    Ok people, another crazy idea from my brain.

    -I know that some jurisdictions have problems with torrent sites, should I go with the old fashion torrent file or do magnet links?
    -Where to host if using Magnet URL?
    -Where to host if using torrent files?
    -How much server do I need to start? (A VPS would be enough and then migrate to a big server?)

    I'll be reading some legal stuff on the meanwhile, I found other threads but they were outdated.

    Interesting info: Most torrent sites I found are hosted in Canada.

    Why do you think this will work? There's already torrent sites for most everything.

    Piratebay for most everything
    Demonoid for a few rare thing
    iptorrents for everything + fast
    what.cd/wafflez.fm for music
    deli.sh for food
    cant remember names for blurays/movies/games
    gfxnews for 2d/3d art/models
    cgpeers for 3d

    What will make your torrent site better than the rest?

    Found a hungry market, looking desesperately for a solution since one of the torrent sites covering it died. If done right, well no need to tell the outcome.

    Nevermind, I found some places and a couple of good deals, I think this project will start earlier. Anyway thanks to all.
