    What kind of server should I get for ad serving?

    Hello,

    I am looking for server to serve banner ads. I am going to use phpadnews to rotate ads.

    Right now daily average imp is like 180000(daily) and popup/under is like 40000 (daily) and I am not sure what kind of specs I need in server...Also traffic is still growing...

    I was thinking P4 2.8Ghz with 1GB server... is this enough or I need more powerful server?

    Could anyone help on this issue?

    Thanks

    P4 2.8Ghz should be fine... if you think to host only this and a couple of other small sites....

    You offered stats, I assumed you already have your advertising system in production.

    If it is live, how are you hosting it now? VPS? Dedicated?

    I recommend that you get a really low-end server without RAM for serving popups

    I would recommend getting a server that's utilizing tier-1 bandwidth and has a strong uptime/SLA. That's the most important thing you should consider when shopping, as downtime will most definately be a vital concern to you.
