I looking for a dedicated server that would meet my needs
i have a adult site with 100+ members and planning on having that grow to over 5000 members this yr. The site contains about 20000 picture and 200 videos, and i also live cam 2 times a week for about 1/2hr... I would like the ability to add on a few domains, and I had a few hosting campanys tell me i should have more tha one IP. Can you tell me how the extra ip's will help, and a Good direction on what i need...... my daliy hits are about 1000 to 2500 per day Now
I would suggest going with someone who is able to provide fully managed servers. It is obvious you use alot of disk space but do you really push that much data per month? Any idea what your average transfer usage is?
Also I can't PM you since you are so new but check out the dedicated / colo offers forum there are alot of deals there on both manage and unmanaged servers. You might even be better off purchasing an umanaged server then hire'n a managment co to do that for you
How much bandwidth do you use now and how much in the future.
That's going to be a BIG consideration with all the pics and videos you have on your site.
There are some hosts out there that have unlimited bandwidth for dedicated servers and some with caps..
I agree with Xenos, if you don't know a lot about it you may want to consider hiring someone or doing a LOT of research before you get anything.. otherwise it my not meet your needs in the future.
