Estimate how many Domain/Account will run on this server at max load
Hello I am wondering if anyone who would be willing to speculate on how many domains could fit on a server with the below specs before the server would reach inoperable loads. I am a little new
to this and for some reason it is not easy to find an Average.
My data center said that on similar machines they have tested as many as 1800 full domain accounts but they are not willing to establish if they are 1800 Unlimited Resourse accounts.
I am not interested in the Disk space issue because that is resolved by adding more Drives and it is not much of an issue with my provider. However the server has no more Ram slots.
I have seen that the greatest amount of memory on a hostgator set up is something like 8GB so I imagine that with 32GB i should be ok but what abbout httpd connections?
Can apache and my processor handle requests for such a large volume of Unlimited Cpanel full domain accounts including subdomains addon, parks and all that stuff.
I was told by a few industry insiders that 600 would be more than what they consider an Oversell Server, (600 Customers with Unlimited resources on a pooled share envirmoment.)
The issue is anything less than 600 customer accounts per server gives me very little room to make any money as these servers are not cheap.
I am about to launch a hosting company, Yes before anyone asks, I have nothing to hide. A lot of you have been here before so that is why I ask.
My server specs are as follows:
Intel Xeon E3 1245v2 (4 cores / 8 Threads)
3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost)
32 GB DDR3
2 x 2TB SATA3
1GB server to end user connection
200mb internal server to data center connection
