    how can u afford this? sounds a little bit suspecious.
    i live in australia and ISP Prices for a 45Mbs (DS3) is around $50k/month. (or $3k for 3Mb/s connection),
    so how can u offer a 100Mb/s connection?

    bargain!

    ryza,

    what do you mean how can he afford to do it? It only includes 500mbytes in and additional transfer is 9.5cents thereafter - which is $97 per gig, or $972 per 10 gigabytes - which isn't that great

    Hey Ryza,

    You're talking about flat-rate bandwidth, even though your figures are pretty off. What I've posted is for usage-based bandwidth, which does not include per megabit pricing for the actual link (if you can drive a bargain), only a tariff for the data flowing across the link.

    Our website will be online hopefully within the week at http://www.hostcentral.net.au

    Hi Hosticle,

    Correct. We figured that it would be best off to include a modest amount of inbound traffic in the monthly fee in order to reduce costs for those customers (and yes, we actually have some of these customers) that don't use large amounts of inbound traffic.

    Whilst 9.4c/MB is very expensive in comparison to US based hosting operations, we do (and hence you do) only have to pay for inbound traffic. Outbound traffic is free and unmetered.

    I think you'll also find that 9.4c/MB with no commitment on data inbound is also quite competitive.

    Regards,

    David Hill

    Good for you that you pay 2c/MB for Australian bandwidth. You can get it for even cheaper than that if you're prepared to pay for it. I can get data for $1200/mbit/month, but it's something I'm not interested in at this stage.

    My discussions with a range of carriers hasn't yielded something that good, simply due to the fact that I'm not prepared to sell my soul, but then again, perhaps we're talking a totally different QoS.

    They've been good for me for the interim period that I've been using them.

    I'm switching to over to a feed from Request (they have 355MBit/s worth of connectivity in the building) hopefully by the end of the month.

    Just for your information, the figure I've quoted above for excess inbound charges is for no commitment, so, as you can imagine, if you're prepared to commit to certain levels of inbound traffic, deals can be made.

    One of your servers includes 'software-raid', and 'software updates' but you've made no indication of what OS you provide.

    Where will the servers be located? (City and datacenter location please)

    Who is the bandwidth provided by?

    Please provide an estimate of how much inbound traffic would be generated by a normal webserver doing say 100Gb outbound traffic each month.

    Hey Wolfy,

    I apologise for not making everything 100% clear:

    - Operating System is either Red Hat 7.3 or 8.0
    - The datacentre is in Melbourne in the ASX at 530 Collins Street.
    - The bandwidth is provided by Request.
    - An estimate is hard to calculate, so far, our own shared hosting servers are working basically a 1:5 ratio.
