    I found another forum, kind of like FST but its Malaysian. What they are doing over there is starting up not-for-profit tflux hosting.

    For example one guy, has been successful for 8 months. One of the servers is:

    Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E6420
    2 GB RAM
    1x 500 GB SATA HDD
    1000 Mbps Unmetered

    I think its an FDC server, but everyone is really happy with stability and speed.

    Packages look like:

    8GB Diskspace $10
    10gb Diskspace $12

    The guy has 30 pages of comments and people are renewing so he's making it work by having control of the number of people per server and the fact that there are no profit margin involved.

    Any thoughts? Maybe someone could start an FST community thing seeing how so many people are looking for seedboxes nowadays?

    Guess this country:
    -Child porn is legal to possess.
    -Home of lolicon & enjo kosai
    -Subways are littered with "Warning: Perverts lurking" signs
    -Has women only subway cars because of the high sexual assault rates
    -Cartoon child porn is a $6 billion industry
    -90% of child porn on the internet is from this country
    -Ranked equally with Cambodia and Ethiopia for prostitution

    Regarding Submission's post, it sounds like a good idea, but there are a lot of people here who would want seedboxes, and it could end up costing a lot of money, especially if it's "not for profit".

    Regarding the second post by "wewillhostit," your plans sound decent for someone who wants to seed a few torrents here and there. The unlimited bandwidth sounds good, but as good business practice, I would inform the people the speed they will be getting on these torrents. As well as FTP, I think it's necessary; setting up an FTP account with each torrentflux account shouldn't be that difficult or time-consuming; should be a 5-10 minute affair each time. Other than that you look like a decent host and we'll see, I might even test you guys out once you get your FTP set up

    they didn't built Rome in one day

    Somewhere I heard this name called brandon
    I've learned that it takes years to build up trust,
    and it only takes suspicion, not proof, to destroy it.

    I am proud to be a part of this communities.

    Pics of speeds and info on how many people are on each server would be nice...
