BitComet Introduces “Anonymous” Download Feature

Due to the amount of lawsuits regarding file-sharing and the methods applied in order to obtain information, users all around the world have become concerned about the safety of their data. Therefore, new methods of hiding their identity were developed in the past few months, such as “Anonymous” downloads.

China’s BitComet also said OK to this new feature as their importance in the file-sharing community has increased over the years. The VIP service now offers full support for anonymous downloads, thus protecting users’ safety. The client’s development team tried and successfully managed to bring BitComet to new heights. For example, in April this year BitComet released the first of all major BitTorrrent clients x64 bits stable version. One of the features of this version is that it allows for larger disk caches.

Furthermore, BitComet also introducer a feature called VIP-downloading, allowing users to download torrents that are accelerated by BitComet’s servers; in layman’s terms, the user basically has a high-speed seedbox that accelerates the downloading process of healthy swarms.

On June the 1st the VIP service included anonymous downloading in its features. This means that BitComet’s VIP servers will exclusively hide their users’ IPs.

“If VIP members enable anonymous downloads our remote servers will initiate all peer and tracker communications and download the data on behalf of the VIP member, so the member’s actual IP address isn’t shared with any of the peers or trackers,” BitComet’s spokesperson told TorrentFreak.

“Our VIP servers are state of the art commercial servers on some of the worlds fastest connections. There are no imposed speed limits, the only account restrictions are on a flat-rate basis”.

However, this service is only available as a free trial and to those who are willing to pay for having their identities safe. BitComet offers plans with 10GB and 100GB limits for $4.99 and $19.99 respectively. Anonymous downloads are supported by the latest Beta versions of BitComet. A huge demand for VIP accounts has been noticed as BitComet’s servers barely survived when first released.

If no major bugs are to be found in the coming weeks, the anonymous download feature will be added to their next stable release.

BitComet New Release Comes with 64-Bit Version

BitComet users will be now able to enjoy a fresh release of their favourite file-sharing client which offers a stable 64-bit version whose advantageous larger disk caches is surely to the liking of heavy downloaders.

Over the last couple of years BitComet has managed to become a leading BitTorrent client by intelligently including those features that would bring it some edge. Its full featured HTTP/FTP download manager, the VIP downloading feature, its long-term seeding file sharing protocol and many other additions have truly made it one of the most relevant peer-to-peer apps currently available.

The new 64-bit version is expected to offer a very rewarding experience.

“Our analysis of crash reports has shown that there are many users who have used BitComet for extreme downloading where disk cache sizes were maxing out the abilities of any 32-bit app. So now BitComet x64 has ability to support disk cache up to 16GB, compared to 2GB for 32-bit apps,” says the company.

“The average user probably doesn’t really need it yet, but for those on very fast connections who want to run a large number of tasks that operate primarily within the disk cache, this new ability is perfectly suited,” it adds.
