Should i buy this server?
I am thinking of getting this server:
Intel Celeron D
- Intel Celeron D 2.66 Ghz
- 512 MB DDR2 Ram
- 120GB SATA II HD
- 2 IP Addresses
Set-up Fee: $0
Monthly Fee: From $44.95
With CPANEL/WHM, so its about $70-80 a month.
They are offering me 100mbit with 3000gb transfer.
I am thinking of starting a Filehosting site with a couple of others sites. Do you think this server is good for a start? OR is the bandwidth too low?
Also how is this company?
If your just doing file hosting and not a lot of dynamic stuff, that server should be fine.
100mbit port? I thought volumedrive was 10Mbit unmetered?
That server should be fine if its a brand new file hosting site, as your traffic would be low at first, you could expand as you grow.
This is what they told me in EMAIL:
We have two options in regards to bandwidth. Either 10 Mbps unmetered
which would reach 3200 GB of transfer per/mo, or you can choose a 100
Mbps shared link with 3000 GB per/mo of total transfer.
I'd go with the 100Mbit option..would allow you to burst if needed, as you have already picked out.
other than that, as I said before, as long as you aren't doing any Dynamic / Database sites you should be fine.
what OS are you planning to use?
Cent OS 4...
Which is the most common one used by many?
Different people prefer different distros.
Cent OS 4/5 is pretty popular...any OS will do what you need it to do though.
Thats not to bad for a start, I would get more hard disk space and at least 1gb RAM if you can afford it. Volumedrive is a good company too.
Not bad to start a forum with 8.000 users... btw ask to this company if is possible and how much do upgrades ehehe! the most important thing to do when u start your business...
