    How many websites can stand on VPS ?

    Hello,
    I have a question, but it may be stupid.
    Questions is how many websites can stand on VPS with following configurations ?
    I'm asking this because Can I install whm reselling script like whmphp ? or WHM Reseller creator ?
    It enables to create master reseller and whm reseller respectively. So there will be huge number of websites, databases, emails hosted on VPS
    So which one to choose ?

    1.
    Disk space - 10 GB
    Bandwidth - 200 GB
    Burst. RAM - 256 MB
    Gurnt. RAM - 128 MB
    Max CPU Usage (per CPU) - 80 %
    OS - CentOS 5.3

    2.
    Disk space - 20 GB
    Bandwidth - 400 GB
    Burst. RAM - 512 MB
    Gurnt. RAM - 256 MB
    Max CPU Usage (per CPU) -
    OS - CentOS 5.3

    Are the max CPU figures the same for the second and third configuration?

    Sorry I wouldn't have a straight answer for you, but it would help to know how the VPS node is configured. What type of RAID is setup is very important as RAM does play as a factor but disk I/O is more important and is usually what limits the performance of a VPS.

    There isn't an answer. It may not run a single site or it may run 10K sites. It all depends on resource requirements of each individual website

    AS tcstatic said it really depends on what you are running and how resource intensive they are. You can load 100+ websites and barely notice any hit performance wise or 1 website can bring you down.

    You need to get a better idea as to how much resources your sites will use and then take it from there.

    One major factor would be how high the traffic will be on these websites, any idea?

    Or are you just planning to resell and see how it goes?

    Well, the packages you mention are based on cPanel, so unless you're willing to do some radical reconfiguration then we can make some comments just based on the guaranteed memory:
    1. 128MB is totally unsuitable.
    2. 256MB is just barely enough to run cPanel in default config with a few very low-traffic sites.
    3. 512MB is the only one I'd consider, and even on that you'll probably find the 1GB burst severely limiting.

    But based on a "huge number of websites, databases, emails hosted on VPS" I'd suggest starting with at least 512MB SLM (or a Xen VPS with 512MB plus swap) and see how you go. Either of those would be far more capable than number 3 above. Once you start reselling (and particularly if you choose to offer master reseller accounts) you'll probably need to upgrade to a dedicated server soon anyway.

    The key point is this: When calculating your budget, don't imagine you'll be able to use a cheap VPS to sell hosting, let alone reseller or master resellers.

    Also, have you thought about a fully-managed VPS? If you don't have experience managing a server yourself then it's really a requirement.

    In my opinion, first, you would have to figure out the requirements of each individual website. Then, you would need to figure out the requirements of the Cpanel, WHMphp, etc. From there, you can roughly figure out what are the requirements required from a VPS

    Without the initial information gathering, it would be difficult to decide which VPS packages/specifications would be suitable for your needs

    You could probably run hundreds of purely-static sites on the configurations you list. However, if the sites will be mostly dynamic content (for example, based on PHP and lots of MySQL queries), you could run a single site or a few very small sites that don't require a lot of memory. You should also take into account the fact that the control panel you run on the VPS will take up quite a bit of memory as well.

    Ignore the burst RAM - you need to worry about the guaranteed RAM. When that node gets busy, you'll be throttled to that level and your sites could choke.

    If you're running cPanel I wouldn't do it on anything less than 512MB guaranteed if you want to run a stable service. cPanel's absolute minimum id 256MB but even with that it doesn't run well, and you generally need to disable services to compile.

    There's no hard and fast rule to how many plans you could fit on there - but with just 512MB guaranteed RAM, it's not going to be a huge number.

    agreed.

    If they are all html websites even with moderate traffic you can run lots of them. But when you get php forums sites that become moderate traffic it is going to take up resources.

    I see these threads way too often. You guys need to start doing searches before asking questions. I'd bet there have been at least 50-100 threads that are identical to this one within the past 2/3 months.

    I know there are tons of threads like this 1 on here. But google it and you'll find millions. =)

    512MB with cPanel It will run but it will not function well if you have PHP/MySQL sites that uses too much resources.

    Well if you want a straight answer if they are small sites you won't need to worry about that for a while if your just starting out.

    Agree 10000% with this post. I've learned more about how much disk sucks by working with VPS (Kernel Virtual Machine).
    Plan to invest a decent amount into storage infrastructure to be competitive in this area.
    With a simple raid10 setup, you can probably run 4 VMs, but will likely run into disk IO issues (high load, high wa%, weird kernel error messages that shouldn't exist (CPU Stuck for XX seconds)).

    If you're tinkering you're probably in good shape with what you have on hand

    There is no answer for your question. It depends on the traffic of your website.
