Cheap Dedicated Server for just "Parking Plan" clients?
I'm new in here and this is my first post ... so please forget both: my ignorance and my awful english!
I have a Dedicated Server at Rackspace with Plesk in it (I really need some Control Pannel Admin System 'cause I'm not a Linux guru but just a webdesigner).
I can only host up to 100 domains in it and I'm reaching that amount.
Among those I have like 40 domains that are just in what I've named "Parking Plan Hosting".
To these clients I just give them 5 email accounts (of only 5 Mb each) and a "Under Construction" page or either a redirection to another webpage.
I would like to move those clients to a cheaper dedicated server so I can use their place in my server for better and bigger clients that pay higher monthly fees.
All I need in this new dedicated server is the following:
- Linux OS (Red Hat 9 if possible)
- Webadmin System (Plesk 7 if possible or CPannel or Ensim)
- Good connectivity and stability guaranteed
That server will not host much data as I've explained, but
if you have really tough budget and able to face downtime, then manager.com is your best choice; otherwise, pay little more setup fee to get server from servermatrix.com. They have nice support there. At least I called three times, and someone will talk to me on phone.
As others have pointed out, I think it makes sense to go with a VPS. You should be able to host hundreds of 'Parking' type accounts without problem. And if you choose a decent VPS provider, you get benefits of more redundant hardware for a lower price.
