    New Web Server Help Please

    I have had a reseller account for a few years now, But looking to do a full server now, Not sure if this is enough or to much.

    Looking at a :

    2 X AMD Athlon MP 2600 Processor
    1GB Registered PC2100 Memory
    80 GB Hard Drive
    2000 GB Bandwidth

    OS is Red Hat ES 3.0
    With Cpanel 10.0

    Is that to much server or To little or just right?

    The server will be already set up for me.

    Going to use the same type of server for my Game server for my Squad also..

    Can some one help me and give a few pointers on this?

    In my opinion, you should go for dual xeon with at least 2 GB of RAM.
    Remember to have SCSI disks

    Can be too little or too much depending of your quirements. How many customers? how much disk space are you using at the moment? How much data transfer are you using?

    I personally like Dual Xeon.

    Also if you don't have experiece managing servers i recommend you get some kind of help, check out the guys from www.fastservermanagement.com or get a server that includes management like www.liquidweb.com

    Yeah, he`s right. 80 GB I suppose it is SATA disk. Forget about it If you need sth what is really realiable use SCSI with lots of RAM and Dual Xeon.

    They do not have
    2 x Dual Xeon
    2 GB of DDRAM
    6 x 73 SCSI (RAID 5 )
    2 TB of bandwidth

    but this config with two Athlons is much better than last one. So if it is impossible to buy machine with config which I wrote you buy this

    Hello,

    If you are just now moving from a reseller web hosting plan to a dedicated server, you don't need to immediately jump into a Dual Xeon. Start off with a small server like the first you mentioned (with only 1GB of Ram). Remember, as your needs become larger, you can always upgrade your existing server with additional memory and hard drives, or simply add a second server to your network. Don't pay the money for the extra Ram up front -- you most likely won't need it immediately. At which time you do feel that you need it, go ahead and upgrade. Many web hosts find that once a server is full, one gigabyte of ram is adequately enough to suit the needs of the customers on the machine. This is something which you won't know until you have filled the machine, but some times you may just get lucky and not have to make upgrades. In the end, you'll have to make a decision based on your needs, but I personally believe from my own experience (I came off of a Reseller account nearly five years ago and jumped onto my first server), that you should start off small and work your way up as your needs progress. I hope this has been of help to you. Good Luck!
