Before this tutorial gets any deeper, I want to personally thank Hail for taking the time to write this tutorial, because I would have done it myself but I am so in love with Tunngle that I don’t have the time to work on this article. Btaccel is for legal downloads only. Freeware and shareware downloads are welcome. DO NOT USE this great sevice as a pirate of torrents. Since we don’t want this great online bitorrent client disappear cause of the few that abuse it. Thank you and respect our wishes. ~ Versatile
The Underground’s rating of this great btaccel online client is definetly a 10 out of 10
In this tutorial I will teach you how to use this great online bitorrent client called btaccel and how you can get your torrent download speeds up over 1gbs. Read ahead to learn how to never wait long again for the torrent you want…..
What is btaccel you say…
Btaccel is an online bitorrent client that downloads whatever torrent you want into their cloud servers much like a gmail account, which means that you can get a direct download once the torrent has been available. Getting a torrent this way is alot faster because you no longer have to worry about getting seeds for a connection, it just tells you when the download is available to you. Better yet btaccel will email you once your torrent is available for a direct download.
How do I sign up for btaccel?…
To use Btaccel all you need to do is register for an account(which is free) and login much like you would a normal email account. Go to http://www.btaccel.com and register for an account. Now you may have to wait for a couple days to get an confirmation email so just be patient. Then after using the confirmation email you’ll be able to login.

Using btaccel’s search/Url box…
Now there are a couple different ways to use the search box located at the top of the page on btaccel.com to find what your looking for, I’ll explain it below the 3 ways I would suggest.
1. You could search for a freeware or shareware program by name which will bring you to a typical google search for what you are looking for. This way is not the most effecient because using google to find a good torrent is like finding a needle in a haystack. I do not suggest doing it this way, below are my 2 favorite ways of finding what you want.
2. Search your favorite torrent sites for whatever torrent you are looking for. I like going to sites like legaltorrents because they have a great selection of content. You know exactly what you are getting, and you know it is safe. Once you find what your looking for you can simply copy the URL(web address) and paste it into the search box at btaccel and directly link to that site, bypassing the google search completely.
3. Using Vuze bittorent client’s built in search feature you can search multiple torrent sites at once without the hassle of going to a different torrent site. This is my favorite way of doing this, because with Vuze’s search you can add more sites by searching for templates. Also with vuze it display’s the torrent’s url up top after you select the one you want. Now this is the way I like doing it but if you don’t have vuze or use utorrent I would suggest option #2.
Now I have the URL what do I do…
Just paste the URL into the btaccel search box and it’ll give you a status on that particular torrent. Some torrents will be available right away while others will be qued into your browser and an email will be sent once the site has completed the torrent download. Once it’s out of que just click on the email link it gives you and select the torrent and begin downloading directly. Doing it like this you can get an average of 400kb’s -600kb’s for your download. But like I said before we can increase that speed by double. Read ahead and learn how…
How to optimize Firefox to increase your download speeds to over 1gbs…
Downthemall: This is the must have addon for anyone who uses firefox. Installing this will give you up to 4x download speeds! Now when you click on your torrent available in btaccel you’ll get a pop up box asking how you would like to download the file. Just click dta one click if it’s a single file or downthemall if it’s multiple files and hit save file. Doing this will increase the download speed to over 1gbs and put a smile on your face. The first time I used this I couldn’t believe how fast this simple little addon made my download’s. With the use of downthemall and btaccel no more looking at your speed go from 400kb’s down below 100kb’s ever again. That sounds to good to be true give me downthemall now.

These following addons are a must for anybody who download’s alot…
