Lately we haven't been happy with the hosting provider we used to host our website at, lots of upcoming scheduled maintenance, connectivity issues, dns issues, even downtimes, etc. so today we moved the main site application, workers, databases etc to the same data center our node servers are located in. You probably didn't notice as it took only a few minutes. The main app and queue workers sit on a really beefy server now, i7 6700 HT, 64GB RAM, SSDs in Raid 1, Gbit line, with internal connections to the billing backend and nodes. Pretty awesome setup, just sayin' and it's getting better and better really fast!
In other news, we enabled the Flood app for all plans, it's a decent rtorrent web ui that has responsive design, which means it actually works on mobile devices.
Oh yeah and there's upgrade options now for your seedboxes, starting with a 0.5 or 1TB extra space upgrade. Just scroll down to the bottom of your seedbox page and select what you need, pay the invoice a…
In case you've missed it, we've implemented a nice little custom forum for our users to hang out, share invites, read up on best torrenting practices and help each other. Feel free to share info regarding seedboxes, scene, torrenting, privacy & security, linux related or anything else related to our service.
News posts are now part of the forum too, FAQs might follow soon-ish, if you are missing any features let us know. Have fun!
We've had several requests about FUSE which stands for file system in user space, it's needed for certain rclone mounts and other applications, so we've updated all current VM templates with a fresh compiled kernel with enabled fuse kernel modules. All new Seedboxes come with it enabled, if your seedbox was created before today, you just have to reboot it and you will be able to use fuse right away!
We have big plans to make use of this module, e.g. a full blown file manager for all kinds of cloud storage systems on your seedbox dashboard, easy plex mounts, rar2fs a file system that lets you mount rars, no more unpacking needed, and more. Enjoy!
Yes we are on a roll, we've just added CoinPayments to our payment options, which means you can now order seedboxes at Seedit4Me using crypto currencies like Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and others for additional privacy! Bitcoin is a virtual currency that can provide anonymous transactions. These transactions should be untraceable to you. We won’t go into how Bitcoin works exactly, but check how Bitcoin works for further explanation. Torrent users should be savvy with their privacy online. A seedbox is a great way to add a layer of anonymity between yourself and prying eyes. Paying with bitcoins is another way to obscure your identity more.
Our process has been tested and works flawlessly, although you might have to wait 5 to 30 minutes for the system to confirm the payment on the network.
