Thanks for pointing that out. It's probably not something I would have thought to check. Also-making sure you read the "fine print" is not just good advice here. It's a good idea in any situation.

is there an option of "free but limited" seedbox on the internet?
Any free seedbox is going to have serious drawbacks. they're not likely to be secure, reliable, fast, or any other quality seedbox customers look for in a provider. many are just scams. the decent free ones don't stick around long, for obvious reasons... you cant keep give away free accounts without the service suffering. For the cost of a latté you can get yourself an introductory seedbox. I revitalised an old thread in the seedbox forums where users can compare past and present plans: Thread: What Seedbox service do you use and why? V2 . If you really can't afford anything, many users share seedbox space for free, though some users will cap the file-size, only seed to a certain ratio, or impose speed restrictions, but hey its free. Just make sure you read the rules first. I share space on my personal seedbox and our release-group box: Thread: Applied Piracy Seedbox Accepting Requests: 10 Gbit/s + Unlimited Bandwidth
also, how to save these torrents against DMCA?

Uploaders can create a "Releasers Thread" where they can post their torrents and
torrent hashes. Even if your torrents get taken down, the other users can still download by using the hashes. https://kat.cr/community/releasers/

so, if i have a torrent with low seed. does it seed it for me?
If you were to create a torrent yourself then you'd need to upload the files to the seedbox first and if downloading, then yes it would continue seeding.
seedbox have own Server space and Bandwidth for download-upload if you want to seed with seedbox 1st of all you need to have own seedbox account. simply upload your file to seedbox and find link of file after that when you creating torrent put your link in webseed field and TaDAAA Now you able to seed it from seedbox

how to save these torrents against DMCA?

I forgot to add—for those who don't know—you can find the hash of any torrent under the "Technical" tab, below the tracker info. Once a torrent is deleted, by the uploader or by DMCA, the technical tab is no longer visible unless you are KAT staff with Moderator status or higher. If one of your torrents was DMCA'd, you can ask a staff member for the hash or use Keka_Umans207.62K amazing tool to grab magnet links and torrent hashes of DMCA'd torrents!

I don't know about that. Ask in the community. Maybe something in here:

Wow! thanx for the detailed explanation.

As i said, I'm planning to upload some heavy stuff and won't be online 24x7 to seed it.

I really needed some quick links to services which i can afford.

Thanx for helping me I4AP24.91K and Anomolous31.02K for all the details. I'll read them tomorrow and start preparing for massive uploads!
wrong user linkThe most affordable, non-scam plans I could find for a 10 Gbit network with great 24/7 support is with SeedHost. They allow public trackers, don't care about piracy, and you can upgrade at anytime. I can personally vouch for them because my first seedbox was with them. They don't offer unlimited bandwidth, but I see you only have one upload so far so that won't matter for now. The cheapest plan is 5 euros (5.45$ at the current exchange rate) http://www.seedhost.eu/seedboxes.php
If you need an unlimited plan the cheapest plan is FeralHosting.com who I can also vouch for because they are who I use now—as well as most other uploaders I've spoken with.

Thanx I4AP24.91K !

I've come to know that FeralHosting.com is one of the most popular option here. I'll be sure to keep them as my option once I figure out a way to pay monthly!
Excellent reply I4AP24.91K
And great that you put it here in the comments so everyone can benefit from it.
