    reco's on a server to host lots of domains?

    cost is sort of an issue, of course.

    i want a server that i can use to host a dozen sites or so, followed by more & more until she's busting out over 100 domains.

    gotta have the basics like php, mysql etc

    suggestions?

    more info you need from me?

    oh yes, and it's gotta be reasonably fast & have wicked good uptime, as there's no point in 24/7 ecommerce if the server's taking a little nap... :p

    dual xeon with 1gb ram can handle 100+ sites easily

    unless one of those sites is something like webhostingtalk.com forum then you''re screwed lol

    I had a P4 2.66GHz with 1GB RAM and it was hosting 200+ sites at 0.5 load average

    And a dual xeon with 2GB RAM with 50 sites at 0.8 with similar tweaking.

    It really depends on the site usage. You would be able to host 543543534 sites if each of them get less than 1 hits/mo
