-Simply put, web-seeding is a technology which allows a BitTorrent swarm to use a web server as a peer of the swarm. In other words if you have content you want to distribute through a web server, you can use web-seeding to create a BitTorrent swarm around that content and offload the burden from the web-server, as it would act a simple seed in that swarm maintaining it alive for as long as you share that content, but as soon as there are more than one downloaders,​ they will actually be peers in the swarm and download all from each other (thus sharing the load) not all of them from the server ​at the same time.+Simply put, web-seeding is a technology which allows a BitTorrent swarm to use a web server as a peer of the swarm.

 +==== What is Anonymous Download? ====
 +
 +Anonymous Download service is basically a private connection to a high-speed seedbox, downloading all torrents anonymously. Instead of only accelerating regular BitTorrent transfers through Bitcomet’s servers, the “anonymous” downloads will be handled by BitComet’s VIP servers exclusively,​ hiding the IP-address of the user.
 +
 +If VIP members enable anonymous downloads the remote servers will initiate all peer and tracker communications and download the data on behalf of the VIP member, so the member’s actual IP address isn’t shared with any of the peers or trackers. Members who enable Anonymous Download will only get data tranfered from VIP server and LT-Seed(if enabled).
