    im wondering how much these run, and for how long most people get them. i figure a 1 month seedbox would be more than enough to get my ratio skyrocketed on a few sites.

    how much would a month cost at a cheap but reputable seedbox site?

    and how does it work usually? do you just send them your torrent files thru ftp or what?

    depends if u want ur own server or a cheaper slot like webui or flux slot.
    you can get ur own dedicated for 34pound a month from me if your not in a eu country.
    or u could try a cheaper 10$ slot to start with.
    look around the seedbox forum and ul see plenty.
    read the reviews. :-)

    yeah, one month or two, and you can sleep like a rock for one year or more.

    lots of offers, slayer2005 has a good reputation on his boxes, why don't you give him a try.
    keep in mind aspects such as the max number of torrents, hdd space and traffic.

    it sounds good, im going to do some research but just have a few general questions anyway.

    how do access my seedbox and how do i know if everything is working right? do i connect to it thru remote desktop?

    yes, thru RDC if it is windows.
    if it is Linux is via VNC, which is basically the same thing.

    if it's shared, you have only access either to the utorrent webui or the torrentflux frontend, depending on the packages. Plus a FTP account to transfer / FXP stuff to your PC.

    wow this sounds amazing, so what do you do if you want to get upload credit for more than one site? i guess its important to pick out popular torrents that have a lot off leechers.

    yes, you can actually download the file from one site and seed it there and at several others. just download the torrents from the sites where you want to seed at, force a recheck, and voila, you are seeding instantly.
    Popular TV series, PC games and HD movies do the trick. forget about music and apps.

    I think 3 months is enough.

    really? i was thinking 1. it seems like most of these seed at 11mb/s right?

    i cant see anyone having the need for more than 11/s for 1 month
