We’ve covered DigitalHive tracker in the past but that was before DH v2.0 was rolled out. Now is the best time for another update as Digital Hive is currently having it’s first extended open signup since the launch of new version. Over 3 three years old, DH is a veteran general/0day tracker that is well respected in the BitTorrent scene. As some of you might be aware, Digital Hive went through a major site overhaul last July. DH v2.0 introduced a completely new user interface (not Gazelle, but heavily modified TBDEV/TorrentStrike) as well as an auto uploader bot leading to better pre times and more torrents.
If you were an old member of this tracker, you’ll immediately notice the visual enhancements the site has gone through. A sleek user interface combined with search clouds, clean category icons, drop down menus will pretty much make you instantly like the new look (if you don’t , there are about 7 other themes to choose from). However, DH 2.0 is not all about looks – they now have a fully functional autouploader bot that can upload scene releases to the tracker in a matter of seconds. Naturally, this has significantly increased the number of torrents uploaded per day.
Speaking of scene releases, Digital Hive is not a scene-only tracker such as SCC or ScT – you can find both scene and p2p content here. Something I noticed is that DH has a large number of torrent packs compared to other general trackers. At last check, there were over 275 packs (TV, Movie, etc) available for download - their uploaders have certainly been busy.
At the time this article was written, Digital Hive tracked over 3800 active torrents and had a registered user base of over 11000 members. As we mentioned earlier, the site is currently open for signup:
As most of you are aware we are now Open Signups, this is for a limited time only, tell your friends or family to join up!
DO NOT SIGNUP MORE THEN ONE ACCOUNT FROM THE SAME IP ADDRESS!
The site will automatically prune users who haven't logged in > 90 days. If you want to keep your account please make sure you stay active!
The current open signup period should further boost DH’s user base and increase the activity on indexed torrents. This is the first extended open signup since the launch of DH 2.0 (other than random pruning) – don’t expect it to last forever so get in while you can.
