We've been told by Alabanza that they do not recommend trying to use all 1,000 CPs, that around 700 or so is best for optimal performance. If this is your only concern it is probably better to by two servers (Standard Pack) than overload one Raid 5.

Cool

Luke,

I agree with Stephanie that it all depends upon what kind of performance is good enough for you and your clients. But, I recently got an email from Ron at Alabanza. In one part of it, it states that the RAID 5 package includes "Up to 1000 Control Panels (recommended limit)"

Just so you know, the Standard Pack comes with 500 Control Panels, but more are available.

Hope this helps!

Mark

Are these additional Control Panels available FREE of cost on demand?

I believe there is a charge per CP.

Learner,

Extra control panels cost $1.00 each for those over 500.

Sorry, I thought I had put that in...

The charge is monthly.

Extra Control Panels for the Standard Plan are $1.00 per CP, per month. This is for those after the included 500.

Sorry about that!!!

I strongly disagree here. They claim you can put 1000 site to a box, ya right. With maybe 4gig of ram, and quad processors. If you put even 500 on one box you WILL have problems. It ones takes one site running all by its lonesome to crash a machine sometimes with server loads. So when you have 500 to watch for, and you will be watching hard with that many, then you will never get away from troubles. With that many sites you will also have an enourmous amount of users (pop & ftp) and thats just more load on the machine still. Now lets say that somehow you were able to keep the machine up, how much traffic do you think 500 sites will pull. Im betting on about 10 times at least of the allotted 50gig a month by Alabanza. All this together with Alabanzas high bandwidth fees just equals failure. When your 500 clients crammed on a machine for 1000 (ya right) see the ungodly sluggishness of their sites they will be unhappy.
Bottom line is Alabanza may be generous in offering that many CP's with a machine but in no way can it SAFELY handle it. Just my two cents

Well by that same token, a server with two sites on it could be in trouble. Yep, all it takes is one site to do the damage. I don't think an extra 100 has any effect other than slightly increase the odds of getting "that one site"

Well not only do you increase your chances to get that one bad site but running 500 sites on one server and let them have only 1 gig( which is the worst traffic allotment and you probably couldnt get anyone to buy off on that) but let say you did and you had 500 sites using 1 gig each thats 500gig mo. Now take out the 50 your allowed and multiply 450 x $8/gig . Ouch to say the least. You loose big becuase you cant be chargging a user much for a measly 1 gig of transfers. At least allow 4 or 5 gig and now do the math. I dont even want to think about it, and for the sake of all the clients out there I hope no host thinks of cramming 500 sites to a machine either.

That assumes that every account will reach the absolute max on traffic allowed - the odds say it just won't happen. 500 is not some magical number - it's just a baseline of sorts. Anyone who takes it as a hard and fast rule, without bothering to check resource usage, is simply asking for trouble.

I agree that the odds are that all sites don't use their full allotment but if enough do, those 50gigs go fast! It really only takes a few sites.
