    Pretty essential if u have a crappy home connection. I've had one for a few years but never really use the space or bandwidth limits. Helps with seeding and passing those ghastly tests that pop up every now and then.

    Its pretty cool never to have to worry about ratio ever on a tracker!

    I want to do something like this, but have no idea how, lol
    Anyways i just use the seedbox to get me a buffer, then i just cancel it.
    How much would you save renting a vps or dedi? or did you mean serious as in crazy good speeds?

    There are tutorials available, but you need some decent previous knowledge of the Linux command-line, and time to get your hands dirty. With "serious", I mean having control over everything and being able to install, change or remove whatever you want on your server, without being limited to a seedbox provider's set of choices. Of course, most normal human beings would rather trade that in exchange for something that works out of the box and doesn't require active maintenance, which is fine

    Savings would depend on which provider you go for, of course. You can find a VPS for as little as $2/mo., but the disk space and traffic limits are probably not worth it. A good one might start at $10 a month.

    before you start shelling out your hard-earned dough, you could create your own seedbox at home by installating Linux in a virtual machine. since it can take ages to acquire all the knowledge needed to properly understand manage your seedbox, as rightly pointed out by anon, you don't have to pay for a seedbox in the meantime.

    I did that and I stopped after 4 hours.
    I personally despise command line. we're in 2016, I ain't typing commands no more
    I did enough of that in the early 90's on MS DOS.

    Ideally, a dedi running windows would be great but that adds 30+ euros a month. you might as well pay Netflix, Amazon, Hulu for less.

    I know a dude who has a seedbox, and all he uses are rutorrent (which is GUI based, not command line), and then he FTPs the files back and forth. So why do you guys talk about a seedbox as if it's something complicated you'll SSH into and use terminal all day long?

    I use seedbox for seeding torrents on many trackers. I use filezilla for transferring some of the files which i need to my pc.

    There are seedbox scripts to create one with ease, but you still need the knowledge, because if something goes wrong you can't open a support ticket to say your torrent client isn't running.

    Also, MS-DOS does not compare to the power of the Unix shell

    Ideally, a dedi running windows would be great but that adds 30+ euros a month. you might as well pay Netflix, Amazon, Hulu for less.

    yeah, those are pre-set/prepared seedboxes, ready for usage, no need to install anything or bother with the command line


    Parable of the Two Birds

    Two birds, beautiful of wings, close companions, cling to one common tree: of the two one eats the sweet fruit of that tree; the other eats not but watches his companion. The self is the bird that sits immersed on the common tree; but because he is not lord he is bewildered and has sorrow. But when he sees that other who is the Lord and the beloved, he knows that all is His greatness and his sorrow passes away from him...
