    Hey,

    I am going to need to move scrapebox to a server soon (so it can run smoothly and quicker) and was wondering what you all used?

    Thanks

    Is this a Windows server or are you using something like VMWare?

    Thats a nice discussion. Today i had the first complaints from my isp due to bandwidth abuse. I "forgot" a list of 100k wp blogs on fast commenter... Their limits are really low and i will have change isp in any case.

    Scrapebox deserves a dedicated server imo:)

    They don't have windows servers listed on their site, but if you contact them directly requesting it, they can set one up for you on the cheap.

    It's very possible that it is, haha. I didn't really "shop around" really. I just went with the first company that told me using SB wasn't an issue (I asked first for each site I visited).

    They said yes first, so I used 'em.

    I'll definitely be investing in one of these now that I have scrapebox. What a sweet program!

    I'm just telling you what they told me. Go ahead and visit their site & use their live chat feature and ask customer service. The guy visited SB's site right during the live chat I had with him and checked it out and told me it'd be fine.

    And no problem with the bandwidth limit as i know you do some massive scraping and posting so if 3000GB is enough for you then it will surely be enough for me too :p

    Just not really too sure how much SB uses on average.

    I haven't had a problem with bandwidth usage, no. I came close once if you can believe that, but as you said, I am doing ridiculous stuff with it.

    The majority of the bandwidth usage I use comes from scraping. I'm scraping at around 500 to 1000 urls per second on three search engines (you need A LOT of private proxies to do that) and I'll let it run all night long, haha.

    As for it's average...it's tough to say really. I'll take some sreenshots the next time I'm scraping (I'm posting right now, not scraping) and I'll send 'em over to you.

    You should be fine though if you're not looking to scrape 100 million URLs or something.

    maybe this is a n00b question but what is the difference between SB running on a server and SB running on your other PC in your room?

    With dedicated you have better speed, low respond time, trouble free with your home isp. That's what I can think of. Planning to get one soon.
