Demonii Bittorrent tracker back online

A veteran of the file-sharing scene is back, bittorrent tracker Demonii. This used to be the largest independent tracker of its kind. was the largest standalone bit torrent tracker of 2015, which was then operated by the P2P group YIFY. Unlike most of its competitors, Demonii was not connected to its own BitTorrent indexer. It was created out of a need for a free, no-obligation, and stable BitTorrent tracker.

Demonii was once the most popular tracker

The US film association MPA was responsible for the closure of its predecessor. Their lawyers had good reasons to “take care” of Demonii at the time. Demonii began operations in 2013. 2015 this was with more than 09 Millions of peers and about two billion connections daily the most active Bittorrent tracker in the world. The numbers show the market power this representative once possessed.


As the colleagues from TorrentFreak now report, the project has been taken over by an admin named Suni. Suni is said to have been active in the P2P sector for a long time. Immediately after its resurrection, the number of users rose sharply again. Demonii is currently coordinating the broadcasts of over four million peers. The new operator had already had an eye on the project when the MPA disconnected the P2P group YIFY and Demonii from the network almost at the same time. The new owner had to wait no less than seven years before the domain owners were willing to sell their data to him.

IPv6 is also supported

Demonii, like the original, runs on the OpenTracker software, which uses comparatively few resources. Currently the project is hosted on two virtual machines running Debian 11 in Docker containers. By the way, the tracker supports both IPv4 and IPv6 connections. There is still air at the top. Nevertheless, he has already ordered more devices so that even more people can use them to carry out their P2P transfers.

Is a P2P tracker protected from warnings or lawsuits?


Suni believes that Demonii only offers a neutral service because the data is forwarded independently of the content. He compares this with the legal construct of an Internet provider, which under certain conditions is protected from liability on the part of its users. It remains to be seen whether this will convince the rights holders.

However, he is open to the blacklisting of certain content in order to protect himself from major legal problems. It is to be hoped that he has sufficiently protected his identity in advance. Otherwise, Demonii’s comeback would certainly be short-lived.
