With all the anti piracy legislation laws in the news, it’s probably a good time to start thinking about protecting your privacy on the net a bit better. If you plan to download files from the internet, that breech copyright, you need to be smart about it.
There are a few ways to go about this, however, the method I will chat about in this post is called a Seedbox.
What is a seedbox?
A seedbox is a web server that is designed to host torrent files. It acts much the same as a desktop torrent application such as utorrent, however, it is hosted on a web server, with a really fast connection.
How does it protect you?
Well if you want to download torrent files, but you want to keep your own personal IP address private from others, a seedbox does just that. It is the seedboxes IP that will be connected to the torrent, not your own. Your seedbox will download the file at super fast speeds. When it is finished you can connect to your seedbox with free FTP software to safely, and privately download your file back to your PC.
A seedbox is not all that expensive, about the price of 2 new release DVD rentals a month. Here is a seedbox price comparsion site.
