I know this may be a broad question, but how many sites can you put on a server and still get good performance? I realize that there are different hardware, software, and connection configurations, but most people here probably use a datacenter that gives some sort of standard configuration for everyone. So, about how many sites can you get on there before it's time to buy a new one?
yeah, you added something I didn't think of, web space. I'm just trying to get an idea of how many sites could be on the same server that I'm on. Nothing specific, just a round number. Maybe size of hard drive divided by the particular plan you think most use?
There is no set number. It all depends on the host/servers/sites. Some sites are big, some are small. Some servers have huge capacity and some have small. Some host's like to keep a lowest amount of site on the server to provide maximum performance for their clients, and some like to oversell.
I couldn't have explained it better then HP-David.
