A seedbox is a way for people to use bittorrent and/or other types of peer-to-peer file-sharing on a remote server rather than on their personal computer at home.
It typically allows them to download files faster, upload to other users faster, share more files (and bigger files) at one time, share files for longer periods of time, avoid using their home IP address, and have it all running 24/7.
A seedbox can download a 1gb media file in less than a minute, contrast that with you own computer’s performance.
A seedbox is usually a VPS (virtual private server) or dedicated server, already configured and installed with the necessary bittorrent software. This pre-configured server means all the donkey work is done for you and all you have to do is log-in and start torrenting.
Seedbox providers are much the same as any other hosting company except they offer separate dedicated seedbox servers kept apart from their regular web servers. As most low-end VPS packages can’t handle the excessive use of heavy torrent users, seedbox packages are specifically customized for that purpose allocating considerably more space and bandwidth.
