    Right at this moment they aren't, I put up the poll to see if there would be any general interest...If more than 20 people want the plan then I will make them available to WHT members only when we launch on monday (11/18/20)...If you check back and you see that this poll has reached over 15 answers "Yes" for the plan you want...pm me...There will but limited quantities...

    This should be in the Advertising Forums. Especially since you are soliciting data with the intent to sell to members.

    how do you define "semi-dedicated"? And 200GB transfer for a semi-dedicated plan may be way too much overselling!

    I'm not overselling at all, I'm anticipating full usage of the 200GB & 600GB packages... The prices will probably be $75 & $95, for the promo...

    My definition of Semi-Dedicated would be a reseller account with a lot of resources...

    I'm only going to offer this to the first 10 people if there is general interest...and that would be only for people of WHT.

    nope, semi-dedicated suck, not to mention that a dedicated server is not much more than your prices.

    Just how many users are you planning to put on these servers? From experience of our own semi-dedicated plans, your servers would be extremely overloaded offering that much bandwidth at such a ridiculously low price.

    What spec machines are you intending using?

    Number of user in a server does not mean anything! I had a client (now my colo client) who is basically using my whole server all by himself. The server itself is quite powerful, a P3/850Mhz with 2GB memory. But yet, I could not add any client on it because the server is maxed out already. Well, with 25 million hits and a really busy forum (sometimes 900 simultaneous users online), the server had its reason to be maxed out.

    My point is ... Without a resource allocation guarantee, it does not matter whether you put 5 clients on the server, 10 clients, or even 100 clients, it's still a shared account; each account has a capability to bring down the whole server by consuming all the server resources at the expense of other clients.

    And 200-600GB per account? That could be too much for the server to handle. My server above (which is basically a dedicated, not semi-dedicated, for my client) was only pushing around 100-150GB/month (uncompressed, or about 50-60GB with mod_gzip) traffic. No matter how strong your server, if you are hosting dynamic pages and, furthermore, without allocation guarantee/protection don't expect you will be able to allocate 200-600 GB of transfer per account (for static pages, it might be OK, but for that reasn, small dedicated server or even a VPS might be preferable).

    Just my two cents

    RedHat Linux 8.0
    Intel Pentium IV 2.0GHz w/512K Cache.
    1GB ECC DDRAM.

    Ok, Not calling them semi-dedi plans. I'll just call them reseller plans. What do you think of these?

    Disk Space-----Bandwidth-----Promo Price
    1.5 GB----------15 GB------------$14.99
    2 GB-------------20 GB-----------$19.99
    2.5 GB----------25 GB------------$24.99
    3 GB------------30 GB------------$29.99
    5 GB------------50 GB------------$49.99
    10 GB----------100 GB-----------$99.99
    20 GB----------200 GB-----------$199.99

    Yes, I know people can go to RS or someother place and get a good dedicated server for $99, but they will not get CPanel/WHM and they will have to manage the servers themself. I am however, grateful for all feedback.

    For the 200GB reseller account only 4 people per server.
    For the 100GB reseller account only 8 people per server.

    Of your original plans, I'd be very interested in the second one.
