1337x is a website that provides a directory of torrent files and magnet links used for peer-to-peer file sharing through the BitTorrent protocol.[1] According to the TorrentFreak news blog, 1337x is the third most popular torrent website as of 2021.[2]



1337x was founded in 2007 and saw increasing popularity in 2016 after the closure of KickassTorrents.[1] In October 2016, it introduced a website redesign with new functionalities.[1][3] The site is banned from Google search queries and does not appear when searching through Google search.[1][3] This action was taken following a request by Feelgood Entertainment in 2015.[1][4] In 2015 the site moved from its older .pl domain to .to, partly in order to evade the block.[1][3][5]

1337x's design can be compared to the now defunct h33t.[6] It has been touted as an alternative to The Pirate Bay in face of its potential demise.[7][8][9]
