    Thanks for asking your question. The number of domains and sites you can host would depend on the memory and data transfer you allocate to each site. You could host hundreds of very small sites on that server. On the other hand it would not be big enough to host a single huge site.

    In relation to security can you tell us where the server is located and is it a managed server?

    Presently i am planing to buy server from USA and from UK or GERMANY

    They are fully managed server


    and i am planing to two different web hosting website
    one of them will be so called unlimited or unmetered plans
    { condition will be applied }

    and another will be limited plans and cheap hosting like 1 $
    like 500 mb to 3000 mb web space and bandwidth from 100 gb to unmetered

    for unlimited how many website can i host signal server

    if necessary i can add more servers or hard disk

    and how many for limited plans

    Hi,
    First thing Core2Quad is perfect for web hosting company. Second, HDD is less it should be at least 4 X 500GB to load up to 400 Accounts minimum (Using 150Mb on average). The question you asked is little bit hard to answer as no one can tell how many account can be hosted because it depends upon the usage. I think the minimum on my experience can be 300 to 400 if you want your sites to be load fast.

    Just a question if you do not mind, from whom you are purchasing Server.

    Thanks

    i don't think even 500gb less for a web hosting server

    i have friend's who have web hosting account

    For one of then who manages around 500 domain names in his one server

    he mention only 70GB is used till now even though he is have 750 gb hdd in his server

    i have even learn same thing from other web hosting guys

    but they advise have 500 to 1000gb

    so i don't think it wont be problem

    if i have 1000gb hdd and have 500 clients every one while get around 2gb space

    and and according to me majority of website take less than 500mb space....only few take more space so majority of company have no problem with disk space

    the only problem they face is the bandwidth

    this is where i am stuck ...i have also got few same suggestion
    as.... ...i want to provided the best service as much as possible to my clients

    i am planing of
    Theplantand Peer1

    I am have talks with other also

    and i am planing of getting ICANN Accredited only after 6 mounts also

    You can get Unmetered Bandwith with many DC's. I think you do not know that other things also requires space in it comes Mails, Software installation on the server, backups, and databases. They take space separately.
    I think you should not look at it because if you want to provide good service then you should be ready for the next server or extra HDDs.


    Would suggest Theplanet I think there servers and service are superb. We have currently two servers with them and they are fantastic.

    Am I right in saying that if your server is fully managed, the server supplier will look after and manage security? You could ask them what level of security protection they provide. You will also want to think about what back up services you can provide for your customers.

    Have you considered starting with a shared hosting plan or even a VPS? You could move to a dedicated server when your business grows and you have more customers.

    Are you starting the business on your own or do you have a partner?

    Ya they will manage security ....but even they we should always be carefully
    and try few things from our side also

    Ya i am planing of two types of backup .....! which are secret
    which will be the best back up service in the industry

    I am planing of starting with the dedicated server as ....i am planing to reach 15,000 to 25,000 clients whiten 3 to 6 mounts

    At present i am planing to starting it by myself only

    Sounds great realitybites.in, you are certainly very ambitious and I wish you the very best of luck with everything. If you are planning on having that many customers you will need a good support team in place to provide them with the technical support they need.

    Will you be providing any free hosting packages?

    and for non English country i can provide e-mail support and if possible Live chat

    and about free hosting

    providing free hosting is not a problem

    but main problem is ....there is lot spam and all kind stupid stuff going on

    so free hosting is bit problem

    .....................................................................................................
    i am also planing of free hosting if they buy domain name

    as 25% of website's have signal page website they ....can use this service

    and another 15 to 20 % have website of 4 to 6 pages

    once i reach 1000+ domain name i will apply for ICANN Accredited

    An Irish company provided a service similar to this for some time. Although it came in for some criticism due to the price they charged for a domain, I thought it was very useful for any new webmaster with just one site. They charged €35 for domain name registration but the domain came with a small hosting account for one year. Good value for their target customers. The fact that the domains are paid for and you collect customer contact details should do a lot to keep out the spammers you mention.

    I am planing of charging $10+ per domain ( AS FEW DOMAIN ARE EXPENSIVE )

    The web space and bandwidth will be sufficient for them ( for 1 to 10 pages website )
