I'm in need of a server to seed torrents from, and before I go the DIY route I figured it was worth checking whether there were any pre-configured specialized options that would serve my needs. I've done some quick Google research, but everything I'm finding looks shady and promises things like crazy speeds and unlimited bandwidth at absurdly low prices, which I assume is no more legit when it comes to seedboxes than it is with "unlimited" shared hosting accounts.
Here's a general idea of what I'm looking for:
- A reliable, US-based provider. I intend to use this for entirely legal purposes, and want to avoid dealing with sketchy hosts trying to skirt the law.
- Bandwidth: At least 500 GB/month for uploads, but more is better.
- Port speed: Not particularly important as long as it's fast enough to use my available bandwidth. I'm looking to run nearly constant uploads at steady speeds, so top speed isn't a major concern.
- Simultaneous torrents: At least 4, but more is better.
- Access: FTP to upload and a web UI for the torrent client.
- Budget: Flexible, but cheaper is obviously better. Is under $20/month reasonable for my minimum requirements?
Anyone have any recommendations? Thanks for your help.
