FAQ Frequently Asked Questions
What is a seedbox?
A seedbox is a remote server at a high-speed data center with a public dedicated IP address that is used to safely downloading and uploading files using torrents at very high speeds. These speeds range from 1Gbps (12MB/s) to 10Gbps (1250MB/s). People with access to a Seedbox can download these files to their personal computers anonymously with their own maximum speed. Simply put, you get a share of a computer that has a super fast internet connection. The sole function of this computer is to download and upload torrents. There are numerous benefits to downloading torrents using a seedbox.
How do I manage my seedbox?
Each Seedbox has one or more torrent clients with web user interface that you can log into via any browser where you can control your Seedbox remotely. In the interface, you can load torrent files or torrent URLs and once loaded they will start downloading immediately and will seed the torrent afterward, once again, remotely with no tracks to the local desktop IP of the Seedbox user. Once the torrent has downloaded on the Seedbox, it’s hosted there waiting for you to download it whenever you wish. Downloading is commonly done via an FTP or SFTP connection to the Seedbox using an FTP Client, SSH/SCP, Browser Download , or using Resilio Sync. Either way, this prevents any torrent traffic from coming from your home internet connection but instead, you only initiate legitimate FTP/HTTP traffic that your ISP (Internet Service Provider) should permit.
How long does it take for my account to be set up after signing up?
