    how many sites can i host

    hi there,

    i have a server with a 80GB harddisk. I want to start calculating how much space i can offer each user. I was thinking of hosting around 400-500 websites on that server, would this be possible and how much webspace do each domain get, also keeping in mind of mailbox sizes etc.

    any advice would be appreciated.

    Processor speed, ram, internet connection speed come into play here.

    Sounds like you will definitely be overselling if you are going to try to get 400-500 sites on 80 GB.

    Why not decide on your offer(s), sell what you can comfortably fit on this server (allowing a bit of free space for customer to extend their current packages).

    Watch how your customers use their space (if they all use only a small proportion, then perhaps consider overselling) then purchase additional hardware once you reach capacity :-)

    I would say you should give 100MB per account, you can fit a MAX of 200MB per domain (minus the system files).
