    Cloud storage for your torrents.
    Rather than download the torrent to your pc you link it to your seedbox.
    When it's don you download the complete file in one go to your pc.

    I thought it was a new cyber space financial transaction mechanism and some are making mega fortunes out of it.

    Sat in a business meeting last week and the people at the table speaking were celebrating their financial successes.

    Fvcked if I understand it though!

    Seedbox is when you roger someone up the backside in order to teach them a lesson.

    seedboxes are great for increasing your ratio on private tracking sites.

    I told you up there^^^^^^

    You open an account and your torrent client runs on their server, so it's running 24/7 whether your computer is on or not. Whatever you download is stored on their servers also.
    When a file is done you download it directly, which is much faster than torrenting.
    If you are on a torrent site that demand you upload a certain amount, you can let the file keep seeding without effecting your local net connection or storage.
    Some benifits which you pay for. but as ISP's are under more and more pressure to crack down on torrenting, this is probably going to be the next big step as all your torrenting is done away from their supervision.

    So basically you pay someone to store shit that you could download yourself for free.

    Cleeevvvvveeeer.

    One of the main reasons for seedboxes is for those of us trying to avoid getting busted by the powers that be for D/L copyrighted material. It is the same reason we have private trackers.

    A seedbox protects you as you do not have to d/l the file directly to you IP address. I have gotten letters from HBO's lawyers in the past and my ISP cut off my internet access. I was D/L files directly from public trackers to my home IP address. I no longer do that as the private tracker/seedbox route is vastly superior. The quantity and quality of torrents on private trackers is far far better then what is on public trackers. The private torrent sights also have strict rules for seeding and uploading ensuring that you get your D/L fast.

    I now have a couple of seedboxes that have 1gb/s up and down speeds. That is far faster then my current ISP provides. On some private trackers you will HAVE to have a seedbox to build ratio or you may get banned. They are far better than using your home PC as you can be constantly seeding torrents 24/7 without disrupting the bandwidth available on your home network.

    Bottom line is that seedboxs and private trackers are for the advanced user that has experience with torrents. Only n00bs use public trackers like pirategay.

    Thanks for the information, I will definitively check the forum you recommend, it seems to have a lot of information I'm looking for there.

    There are still some points I'd like to clarify with you. As some have already pointed out, there are a lot of public trackers that offer good service. I've 2 TB of various stuff and I'm quite happy with EZTV, KAT, TPB and the like. The only limitation I find with them is for specialized search like lossless music or specific domains like old (and recent) Asian movies. But as I'm not member of any private tracker, is it something that I miss ?

    Regarding the seedbox, I get the general idea, thank you, but what I wanted to know is, as for the trackers, are all the offers you can find on Google equal ? Most of them are not free, I'm a bit worry to send my credit card details to a company whose main purpose is to cheat the movie industry, if you see what I mean. What are the important points to look for when you chose a seedbox ?
    The things we regret most is the things we didn't do

    Yes those things specifically are where private trackers excel. what.cd is an excellent private tracker for lossless music. They will require you to take an interview if you pass you will get in. I would recommend starting out with a tracker like IPT.com. It is a huge general tracker with tons of high quality content. It is a good starting point to break into private trackers. Keep in mind they are private for good reason to keep the riffraff out and to require its membership to give back and seed torrents properly so that everyone benefits.

    I would look on the website that I posted up to research seedboxes. There are plenty of reviews and price breakdowns. I use ultraseedbox.com and pay with paypal. I find them to be excellent with great tech support. But there are even better deals to be had but they may not have the support. So do your research.

    Watch for your upload speeds first as the whole point is to use the box to seed torrents and build ratio. I prefer 1gbps up speeds, but 500mbps would do in a pinch. Also lookout for bandwidth caps. Also, if you are trying to build ratio only seed fresh torrents. That's the best way to build ratio on a private tracker.

    I may have an invite or two for IPT but will only give them out once I am satisfied that you will seed everything back to at least a 1:1 ratio preferably better. I am responsible for the invites I give away and do not want to be in trouble because I gave an invite to a bum who doesn't seed back.

    Thanks for the offer. I totally understand and agree with your position. Actually that's why I was inquiring about the seedbox at the first place. Let me check everything first. Then I'll let you know what I intend to do, and how. If you're comfortable with that we can talk further if you're still interested to give away an invite.

    You are a moron harry flapping his trap about something he clearly knows nothing about. You look as stupid as buttplug right now. I would check out of the thread now if I was you. Go twaddle around on Usenet or pirategay noob.
