i am not here to look for prospective host.. rather i just want to know what would it cost me to have one so atleast i can plan for future (i wish to change host soon)...
i run 4 forums with a total of 500-550 users online at peak time and an average of 400 users at any given time.
In addition i also run an imagehosting site with 'more than just decent' traffic... 400,000 raw hits a day..
I can guess that the above should be memory and CPU intensive but i am not sure exactly what fits the bill.
> What hardware specs would yu people recommend to me considering i want to run it all from one single dedicated server?
> What is the LEAST that i would have to spend?
> Since i need a FULLY MANAGED server(where i just login to CPanel/WebMin/Plesk and worry about nothing else), would it be better to go for an unmanaged dedicated server and use managing services of a 3rd party like platinumservermanagement.com, acunett etc?
Thanks for reading
