Santrex offer both web hosting and seedboxes, but don’t let that put you off, I believe every seedbox has a web hosting operation behind the woodwork. I ended up going for the rtorrent basic plan, at $29 per month. It’s not cheap, but yuou get what you pay off and with Santrex you get quality. Unlimited downloads, Unlimited torrents, rottrent webgui (IMO the best). Also 150GB of storage space. if you ask me that’s more than plenty.
What can I say? Performance is absolutely phenomenal, pictures says a thousand words, so here’s a cool screen shot with a blistering 7.5MB/s upload speed
Summary of Santrex
- Max torrent download speed: ~15mb/s [my package limit]
- Max torrent upload speed: 512kb/s [close to my package limit]
- Typical/average torrent upload speed: ~350kb/s
- FTP download speed: max my ISP will allow
I really like the rtorrent webgui over utorrent, and I selected rtorrent for several reason, lower memory footprint than utorrent, Has unzip/unpack functionality on the webgui, this is perfect for redistribution scene releases on a conventional tracker. Otherwise you’d have to download the zipped files, unpack, and reupload. Which will take forever on the home internet connection. The ability to download via http from the webgui means you don’t have to bother with ftp for small downloads too.
