1Gbit vs 100Mbps

Bittorrent, by nature, prefers faster peers. So, if you plan on seeding on sites like SCC, BitmeTV and TL, 1gbit would be the way to go. Also, TL and SCC are filled with OVH boxes, so, if you get one of that, internal transfer between OVH takes place which is damn fast and hence you end up seeding more. :)

thank you very much :)

ovh doesnt seem to have all that competitive pricing... nor too many 1gbit boxes (perhaps im not looking hard enough) will i really notice a big difference using a OVH to seed here or if i got another 1Gbit box elsewhere in euro to seed?

Sorry for all the n00besque questions just new to the seedbox gAME

thanks again and have a great day

ohh and i see USA / Euro which would be better?

and yet another thing im starting to see 10Gbit boxes... thats just over kill right? hard drives are not gonna be able to write that speed but i guess its for upload.. but 10Gbit over kill or worth the extra $5 from Seedunlimited

Just so you know, OVH is NOT a seedbox provider. They provide hosting/dedicated servers. There are a few seedbox provider reselling OVH servers as seedboxes, but there's plenty of others. There's a big difference between seedbox providers and companies like OVH in means of pricing and options.

Whether you take a seedbox in the US or EU highly depends on where you live. If you live in the US and your seedbox is in the EU, your FTP speeds will most likely suck (and vice versa).

I have a dedicated server from OVH and it's 1Gbit as a seedbox. I used to have 100Mbit and yes it did become a bottleneck at some point, but I rarely pass the 12MB/s on this server.

So do you need 1Gbit? Guess that depends on how dedicated you are to torrenting.

1g will have upto 30 to 35mbps max which is what i get and down will go up to 40 this is unshared net i test it on ftp upload not seeds

and as far for shareing in localnetwork these companys have firberlink connected each others so leaseweb to ovh will have same speed like ovh to ovh transfer depends on hd speed

Hey. Seedbox noob here :P

What about uploading to file sharing site? Say, I download a torrent using a seebox provided by a SB provider. How will I go about uploading? I have sucky internet connection at home soo...

By file sharing site do you mean DDL?

A seedbox is essentially a torrent client e.g. uTorrent that you access via a browser so the interface is slightly different but it's near enough uTorrent. A dedicated server is like leasing a whole c drive complete with operating system that you can do what you want with browse, torrent, save your files etc.

The whole reason people have seedboxes is because they are in places with better internet than they have access to at home and/or they help circumvent ISP restrictions e.g throttles.

So you pay your money to a company who hires you out a portion of a hard drive, or a whole hard drive on machine and it's got much better connectivity than your home connection e.g. the dedi I just bought has 90Mbps downstream and 40Mbps upstream. I don't get that sort of speed at home. So you download and seed your torrents like you would at home, only better because of the better speeds (so boosting your ratio) then you use an FTP client to bring the downloads back to your home connection at whatever speed you usually suffer c/o your ISP and then you watch them, burn it to disk, archive it, whatever, the torrent tracker interaction is done on the seedbox.

If you just grab warez and music a small seedbox (portion of hard drive) would suit you, if you want full size blu-ray and DVD-R boxsets then you need to be looking at a larger hard drive.

As a price guide I pay €30/month for a 1TB seedbox and I regularly max 10Mbps up and down if the torrent swarms are busy. Providing I join the swarm early on (most leechers with under 30% completion) I have no problem with achieving a ratio of 3 or more on the download.

You can find 200Gb size seedboxes for less than €10 a month. Prices vary depending on how much space you want, how fast the connection is, the spec of the machine doing the torrenting and how long a commitment you make to the seedbox provider - a one month lease vs. annual etc.

Hope that helps you get your head around it a bit.

Are you able to share which provider you use for the 1TB box @ 30/month?
