I've never used a seed box before as I don't download much. But I want to move my downloading to something more private as I'm currently using torrents from TPB. I don't care about speed or storage space, I just want something that's cheap. http://seed.st/
was the cheapest out of the names that you guys have been throwing around but if you know of any cheaper post here or send me a PM.
I have a few basic questions and assumptions:
I assume that I just log on to their website and the ruTorrent client is web based. It's as easy to use as uTorrent and my downloads are put into a folder that I can access via HTTP/FTP.
I then use IDM to download the files using HTTP/FTP links from the seedbox.
Should I use more encryption than just HTTP/FTP? I have read about sFTP but don't know how this differs to FTP apart from I guess being more 'secure'.
How does the private tracker allocate the uploads of my seedbox to my personal account with the tracker?
I will only be downloading about 10gb per month, so there will be plenty of bandwith to spare. If you guys have any good private communities, flick me a PM.
