What is a Seedbox?
A seedbox is a dedicated, high-speed server. Most people rent seedboxes to achieve very fast torrent transfers. Not everyone needs a seedbox — if you share a lot of files, and want to get a good ratio on on a private BitTorrent tracker, consider getting one. Seedboxes also avoid ISP throttling and bypass eavesdroppers like the RIAA or MPAA.
Personally, I find it easier to download directly from the Usenet.
