A seedbox is a high-bandwidth remote server for uploading and downloading digital files from a P2P network. Seedboxes generally use the BitTorrent protocol. Each Seedbox has one or more torrent clients with a web user interface that you can log in remotely, via SSH, web control panel, or smartphone app. In the interface, you can load torrent files or torrent URLs, and once loaded they will start downloading the file(s) associated with it. After the seedbox has acquired the files, people with access to the seedbox can download those files at very high speeds to their personal computers via their home connection. Seedboxes let you download files that have been saved on them via HTTP, FTP, and SFTP.
Seedboxes on high-speed internet connections are typically able to download huge files within minutes, provided that the swarm can actually handle such a high upload bandwidth. Seedboxes are usually connected to a high-speed internet connection. These speeds range from 100Mbps (12.5MB/s) to 10Gbps (1250MB/s). The ability to transfer files so quickly makes them very attractive to the P2P communities.
If an ISP thinks you are using too much of their bandwidth, they will shape your torrent traffic effectively limiting you to a slower speed. A seedbox avoids this by not using torrent traffic on your home internet connection.
Most people who want to use a seedbox find it more cost and time-effective to just pay a monthly subscription fee and reap all the benefits of a seedbox without all the hassle.
A VPS Seedbox is a virtual remote server based on hypervisors like KVM, Xen, OpenVZ, etc, and can be used as a seedbox. Unlike a shared seedbox, a VPS seedbox is completely isolated and has a fixed amount of system resources.
Gigabox is not a VPS-based product. We have a completely unique system based on various native Linux features to isolate every user and their usage. The amount of resources e.g - RAM, CPU you can use is also very flexible.
In the BitTorrent file distribution system, a torrent file or meta-info file is a computer file that contains metadata about files and folders to be distributed, and usually also a list of the network locations of trackers, which are computers that help participants in the system find each other and form efficient distribution groups called swarms.
A torrent file does not contain the content to be distributed; it only contains information about those files, such as their names, folder structure, and sizes obtained via cryptographic hash values for verifying file integrity.
Gigabox is a SaaS product that allows you to install and access many useful applications on your cloud server without installing anything on your device.
A seedbox server is mainly used for high-speed file transfer within a P2P network. You can install any of the supported BitTorrent client(s) to use Gigabox as a seedbox.
Other Use-cases include the following -
Yes, you can install and use zoomuploader to upload files to your cloud storage or you can use rclone for the sync functionality.
We also offer a remote firefox browser that makes uploading files easier to any other unsupported cloud provider.
The best seedbox provider hands down - service is top
After using seed boxes for many years, I was never fully satisfied as most hosts are missing something. Then I found out about GigaRapid on Reddit. I was immediately impressed by what was included for the pricing. The amount of application options is amazing, more than any other host I've used before. Boxes are very responsive and bandwidth is great. Speed is great and consistent. The best part is the service - by far and I mean very far, the service at GigaRapid is the best I've experienced. Without fail, the support team is polite and super responsive. They will go above and beyond to get the issue fixed, the feature added or the advice given to help you. Highly recommended.
Great Servers, Fair Pricings, Awesome Support!
I`m pretty happy with my seedbox service atm, there were a lot of little things I wished to have added, improved, and fixed here and there and They flawlessly got them all done! They really managed to be competitive with other big established seedbox providers! Congrats! They deserve more attention in this particular market! Great Support with a fast helpful response and stable servers with a huge addons list that pretty much leaves nothing to be desired! *thumbs up* cheers.
An excellent service
An excellent seedbox service. Customer experience is top-notch and the value for money is extremely impressive. The servers are very fast, and the interface is clean and making it extremely easy to get everything set up for your needs. Highly recommended.
Great Feature Set for the Price
I have no complaints. The service works and the service works well. Yes, there could be improvements to the interface, but it works fine as it is. I was expecting at such a low price that I'd have to sacrifice quality, but that's not the case. I have been with a lot of hosted solutions, and this is one that is an easy price tag with a load of features.
Excellent service, one of the best Seedbox providers
Excellent seedbox company, and a whole ton of apps that you can use. Customer support is top-notch and queries are always dealt with very promptly with solutions that work. Haven't had any issues dealing with them.
Great Experience. Top-notch service
Great Experience with them. Good selection of apps, great speed. Incredible support. The only drawback was with the bandwidth.
The best cheap seedbox provider I've found
GigaRapid has some very quality servers that give me the flexibility to do whatever I need remotely, with great upload/download speeds. The staff is incredibly responsive on the discord channel, and it's been overall the best seedbox experience I've had. I don't ever have connectivity issues or hardware issues (about a year now). They are constantly upgrading and adding features, and as I said before, I can do almost whatever I need without them with admin access from an ssh terminal. Great servers for novice or advanced Linux users alike. I HIGHLY recommend using these seedboxes for all your remote needs.
Awesome. Giga-rapid supports vnc software like 'makemkv' which other seedbox websites do not offer. I hope you can add plex drive as well. It is definitely one of the best Seedbox providers.
I'm a satisfied customer of GigaRapid since at least 2 years.
The seed box service is very reliable in terms of speed, uptime, features (torrent client GUI, FTP, Web file browser, and many more), and customer care, always quick and responsive... browser has been recently updated, with different BitTorrent clients available, and plenty of apps to install. Definitely recommended!
