    Unhappy question for share hosting.

    Hello,

    we are just thinking opening share hosting. we have do some research also.

    we have just used few share hosting ( for testing ).

    we can see that some share hosting provider run it on xen ( not the one on the dedicated server )

    do you guy recommend running share hosting under xen instead on dedicated server ?

    Im having a little difficult understanding your post, but if I understand you correctly you are looking to start offering a web hosting service and you want to know if it would be better to start off with a VPS or a dedicated server? Personally, I think you would be better off first starting out with a reseller, then once you get the hang of things you can either upgrade to a VPS or lease a dedicated box. In this industry its always best if you crawl before you walk

    You'd get more resources if you use a dedicated server, as it's dedicated to you rather than anyone else.

    However, starting off with a VPS isn't a bad idea at all. But you can run into some problems if you start hosting some bigger websites.

    My recommendation: if you're serious about web hosting, out of the two options (Xen and a dedicated server) get a dedicated server if your budget allows it. If not, then a VPS will be fine. If you actively monitor it you will know when the time is to upgrade to a dedicated.

    Why don't you start off on a reseller plan? It is the easiest and most cost-effective way to get started in the business

    With Xen or for that matter any Virtual environment, it would be good if you host mostly static websites and not dynamic websites. For Dynamic websites, a dedicated server will be the best way to start. We don't know what budget do you have for the investment and hence cannot really advice you the best way. Reseller plan may be a good option to start with, but you will not enjoy the privileges of setting your own policies as you will have to follow the policies set by the hosting company.
