I’ve just been advised by EasySpace that the VPS I rent from them cannot access torrents. They block all torrent traffic on their network.
I’m sorry but Easyspace do not allow connection to torrent trackers on our network. There is the potential for the service to be abused so it is forbidden entirely.
Uploading/Downloading torrents will also greatly increase the bandwidth usage of your server and potentially cause problems for other users on the network.
Outrageous. If it wasn’t that I need a UK IP I’d kill the service immediately. Outrageous.
Any recommendations on a good UK VPS host? I’m looking around £25 a month for a reasonably spec’d box (probably 512MiB RAM). I’ll be happy to switch if I can find a better alternative.
