They're called Seedboxes.

I haven't found "specific boxes" but I brought it up yesterday as an
avenue we can take to help seed our torrents, especially since our
internal IPs are blocked on some sites like piratebay and demonoid. I
heard about them a while back.

It's basically a dedicated server that has high bandwidth capacity,
which we can use to seed. It's not CPU/IP/RAM intensive. It's like using
your own computer to seed using utorrent, but instead you would use a
dedicated server that stays on all the time, is based in EU (so less
legal issues), and has much higher bandwidth capacity than most home

And instead of utorrent, we could use the program I mentioned yesterday,
torrentflux, which allows users to FTP/SSH into a linux server and seed
using config files and commands. No Windows needed.

We could probably get 1 dedicated server w/ 8 IPs, and have all our
torrents start with at least 8 seeds or more.

Here's some threads about them:

Pedro or Herden,

What are the specs/requirements for these EU seeder boxes?

Cpu intense? IP intense? Ram intense? Bandwidth intense?
