Introduction of Magnet Link
Adding a magnet link to download files to Amazon S3 is indeed a very bold idea. This article will tell you how to implement this process. Before that, you should first understand what a magnet link is.
Those who follow BitTorrent technology know that torrent and magnet link are both good ways to obtain various resources. Using torrents and magnet links, you can get the resources you want in different places, such as video and audio. Based on a P2P sharing network, users can download files to the local easily and quickly.
Unlike torrents, magnet links are just links. They have no files associated with them, but only data. Links are an evolving URI standard used mainly by the P2P network. They are different from URLs, for example, they do not store information about the location of resources, but information about the content of one or more files they link to.
Technically speaking, the magnet link is composed of a series of parameters, which contain various data in no specific order.
Advantages to Transfer Files from Magnet Link to Amazon S3
Easier to Download Files
For various types of files, you can directly download the files to the cloud drive through the magnet link, and the download speed is faster than other methods during the download process.
If you use some magnet link downloaders to download files, usually, your download speed will be limited due to node problems. Furthermore, the downloader can only download files to the local, if you want to transfer files to a cloud drive, you have to find another way.
Easier to Use and Share
If you choose to add a magnet link to transfer files to Amazon S3, the cloud drive becomes a tool for you to store files, and you will no longer worry that your computer disk space is insufficient.

The file is downloaded directly to the cloud drive by a server, and your computer and IP address are not registered during the download. If you use some third-party magnet link downloaders, your computer IP may be exposed.
