BitLord is a p2p file-sharing program fully compatible with Bittorrent, which is one of the most popular p2p protocol designed for high-speed distribution of 100MB or GB-sized files. BitLord supports simultaneous downloads, download queue, selected downloads in torrent package, fast-resume, chatting, disk cache, speed limits, port mapping, proxy, and IP-filter. Version 1.0 added integrated web browser.

BitLord claims to be “based on the BitComet core”, which seems to imply that it is a fork of BitComet – but in fact it is a near-identical copy modified only to include advertisements. It also replaces BitComet’s list of BitTorrent sites with a search box which only leads to affiliates of BitLord. BitLord has become quite commonly used because many popular BitTorrent sites include advertisements for it.
