Looking for a cheap storage VPS for very low usage private seedbox (~200GB disk)

My current seedbox is extremely underused (and since it's my seedbox I don't want to mix with any other usage either). So I was thinking to go for something cheaper that is in line with my usage pattern.

Current setup (with what dashboard says about usage pattern of last 1 year - approx values):

  • RAM: 1GB
  • Disk: 1TB (average ~100GB; max: ~330GB)
  • Speed: 400 Mbps (~100 kbit/s IN and ~600kbit/s OUT)
  • B/w limit : 4 TB (total monthly usage was usually around ~70-80GB; max ~300GB in one month)
  • Current cost: Euro 2.15/month (I pay for 2 years at once). 25.8 Euro ~ 30 USD/year

I use it only for private ones. I adds download like 5-10 times a month max.
Unlike earlier I now use it only when there's something niche I need to find and it's not anywhere else. Earlier I would just hoard and hoard and ratio and shit, now I don't.


So I am looking for a lot cheaper storage VPS with a lot less resources than mentioned above but for the same purpose (as mentioned above: private only, very low usage seedbox). I am not sure if I can get one, but just want to check around.

  • Disk: 200GB
  • RAM: anything around 512MB is fine.
  • Speed: >= 200Mbps
  • B/w limit: 1-2TB monthly should be good enough (if it's a really cheap VPS then even 500GB is fine I guess)
  • Cost: I am here to find out.

Are there any cheap options (preferably in EU) I can move to? Any idea how cheaper than this I can get?

PS. I cannot stop people from making snarky remarks but if there's anything I should have posted differently please let me know and I will update the post :)

  • check liteserver.nl openvz storage vps. $12/yr after discount with lowest plan.

    Do they allow private tracker seedbox? They mention this Torrent (legal usage only) -- what does it mean really?

    I've a box with them but it's costly for 200GB disk (~20 Euro per year; almost as much as I pay for 1TB Time4VPS).

    And if you meant their OVZ-STOR-128 then it's again not that attractive 100GB disk and 128MB RAM even at that price. Is that what you meant?

    Do you ignore DMCA? Send me link for offer?

  • Ignore DMCA? The interpretation of the term is ambiguous; ignore DMCA for false complaints, or ignore DMCA as you're downloading illegal content?

    I suspect it's the latter, so as a result, few providers will accomodate this. Else, you should be able to find a competent provider pretty easily.

    If you had a special deal, why not to stay with the same provider? Who cares what you had in past? I bought once iPad Pro 9.7” on special deal for £180, can you match that price?

    Hi,

    Can 128mb ram handle swizzin or rtinst? Do you mind telling how many torrents are loaded in your box?

    Do not know. i have rtorrent cli from ubuntu repos on a 256mb ram storage vps. I've personally never loaded more than 11 isos at once to be polite, to the very friendly owner of liteserver. NL.
