    Need advice

    I M new to this site.

    I m planing to buy a vps to start reseller hosting.

    they are new and for a month they are going to provide me with following

    512mb Ram
    1 Core
    20GB Space
    1000 GB / 1 TB bandwidth
    ubuntu os prefreably


    my question is how many user can it host realistically to be very true or is it even possible to host anything on it or should i give up the idea and use it to host game server but that would b next option under consideration.

    Hello,

    It all depends on if the websites you are going to host have high traffic, aswell as what control panel you will have installed on it to even host the websites. i think WHM/cPanel alone uses about 256MB of memory, not 100% sure but if thats the control panel your going to use then you may get a few websites on the VPS. But like i say depends on how many visitors each visit the websites that are hosted on the VPS.

    You could have 1 website use up all the resources or be able to fit a few hundred. There is no formula to determine how many accounts can be put on that server. You'd need to monitor activity as time goes on and make adjustments as necessary until you have a general idea of the type of customers that are signing up along with how they use their services.

    do you already have accounts to put on this server? Or are you just starting?

    For that your not really going to find an answer or even an ideal answer. I recommend as you keep adding them just keep an eye on it and that will be I think the best way to see how much more or less you can add or have to remove.

    so should i update ram to 1gb that would help out ... its actually just for starters as few of you guys suggested would upgrade according to requirements
    i was just going to keep shared hosting on it.
    something like
    1gb space 10gb bw for 1$ or less.
    and no RapidLeech & Memory Consuming Scripts

    Hello,

    Like mike mentioned, keep an eye on everything like memory and CPU and just make sure there are now resource hoggers and everything should run fine. But 1GB would be better than 512MB.

    Regards,
    Adam

    Not sure if cPanel & WHM can be installed on Ubuntu server. If I was you I would take out a reseller plan.

    cPanel can not be installed on Ubuntu

    If your provider has an upgrade path just get the 512 and keep an eye on it.
    Back in the early days before VPS a 512 RAM dedicated server was common. a big server had 2G of ram WOW. I cant images trying to host sites on one of those old machines now

    It is simply the lowest end VPS.

    Dont expect great performance.

    Best to only setup LAMP without control panel.

    With control panel, you are nearly exhausted.
