Dasan

Dasan offers a couple of file caching services, but here we are going to talk about Torrenting. Once you sign up and create an account on their site, you can then add a torrent their via a file or magnet link. They will then cache the completed torrent to their server. And from there, you can download it at maximum speed with IDM or any other download manager.

Dasan is a freemium site. Meaning while they do offer their service for free, to get the most out of it, you will need to pay. No need to worry tho as dasan have plans which you can get for as low as 3 $, it will grant you 35 gigs of space on their premium servers.

Type: Paid | Speed (free plan): Limited


6. Boxopus

torrent to idm boxopus

If you want un-metered download speeds, 100gb of storage space, and that too for cheap, then boxopus is the way to go. You can get all the things on the list above for a single dollar, for a day that is. By adding 5 cents more, you get the service for seven more days. Your file is stored in their servers for up to 30 days, and you can access it even if your subscription ends before.

Overall, boxopus is one of the cheapest ways to download torrents using IDM. There are other free or even cheap options available, but they don’t offer as much storage space as boxopus and sometimes caps speeds too.

Type: Paid | Speed (free plan): unmetered


7. TorrentSafe


With torrentsafe, you don’t need to have an account on their website. You can add a torrent, want for their server to load it, and then start your download instantly.

They provide 1GB storage space and don’t have download speed capped. After the upload, your file will be kept for two days, and you can access it via a direct link until then.

Type: Free/Paid | Speed (free plan): unmetered


So there you go, these were some sites which you can use to get your torrent to IDM. If the download is starting directly in your browser instead of IDM, here is how to solve it.

First, find the download link or button and right-click on it.

There you will see an option called copy link location, click on it, and the download link will be copied to your clipboard.

Next, launch IDM and click on this button on the top bar.

The copied URL will already be there, and you need to press “Add URL.” Your download will now start on IDM.



Now an FAQ Section for some of the questions about downloading a torrent using IDM.

1. Is it illegal?

While it is not illegal to download a torrent, but downloading someones else’ es work and copyrighted content are. The same applies to directly downloading torrent using IDM.

Maybe you are using a service that is free and limits the speeds. Check out our full list; there are a couple of services which are free but still don’t cap download speeds.

3. Why use premium sites when there are free alternatives?

Even if some free sites provide unlimited download speeds and plenty of space. There will be some people out there who trying to download a huge file from a torrent, need fast speeds and don’t want the hotlink to expire soon.

4. The site is not caching/downloading your torrent.

There can be many reasons for that like the website that you are trying to use has some issue with its server, the problem is with the torrent trackers, etc. Another problem can be the low number of seeders on the specific torrent that you are trying to download. It is the most common issue and unfortunately means that either the torrent is dead or the reaming few seeds are not active atm.



This concludes the article. In the end, I want to say that this list of sites that I have prepared works excellent, even if you decide to use the free ones, you will get your torrent into IDM very easily. If you face any problems with any of the sites, try any other torrent link. Most of the time when these sites fail to load a torrent, it is because there are no seeders available. Also if you know any other good torrent caching site, suggestions are always welcome.
