I just bought a dedicated server which I host a few of my clients on. It's completly paid for by them but I would like to host a few other people on it to make a little bit of extra cash. (Maybe expand later with another server)
It is a 3.06 Ghz with 1 gig RAM 120 GIG HD
One of the perks is that no more than 50 people will be hosted on the server. Resource usage is extremly limited... only 20% of the RAM is ever utilized at one time and CPU usage is always minimal so its extremely fast.

Sorry to tell you.
So why post at all if you don't have anything to contribute?
Anyhow, since you're trying to make some extra money off of it, and only 50 customers, calculate the cost of Zend and apply it across the 50 customers and see if you can draw up so monthly figures. Make sure you don't make your prices too low, because that's a unique addition to a hosting package. You might also want to consider an even cost scale (i.e. $8, 10, 12, etc. or higher increments). Basically, decide how much you want to make and factor in only 50 customers and go from there. Hope this has helped in some way.
