Speed

10 Gbps connection for downloading, 505 Mbps for uploading. The download speed is phenomenal, when there are plenty of seeds, the connection easily exceeds 100 MB/s and there are no complaints on this side. The upload speed is less impressive, but I’m not sure wether that’s because of the trackers being saturated with seeders or the connection. However, there is no problem with the upload because the seedbox is always on, files can just be left seeding.

Customer Service

I’ve had to deal with the support team on a few occasions. Once was when my old seedbox plan was being upgraded to a newer plan which faster speed and more space. The support were very friendly and as I say, they were giving me extra space and speed for the same price! The site also features a load of documents about setting up software on your server and other torrent related things which is really helpful.



Software

The software choices for seedboxes are Deluge, rTorrent / ruTorrent, rTorrent / wTorrent or Transmission. I went for ruTorrent which I’m more than happy with. This is probably the best time to report about Ferals awesome customer back-end. It is a fully custom back-end that lets you install torrent clients, a VPN or MySQL on your box. I’ve never seen a better service from a seedbox host!

  • Not really the experience i got from them, perhaps its a good thing that nothing went wrong and the only “problem” was buying more from them, i prepaid a slot something that dident work out the way it was promised, crapy upload speeds and the worse support ever. Whats the use of trial 7 days when the “support” doesent answer or help in days.

    Are u willing to pay for old stuff that doesent work as promised ?

    I dont

    I can add to this, recently they keep promising to upgrade to newer servers/plans, but have not been doing so for the past 3 months, while all the time their main page declares that they have 100+ free slots of different plans

    very bad support, the only response you can get from them is : pay us more money

    I’ll be looking for a different company, this will be the last renewal with them, money-hungry bastards

  • Well I wish I had received good service.

    I accidentally put in a slightly incorrect email address (faulty keyboard). When I got locked out and couldn’t retrieve the account I emailed them to no avail.

    I can appreciate that they may have thought I was someone else but I could tell them everything, password, username, ssh pass, transmission pass, what bitcoin account credit was sent from and too and I could have even sent a list of every torrent running (I had set up a remote before locking myself out).
    They couldn’t have helped any less, it was just lucky that I still had access to the remote and sftp.

    Totally disappointed.

    I found feral hosting mostly good. Generally speaking I would say I got more than advertised with feral hosting. Unfortunately there was one big problem and their support department came off to be a little bit sarcastic and less flexible than I hoped; I could not be moved onto another server when I was unsatisfied due to present server being blacklisted. :/
