  • Seed.ST - 200GB from $2/w OR $6/m - instant setup

    Login
    You can login and also see more plans and availability at Seed.ST - High Performance Seedbox Hosting. You may login immediately after you pay.

    Solid State Drives
    Many of our plans utilize SSD's (solid-state drives) instead of traditional hard drives. SSD's have SIGNIFICANTLY higher throughput and random read/write speeds than normal hard disks. At any company offering seedbox services on standard hard drives at 1gbit, you can expect to see a maximum of 50MB/s download and 20-50MB/s upload (usually much lower), shared between all the users on the server. At Seed.ST the maximums are 112MB/s download and upload on 1gbit and 540MB/s download and upload on 10gbit.

    All servers include
    Instant automatic setup
    Hosted at Telehouse Germany
    Unlimited Upload/Download speed, no caps.
    Unlimited active torrents
    ruTorrent web interface with all plugins (RSS downloader, ratio manager, create torrent, etc.)
    FTP/FXP (SSL/TLS and unencrypted) access.
    SSH access is not allowed.
    Public Trackers (thepiratebay, etc) not allowed.
    autodl-irssi plugin (not available on 100mbps plans)

    SSD plans (much faster, recommended)
    1gbps SSD
    200GB SSD space (up to 400GB available)
    40MB/s average upload speed
    $25.00 per month OR $7.00 per week

    Traditional HDD plans
    100mbps MINI
    200GB HDD space

    $50.00 per month or $15.00 per week
    View Details

    Setup and Disk Space Quotas
    Setup is instant and automatic, after you subscribe via paypal or credit card it will immediately take you to the login page for your ruTorrent. If you go over your disk space quota (the amount of disk space your plan has) your download speed will be limited to 1kb/s, your torrents will not be stopped and your upload will continue to run normally. Once you delete some files the download speed will be restored automatically within a few seconds.

          Yep, sorry, I've offered standard hard drive plans, hybrid plans, and hybrid SSD-caching plans (ZFS L2ARC, Adaptec maxCache RAID) in the past and I've found that the only way to consistently guarantee good service on high-bandwidth connections is SSD-only.

          I will be offering 10gbps servers later in the year as well and the only thing you can use for those is SSD's.

          Most likely, I will increase the space offered on these plans later once the servers are at capacity as well. (probably 60 or 75GB maximum) But right now I need to establish a baseline for real-world usage.

            Ok fair enough. Do you accept customized orders? For example, instead of 50 GB for 25$, something like 100 GB for 50$. Also, the SSH access is user restricted or you give root privileges as well? I'm asking coz i'm looking for OVH VPS-like slices with the ability to install custom software like vpn, vncserver etc.

              I can definitely do larger sizes for more money, but I can't do VPS's like you need. The shell account would not be a superuser account it would be your regular user account without root privileges.

              I'd suggest OVH vps'es - they've just had a refresh and they are offering more bang for your buck and no setup fees.

              Other good vps providers are vps.net and linode.com, I use them both personally.

                I have developed a JSON API for Seed.ST, for more advanced users.

                Here's a little documentation about it:
                All JSON results have a "success" key which will be true or false.


                To get your API KEY go here:
                https://www.seed.st/api/getkey/<username>?password=<password>


                There are only two API functions right now (bold are returned keys):
                https://www.seed.st/api/<apikey>/getspeed - returns your up and down speed for all torrents on your account.
                https://www.seed.st/api/<apikey>/getspeed?hash=<infohash> - returns your up and down speed for torrent with the specified info hash (on ST you can find info hash on the torrent details page).


                https://www.seed.st/api/<apikey>/addtorrent?url=<torrentURL> - attempts to add a torrent to your seedbox at the specified URL. It will be successful if an ATTEMPT is successfully made. If the URL or torrent file are invalid the API will not tell you.


                Please give me more suggestions on ways to integrate with ST, and more API function suggestions.

                Additionally, if you have a SuperTorrents account, you can link your seedbox to ST to add a 'download to seedbox' icon on the browse page, as well as other future integrations.

                  Using and for now it's ok, will report later :D

                  Got max. ~60MB/sec of DL and ~35MB/sec of upload, it's ok but could be better.
                  Main problem is small disk space, can't get on to bigger torrents ;)

                    1gbit slots are currently sold out. Should be some more next week, but keep checking back as current subscribers sometimes cancel.

                    10gbit SSD servers coming online tonight or early tomorrow at $40 per month or $12 per week.
                    Specs are the same just 10gbit instead of 1gbit. 540MB/s maximum upload speed (limited by 2x270MB/s Intel 320 SSD's)

                    Order 10gbit slots here when they are available:

                    Probably your swarm, the server you are on is very underloaded - you should be able to get 90MB/s upload easily.

                          Was testing it with rTorrent, and I don't think it is up to the task of 10gbit, I'm in the process of testing other torrent clients.

                          ---------- Post added at 04:47 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:46 PM ----------

                          10gbit seedboxes are now available for $40/month or $12/week, with a caveat.
                          After thorough research and testing it appears there are no bittorrent clients that have multi-threaded file i/o, so the torrent is limited by the speed of one CPU (there are 16 of them in the server). One CPU seems to be able to handle roughly 110MB/s of file I/O (and I assume file verification) while downloading in all of the clients I've tried (Deluge, rTorrent, uTorrent, Transmission).


                          What this means is:
                          Your account will be limited to 110MB/s DOWNLOAD.
                          Your UPLOAD should be relatively unaffected, I have seen up to 210MB/s in my testing at 65% CPU usage. 400MB/s is theoretically possible on very low latency internal links (other servers at OVH).

                          Order here:
                          https://www.seed.st/order10.php

                          1
                          0gbit servers are named with an 'x' designator, for example the first server is accessible at https://eux1.seed.st/rutorrent
