yes,seedboxes are webseeds from people that have their own servers and rent out to uploaders,they are very good because if you use them downloaders will get better speeds,your torrents will rarely be dead,there will be less chance of infringment notices as they can`t be traced back to you,also if you want downloaders to get great speeds from the moment you upload you can use a FTP client to transfer data to your seedbox before you create the torrent and upload it to a torrent site

What are web seeds?

What seeds give the torrent client the ability to download torrent pieces/data from an http source in addition to the swarm. So if you have a file somewhere on the internet, you can simply add its link to your torrent. Now if the swarm is weak, the torrent client will fetch data from the http source. The advantage, of course, is that a publisher can create a torrent of a file which is already hosted on his server and not worry about seeding it full time, while the user can obtain the data directly from the http source or through the torrent. Either way, the user will get the data from the http source. However, if the torrent becomes popular and self-sustainable, the torrent client will fetch data from the swarm and only use the http seed for pieces which are not available or are deficient in the swarm.

This is a very good approach towards file distribution which can be used by artists, producers who distribute their content online. Using web seeds, they can keep their torrents alive for as long as their servers are up. A perfect balance between load-balancing and content availability.

Nope. You need a direct download link for the file, and most of the file hosting sites dont provide that i guess.

But you can use Dropbox and similar services
