    How many sites can i run on this VPS

    It is a 1500 mhz and 1 gb ram VPS.
    Im wondering how many sites can i run on this VPS? cPanel & WHM will be installed on this too.
    The sites will be Joomla/Forums & Static sites.

    Anyone can help me?

    There is no single answer for this question. It may not run a single site or it may run hundreds sites. It really depends on how resource intensive, and traffic each individual website gets.

    Small part of them may get approx. 1000 visits per day. Many of them will be low traffic sites. Thank you vpsville and shaki for your replies

    You need to be much more specific then you have been. Saying "a small part of them" really is meaningless, do you mean 10 sites or 1000 sites?

    On average you should be able to handle a decent number of websites that get 1K visits per day. Remember that CPanel will eat a significant amount of ram and then your other running services. But as others have said it really depends on how well optimized your VPS is and the scripts that you'll be running.

    There are things you can do to minimize your overhead (search for VPS optimizations) so that you have the maximum amount of resources to your sites. Keep in mind that your node hardware and how loaded it is with other VPS accounts will play a significant part in your performance.

    What host are you with? It will depend significantly on how loaded the host server is.
    If you can give more accurate figures on visits (maybe some numbers from google analytics if you use it) it should help, especially on the sites that are using databases, and how big are these, as that can start to eat up alot of your RAM.

    Overall, would it be good for a local starter webhosting company? The vps is located at Burst.net.

    VPS's are a great way for web hosting businesses to start off, as you get the same control as you would with a dedicated server, rather than just re-selling of someone else. Just make sure you dont go overloading it, when the server load gets to around between 3 and 5 you need to start looking at getting another server, otherwise slow performance is going to give you a bad name

    Thank you for the tips Cloud Above. Because the VPS is pretty cheap, and i can keep up with the price it is going to be limited to 30-40 users per vps, and not more than 4 resellers (not on the same vps).

    The killer may be database access.

    A big web hosting service might have a powerfuk database server capable of processing hundreds of millions of bytes of disk data a second, shared by all the web sites. And it might have a couple of gigabytes of RAM for the database server to use as work areas.

    It might be able to execute in a second what your VPS could take more than a minute to do.

    Apart from the possible variation in the websites you put on it, the power / capacity of the VPS itself is also unknown.

    There really isn't enough information here. 1GB of SLM memory, or guaranteed, or burst? If it's OpenVZ it doesn't much matter anyway, since only the full user_beancounters will give any real clue about the memory that might be available for your VPS to use. And then there's the hard drive arrangement (SCSI / SAS / RAID) and all sorts of other variables you probably don't and can't know. Worst of all, you won't know how many VPSs are on the host machine, or whether / how much it's been oversold.

    In fact, probably the best indicators of capability would be the host's reputation and the price...

    $30/mo for 1g ram, cpanel and raid drives is lol, overselling maybe?
    Is it managed?

    No, its completely unmanaged. It is OpenVZ, 1+ reason for being cheaper.

    Hello,

    It depends a lot on the content of the domain, if these are small web sites with static content, for example, you will most likely be able to host them without any problems, for example if your server runs out of RAM or runs scripts that impact other VPS servers on the parent node. Usually a VPS account has a hard time with more than a couple of hundred sites.

    the killer should be database access. i believe 5-6 the maximum dynamic sites joomla, forums etc, so the virtual to be accesible and not overloaded. If your sites get 1000 visitors per day you will see that in practice
    Static a vps can stand many.

    It all depends how much resources each site will consume.

    Looking at your VPS configuration, it seems like you will be able to host about 50 sites without a problem, provided that they are not highly resource intensive and have moderate traffic to each site.
