I need your advice concerning a server with the following specs:
Dual Core Pentium D 950
2 Total 3.4 GHz Cores
800 MHz Front Side Bus (FSB)
4 MB (2 MB Per Core) L2 Cache
2 GB 533 MHz DDR2 RAM
2x250 GB SATA HD
Fully managed service with 24/7 support by phone and email
1600 GB Monthly Transfer
100 Mbps Uplink Port
4 IP Addresses
I'm wondering if the server is suitable for a just starting web hosting comapny? How much 'normal' customer I can expect hosting on it?
Although it is a nice server, don’t you think it’s a bit big? You might want to get something a little smaller, and then work your way up once you get more customers.
Then again, it’s up to you – good luck!
The setup fee is a bit high but you can have about 300 clients on it.
where do you come up with the 300 client number? That can vary so widely based upon a number of factors. It's like saying how much water can you fit in a pool without knowing anything about the size or depth
That system is definately a good start, the pentium D's run good and overall it will be a very healthy system
