Some say VPN has a large number of benefits while some deny this by explaining the former is more preferable than the latter.
Which one do you prefer?
Hold on! Don’t get confused. We are here to help you out with your decision. Understanding the pros and cons of both networks will help you to make the right decision.
Benefits of Seedbox
- Due to the use of BitTorrent Protocol, it offers faster uploading and downloading speed. With a high-scale bandwidth range of 100MBits/s to 1GBits/s, the remote server works amazingly on the torrent platform. Any large media files can be easily downloaded or uploaded in a blink of an eye.
- The server offers a safe and secure network to the users. Anyone who is intentionally trying to hack your IP address won’t be able to accomplish the task. As he will witness the IP address of the remote server, not the actual one. This provides an extra layer of security to the user.
- With the configuration of the Plex media server, you may convert your server to a media center. This allows you to stream the media files directly from the server.
Drawbacks of Seedbox
- In order to download any file to your device, you need to download twice. First to the remote server followed by to your device. Even if downloading won’t take enough time, doing the same thing twice is inconvenient.
- The server is specially designed for torrenting. It won’t give its best on any other platform.
Benefits of VPN
- The best thing about VPN service is it allows encryption of the entire traffic, making the network completely secure. It adds extra security to both private and public networks. For example, WiFi hotspots.
- Like seedbox, VPN networks even excel in hiding the IP address, thus preventing the data from the attackers.
- VPNs allow users to bypass geo-restrictions residing on both websites and content. For example, Netflix. You must have heard of that. It is one of the prominent platforms where users prefer to use VPN service.
Drawbacks of VPN
- With VPN, speed issues are quite common. It has been found, services that are not using VPN are having more uploading and downloading speed than the services with the VPN network. This is because VPNs are used for data encryption which usually takes more time and resources, cutting down the speed to a great extent.
- VPNs are more complicated than the above-mentioned remote server. To offer better network service, large complicated network protocols and hardware devices are used.
- VPN offers secure connections – yes, it’s true. But this is limited to some extent. Since VPNs add security to both private and public networks, it becomes difficult to ensure sufficient secured connection.
Although, in most of the cases, it is the VPN service that attains the high vote. The amazing benefits offered by seedbox leave no stone unturned to drive the attention of a large number of users.
Now, the decision is yours. Choose the best one smartly and improve your torrenting.
