Last update : 26 February 2018. Finding a free Seedbox is currently quite a difficult mission. In fact, even though there is a large choice of providers, only a few offer this solution. Yet, most of the time, you’ll find some alternatives such as « money back guarantee » which will enable you to use a Seedbox for free during 3 or 14 days. This is not exactly as having a free seedbox, but it is not too far from it. Unfortunately, this will only be for a limited amount of time. Despite their rarity, we managed to find some free Seedboxes which are really worthy of interest.
Why should you start with a free Seedbox ?
We can only be pleased by providers that provide free Seedboxes or a long trial period. Why ? Well, it’s pretty simple. In fact, this will enable you to discover and get used to the interface. Even though, in general, you’ll find some things very close from one provider to an other, you’ll definitely have one you like best. Therefore, with a free Seedbox or a long trial period (money back guarantee), you’ll manage to discover by yourself and make your own opinion. Then, you can order a real hosting or leave it and discover a new provider.
Even though trial periods are not really free Seedboxes, they still offer the same result in the end. Very often, you can find a very cheap Seedbox which does not have any trial period because its « basic solution » is very cheap already… Anyway, if you’re not happy with your provider when you’re using a trial period, you just have to ask for your payback and the job is done. Generally, clients don’t end their subscription at the end of the trial period because they are very satisfied with what they get.
Yet, if you just want to take advantages of the 14 days money back guarantee, you’ll still have to pay first and then ask for your payback. Then, your subscription will be cancelled and you’ll get your money back. Just don’t forget to ask for it within the first 14 days. Without wasting any more time, discover the different providers that offer free Seedboxes or trial periods.
THE best : Seedbox.fr and its 14 days FREE Seedbox

As a matter of fact, the latter is 14 days long and will enable you to store 50Go of files and take advantage of the excellent 10Gb/s bandwidth. In the very beginning, we started using Seedboxes with this provider and its free Seedbox. Since, it really convinced us and we’ve tried some way bigger solutions with the one offering 3To of disk space. As you’ll see during this article, the main problem with free Seedboxes is that their disk space is really limited. Therefore, you’ll have to pay if you really want something serious.
Nowadays, we hardly manage to imagine a VPS under 200Go of disk space. Of course, everything will depend on your use. In the end, Seedbox.fr really offers the best solution as far as this is concerned and we can strongly recommend you to try the 14 days free Seedbox with this provider.

Yet, keep in mind that the connection speed you’ll have on the free Seedboxes is nothing compared to what you would get with the charged Seedboxes. Even though having a free Seedbox is very interesting, 15Go is still too limited according to us. Download 2 movies in UHD and your VPS will be full… We really think that the compromise that Seedbox.fr offers is way more interesting. Yet, here, the advantage is that you’ll be able to keep it for as long as you want. If you only want to download a few TV series that are only 300Mo big, this can easily do the job.
