What is a seedbox?
A seedbox is a remote server that has great internet speed which can be used to download files while maintaining anonymity over the internet. Put it simply it is a remote computer that has a torrent application running on it and you can upload the torrent file on this computer and it will start downloading for you. You can also transfer the downloaded content from the remote computer(seedbox) to your PC with encryption so that your ISP is unaware of what you are downloading online.
Evoseedbox provides the best seedbox as far as VPSs are concerned. Their servers are located in the Netherlands so they can provide a great amount of speeds. It provides HDD storage ranging from 150GB to 8001GB. Their plans are divided into two categories: Premium plans and Box + PLex plans. Premium plans are offered as Budget-friendly plans. While the Box + PLex plans are for hardcore torrenting users who want to download and upload a large number of files and also want to stream high-quality content on regular basis. You can find the plan details as shown below:
Evoseedbox – premium plans :
Evoseedbox – Box + Plex plans:
So basically they have a plan for every customer’s needs and budget requirements. They also provide a large variety of apps on both premium and Box + Plex plans but the latter plans have more numbers of apps compared to the former as it has larger HDD space and bandwidth. In terms of network bandwidth, they provide 10Gb/s bandwidth which will allow you to download torrent at amazing speeds. Plex is offered in all the plans except the most basic Evo-blitz plan. But if your main usage is plex streaming then we recommend you to go for any of the Box + Plex plans as they are specifically configured for Plex. It also provides Google drive integration where you can upload files from seedbox to your google drive. And you can also manage your torrent remotely using electorrent. The best part of Evoseedbox is their support. You can read their knowledge base for setting up seedbox and if you are stuck somewhere you can chat live with the support team. In case you have any billing or technical query you can also open a ticket and they usually respond to tickets in a couple of hours. And the best part is they provide a 7-day trial period under which if you are not satisfied with the product you can choose to cancel and get a complete refund.
We have kept Seedbox.io as the second choice of seedbox provider because of many good reasons. One of the most important reasons is it provides affordable services packed with a good amount of features. The most advanced package offers 1230GB of storage while the basic plan offers 600GB of storage. You can also buy a dedicated server with SSDs.As far as price is concerned it is the only which offers competitive prices for the dedicated servers as well as shared seedboxes in our cheap seedboxes range.
The downside of seedbox.io is that their support is only reachable through mails and tickets and no chat support is available for the time being. Their network consists of Level3, Telia, NTT, GTT, Zayo, Core-Backbone, Seaborne, and direct peering using AMS-ix, LINX, DE-CIX. They also provide FTP clients for downloading files from seedbox with OpenVPN provided builtin. The speed of installation and access time on their server is quick and has fast responses which is a good thing for a seedbox but it is still slower than Evoseedbox comparing the app installations and setup time.

Rapid seedbox is one of the oldest seedbox providers. They provide great speed in download as well as uploads due to the reason that their servers are hosted in both France and Netherlands. But the speed required for downloading files from seedbox to PC is not up to the mark as it starts at a good speed initially but degrades as time passes. Their plans also give details about the RAMs offered in each plan. For larger amounts of torrenting and seeding you need to have bigger RAM.

Advantages of having a seedbox
One of the biggest advantages of having a seedbox is you get very high bandwidth and a very high-speed connection for torrent downloading which cannot be possible at the home network. You can download a file of tens of GBs in a matter of minutes. Also, seeding speeds are enormous which provides a huge advantage while seeding.All this at a very reasonable price.
Also, you will also be able to download your files from your seedbox to your home computer with the maximum speed of your local connection. Since the torrent sites demand a certain ratio to download their torrents, seeding will be done by the VPS on your behalf 24/7 so that you don’t have to keep your computer on for long hours.
With the use of a seedbox, you can be assured of high-end security and safety as you are not torrenting using your own computer instead you are using a remote server to do that for you. Also, most of the seedboxes have integrated VPN (Open VPN) which masks your IP address with the IP address of your seedbox.
Also, you can create your own media server as most of the seedboxes listed here come with Kodi and Plex as pre-installed or one-click install features. You can download your streaming content (TV series, Movies, Music ) on the seedbox and these apps will organize your content. You can also use apps like Jellyfin, sonar, Medusa, radarr to automatically fetch torrent files of episodes of your favorite TV series and add them to your torrent client automatically you don’t have to track torrent sites for finding torrent files of the latest content. Now you can directly stream your content in your web browser or through the Plex app on the smartphone or smart TV.
