Cheap seedbox?

I'm looking for a cheap seedbox. I've never used one before so any experience stories would also be handy. What have you guys used that's been valuable enough to pay per month for?

Comments

  • If this is your first time using a seedbox I would recommend a provider that specializes in it. I have had good success with PulsedMedia. They have some Holiday specials going right now.

    https://pulsedmedia.com/specials.php

    If you feeling froggy and want to create your own seedbox there is an excellent script from Rtinst

    https://github.com/arakasi72/rtinst

    Either way they both can work great when you seed Linux ISO's

    Try our media server plan: https://billing.novos.be/cart.php?a=add&pid=42

    Then use something like this: https://github.com/xombiemp/ultimate-torrent-setup/wiki

    Or any other of the 93712 guides to set one up :smile:

    have a look at https://theworldservers.com they allow seedbox on all packages

    From their TOS:

    The Customer is not allowed to create any additional user accounts within their VPS operating system. If a server is found with 1 or more accounts or the administrator account has been deleted or the password has been changed a £10 charge will be applied to reactivate your server.

    What a weird limitation.

    That does not affect me as I only have one user on the dedicated server I have with them.

    It only applies to VPS and I don't believe the comment was aimed at you, just an observation about a strange policy.

    I recommend Hetzner Cloud (Referral - €20 free)
    I have servers at Hetzner, Scaleway, BuyVM and DataIdeas. Previously at Contabo and OneProvider.

    Isn't it recommended to create a non-privileged account, and lock down root access to the server for security reasons?

    Why not build one yourself? It is not hard to do so. Need a VPS with whatever disk you want and then install Deluged, Deluge-web, SSH. Secure all ports and you are in business.
    I have done it many times over on different locations and all work flowlessly. If you want another layer of protection then buy service from VPN provider. Install the VPN client on the VPS and now traffic is routed via VPN. Also you can use the SOCKS proxy end points directly in the deluge that VPS providers offer.

    Thank you BuyVM, VirMach, and MxRoute for the excellent service.

    You need clean/residential IP that's not blacklisted by your private tracker.

    That is the different problem related to Tracker not the technology. OP didn't mention anything about the IP restriction.

    Yes, but OP wants a seedbox and it's a fair consideration.

    However, some trackers have you register the IP so that sort of moots that point...depends on which trackers you use.

    I have used both UltraSeedbox and PulsedMedia and both are good. US had a spectacular outage last year but they credited accounts, etc.

    That was probably meant for managed service where provider needed a login and doesn't want you adding services or users who would fuck managed services up.

    you're right. Oracle is just a 5 year old kid.

    funny, i had it running for almost 6 months
    and oracle called me personally for advices on improvement
    never had any issue and even the premium instance had not been claimed, almost 4 months lapsed
    and i run xmrig on that instance
    dont comment without actually experience or your account simply too dodgy and oracle had shut it down
    you think oracle is some deadpool host?
