    FAQ

    What is a Dedicated Server? A dedicated hosting service, dedicated server, or managed hosting service is a type of Internet hosting where the client leases an entire server not shared with anyone.

    What is a Seedbox? Is bittorrent terminology for a dedicated server that is used to upload and download torrents. Seedboxes are usually purchased by uploaders and torrent communities to get the latest content at high speeds.

    How do I use the dedicated server/seedbox? A Dedicated Server/Seedbox is very simple to use, once you have purchased and fully paid for the dedicated server/seedbox, the service provider will send you the following:
    • The Server IP Address
    • The Server Username
    • The Server Password


    Using these things you can log on to your server using remote desktop.
    You can download RDP at: Download Here
    (Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) is a multi-channel protocol that allows a user to connect to a computer running Microsoft Terminal Services.) You can access remote desktop on your Windows PC by going to:

    1. On your home computer, click Start, point to All Programs, and then point to Accessories.
    2. In the Accessories menu, point to Communications, and then click Remote Desktop Connection.


    Then type the IP Address for the Server provided by the Hosting company, click connect and you will be taken to a log in screen, similar to the OS the server is running. Log in and that is it, you now have access to your server.

    Note: For all Dediboxes, fee apply if you want to run a Windows OS, they only provide linux OS free.

    Also note that these Dediboxes are not that strict about running torrents, but if they catch you due to excessive use or abuse of bandwidth they will close your dedibox without refund.

    Dediboxes also have random checks and police raids.

    Ive Had Dediboxinternationa, Bestofdata, and Dedihostplus, if you enable encryption and keep the bw below 3TB a month it gives you a better chance under to keep under the radar.


    DEDICATED SERVERS/SEEDBOXES

    The Following are my Top 5 Choices for Best Dedicated Servers.

    Number 5: V E C T O R A L

    I personally havent used this company, but i have heard nothing but great things from them. They too offer cheap, reliable servers at competitive prices.

    Dedicated Servers

    Server: 4.5/5
    Network: 3.5/5

    NUMBER 4:M O X I E H O S T I N G

    Moxiehosting understands that customers are unique and therefore they provide true flexibility in a wide range of server options and upgrades with realistic pricing. The Network is never oversold ensuring everyone has the bandwidth when they need it. They offer unmetered bandwidth as well.

    Dedicated Servers


    Server: 4.5/5
    Network: 4.5/5



    Number 3: L A Y E R E D T E C H

    Hmm, layered tech one of the best server that i have ever used, i dont think there was a time i didnt max out my speed, with their 100Mbit i could easily reach 11-12 mb/s. They have a great turn around time, i got my server in less than 5, 6 hours.

    Dedicated Servers


    Server: 4.5/5
    Network: 5/5


    Number 2: S O F T L A Y E R

    This is probably one of the best server that i have ever used, Softlayer is the best of the best, nothing more to say, maxed out connections 24/7. Note Softlayer is the most expensive server ive purchased only because i upgraded to a higher bandwidth and network speed. You have got to purchase one to know how amazing their server and network is, the speeds are phenomenal and the service is phenomenal. This is why ScT, FTN, FSC, all Top site uploaders and torrent sites purchase SoftLayer, because your getting what you paid for.

    Server: 5/5
    Network: 5/5

    Number 1: L E A S E W E B

    This is the best hosting company, why else would torrent sites such as TL and SCC host there. They provide excellent support and excellent dedicated Server service. They have top-notch servers with one of the best network, you will get great speeds no matter what.

    Dedicated Servers

    Server 5/5
    Network 5/5

    wow, excellent post man, I have been thinking about getting one, so this is some usefull stuff indeed.
    One question, it seemed that all of them (atleast the cheaper ones) has metered bandwith.
    http://english.keyweb.de/dedicated/index.shtml this one have unmetered and is cheaper than most of those, but I guess there is a reason for that. I would like unmetered, you think that one is ok? why/why not. maby other places offer unmetered?

    anyways, two thumps up for this post

    alot of them dedibox and resellers are the cheapest unmetered.

    and it also depends on what you want, alot of hosts provide 10Mbit Unmetered for around $150USD/month, 100Mbit Unmetered costs upwards of $1000/month for a truly unmetered.
