    VPS with 250-500GB space for storage and torrent seeding

    Hi!

    I'm looking for a VPS with 250-500GB of hard drive space. I'll be using it to run OwnCloud and as a seedbox on private torrent trackers. I don't have any particular requirements as far as memory and CPU is concerned. I probably won't transfer more than 500GB monthly, but I'd like to go with 1TB to be on the safe side.

    I've been looking at the following Cloud Shards offer on KVM for $7/month and it looks very appealing, but I'm interested to see if anyone else can offer something better:

    • 1 CPU
    • 320MB RAM
    • 500GB RAID50 Disk Space
    • 2TB Traffic @ 1gbit Port
    • 1 IPv4 Address
    • 8 IPv6 Addresses

    If the deal is solid, I might be prepared to pay yearly.

    • VPSDime allow private torrents I think. Otherwise just get a Kimsufi/Online box.

    • Kimsufi?

      They do and I'm actually with them right now. They provide a solid service, but I'm on the lookout for other deals. Kimsufi is really not worth it for me because it's more expensive (especially if you consider the tax) and I don't need a dedicated server because my usage is not that intense.

    • You get more RAM with VPSDime which works well as a cache so it burdens the server less. 320MB is a bit on a low side for that.

      The revisions to the TOS say

      "Torrents, TOR, Mining, IRC, Teamspeak, Minecraft, Starbound, Runescape and Chobots are not allowed."

      In giant letters..

    • @ATHK I'm sure serverian said it in an offer thread he once posted, they would allow torrents (maybe in their EU locations only?) but no public torrents.

    • Look guys, for most providers it's "We don't care what you do, just don't be a dick and get us in trouble or an abuse notice." because proactively looking for torrents is just annoying to customers and a little bit creepy (IMO).

    • Regular plans don't allow Torrents. Storage plans allow private torrents.. it's advertised on the homepage guys..

    • We are talking about storage plan and what you post are all pointing to the regular ones.

      If you bothered to read the post..

      We do not allow

      BitTorrent

      So they have per service TOS's do they? Odd..

      Yes, they do. They previously claimed that private torrent are indeed allowed, but never public torrenting.

      Fair enough, I would like to know how they can monitor the private vs public trackers though. Besides acting on DMCAs.

      TBH I don't think they can, until they receive one.

      I think they said they just block the well known public trackers (e.g. OpenTracker). Use only DHT and PEX, or just use private trackers.

    • I think that @serverian's opinion here will be most worth.

    • They're OOS, anyway.
