These are my recommended seedbox providers that support torrenting:
- RapidSeedbox — offers “one-click” installs of Deluge, qBitTorrent, ruTorrent, and Transmission — you get root access on your machine. Accepts Bitcoin, 14-day refund policy. €15 euro ($15 USD) month-to-month. More details.
- Gigarapid — all accounts are installed with dedicated servers, and a free VPN is included. There are 90 apps available for one-click installation. Regular accounts cost €6.45 per month, including 700GB of storage and 5TB of outgoing bandwidth.
What is a Seedbox?
A seedbox is a high-speed server for downloading and uploading files. Most people get a seedbox to perform fast torrent or Usenet transfers.
Typically, you will see download speeds from 100Mbps (8 MB/s) to 10Gbps (1250 MB/s) on a seedbox. However, if you are in North America using a Seedbox in Europe, you’ll probably get a maximum of 24 MB/s on a single connection. Opening multiple connections can help.
A seedbox also allows you to avoid ISP throttling and bypass eavesdroppers like the RIAA or MPAA.
Today, several seedbox providers exist — individuals or small companies run most.
How To Use A Seedbox
Generally, seedboxes are set up so you can install Usenet and torrent applications easily.
Once the files are downloaded to the seedbox, they can be downloaded to your computer via HTTP, FTP, or SFTP. You can also directly stream the media from the seedbox with an application like Plex.
Some seedbox providers offer VNC connection or remote desktop protocol on some Windows-based machines. This allows many popular clients to be run remotely.
