Any Experience With Dedicated Hosting? (I Need High Bandwidth)

Jul 20, 2005

I'm currently running a vBulletin message board with about 26,000 members. At any given time there are about 200 members actively posting.

Right now, we're on a dedicated server with Ilon hosting, however, my members are still complaining that the site runs VERY slowly when there are lots of members online.

To make matters worse, I want to launch a weekly podcast for them, so I'll need even MORE bandwidth. is offering dedicated server accounts with high bandwidth limits (ie 2000 GB). Does anyone have any experience with them? ...

Experience With GoDaddy Hosting?

Mar 21, 2008

I'm new to building websites. Hope someone can help with answering a few questions about GoDaddy.

1. Has anyone had experience with GoDaddy hosting? How good is their service and pricing? I heard that they have a proprietary control panel, which may make it harder to switch hosts down the road if needed?

2. When I compare GoDaddy's hosting plans, with a Shared Hosting plan, for $14.99/month you can get 300GB diskspace and 3000GB Transfer.

With dedicated server, for $79.99/month you get 120GB diskspace and 500GB Bandwidth.
What exactly is the difference between "Transfer" and "Bandwidth" in this case?

And based on the numbers, it appears that the Shared hosting plan allows more diskspace and transfer than the Dedicated server plan? What am I missing here?

3. If I have a website that is mostly text-based with virtually no pictures, graphics or video, what type of traffic can I support with a Shared hosting plan that offers 300GB diskspace and 3000GB Transfer.

Web Hosting That Specializes In High Bandwidth

Sep 14, 2008

I have a dedicated server currently hosted over by Aplus.NET

I have a 3000 GB Monthly Transfer limit and we have been going over this limit for the past few months. This has resulted in a large sum of overage fees.

I am looking to go to another hosting company that is just as good as Aplus.NET, if not better... with a better traffic rate. A friend told me about and I wanted to know how good of a company they were. What are some other top reliable hosting companies with premium servers and that specialize in unmetered bandwidth?

Godaddy Grid Hosting Mean Dedicated Servers Are Dead

Mar 27, 2009

I was looking at Godaddy's grid servers and it says you can have unlimited concurrent connections:


With dedicated servers if you wanted to have 2 million concurrent users you would need hundreds of dedicated servers in a cluster, but Godaddy grid hosting can do this for $4.99/month:


Of course currently give users unlimited compute cycles so if they start charging it could increase the price but godaddy don't charge for ram. Of course if you needed more bandwidth you can buy more.

Sure, Godaddy grid hosting doesn't allow videos on your server(embed's allowed) but you wanted to have a website that was at the top of digg and worldwide media outlets reported it, Godady grid hosting would be great for this.

So i guess if i had to choose between a dedicated server and godaddy grid hosting for a forum, i would choose grid hosting because i can have unlimited users online at the same time and not have to worry about cpu load.

Cheap High Transfer/bandwidth Hosting

May 22, 2008

I know you get what you pay for with hosting, but with the ridiculous overselling going on I am finding it hard to work out how much bandwidth I can genuinely expect to get with about 500MB space and 99%+ (preferably more like 99.5%) uptime for $5/month.

I will be using all this bandwidth for hosting legal mp3s (sanctioned for promotional use by labels and artists), and would prefer the host to be based in the US or UK.

High Traffic Hosting Solution (dedicated Server?)

Jul 23, 2007

I'm working on launching this online store for a poster designer, and we're becoming more and more aware that we need a really robust and fast server. This site is looking at extremely high levels of activity whenever this designer posts a new poster. We're talking 1700 people surfing the store (downloading med-high resolution poster images) and 300 posters sold in 16 seconds kind of thing.

So, we need a really robust hosting, to work with PHP5 and MYSQL.

My previous go-to hosting provider was Lunarpages, but their customer service has gone down the crapper, and I've just about had it with them. My main questions are:
Should I be looking into getting a dedicated server, or are there hosting companies that can handle this kind of traffic on a shared server? I don't have experience administrating a server, so if we got a dedicated one we would have to pay the host to do at least some of the setup/administration, I would assume?
Dedicated server or not, what's a hosting company that has really good customer service, where we can be assured of getting somebody knowledgeable without having to wait on hold for 20 (or even 10) minutes?

Does Anyone Have Experience With GoDaddy & Website Tonight??

Jan 2, 2009

I am a newly minted freelance designer who is working on one of my first jobs. I redesigned a 12-page site and put it on my IPower space for testing. It looks and works great and the client seems very pleased. But I am having some issues now that I am ready to hand it over.

My client uses GoDaddy for domain & hosting. She uses a tool of theirs called Website Tonight to update. I foolishly assumed that at some point in the process I would be able to FTP my files over to the GoDaddy account (I have all the client's account info) and she would still be able to use Website Tonight for updating. When I tried to FTP with Filezilla I was unable to. Ditto for the FTP tool on the GoDaddy site. When I wrote their support team I was told that this account is not able to use FTP; that the only way to update is through Website Tonight.

Does anyone have any experience working on GoDaddy sites? Is there a workaround for getting HTML & CSS files on their server? I refuse to believe that there is no way for me to move my stuff over to this account, but this is what the GoDaddy folks are essentially telling me.

High Bandwidth VPS

Jan 2, 2009

I host a podcast that's rapidly gaining popularity. At the moment, we push about 100gb/day of transfer for the episodes, but could easily double that in the next few months. I need a host that does at least 2tb a month with the ability to later upgrade to more. My operating budget is about 110$/month, but could go a little higher if needed.

Most of our activity is composed of sending files, so usage is pretty low. I'd probably only need a few gb to store the actual content (30mb mp3 files). It's also important that Adult material is allowed (the content of the audio podcast is explicit).

I'm aware of FDC and AT&T, but would like any other recommendations you guys could give.

Dedicated Host With GoDaddy Performance

May 8, 2008

We've been using GoDaddy as our dedicated host for about 2 years now. Throughout this time our performance with them has slowed. We have 2 eCommerce websites that receive moderate traffic but not outrageous and a few personal websites for ourselves that get roughly nil. Our entire server uses maybe 60GB of traffic a month as reported by plesk.

A fairly consistent problem we have however is page load time. Our server's CPU load reported by uptime is usually very low in the 0.05-0.15 range even during peak hours. So we doubt that the CPU is the problem. Additionally I have tried saving a static copy of our index page and uploading it to another part of the server and the load time between the static and dynamically generated page appears to be identical.

It appears as though our server allows at max 1-2 connections a time per IP address, or perhaps even globally, to receive data at one time. If I load our index page which is fairly image intensive it takes quite some time for the page to load in. It appears as though 1-2 images at a time are typically loading and that's about the limit. My ping time to the server is usually 50-60ms which really doesn't seem too bad to me, or perhaps I am wrong. If I hop over to a site like Google News however their front page contains probably 50 images and they seem to all load in a matter of moments and my ping to is actually worse than my ping time to my own server.

For the lifting our server does I feel it's fairly beefy even given that it's a machine approaching 2 years old. It's a P4 3GHz w/ HT, 2GB RAM, 120GB RAID1 HD. The machine we had prior from another host was a Duron 1400 (iirc) w/ around 512MB RAM and 60GB HD and it didn't stumble on these tasks the way our server with GoDaddy has - again leading me to believe it's either some configuration option or is it just the quality of the GoDaddy network that is leading to these slow load times or page timeouts all together.

We recently purchased a new server with GoDaddy a few months ago and are preparing to migrate our current server to the new box - however given the worsening problems with load times we are simply considering moving elsewhere if it's not something that can be fixed with a config file or in Plesk.

High Bandwidth = Unfunctional FTP

Apr 9, 2009

I have an unmetered server capped at 100Mbps.

The server is a media server, used to host heavy media files such as videos, flash and so forth. (there is no website on the server, just media files)

Everything works fine, all the media loads without a problem. Downloads are fast.

However, I have big trouble uploading stuffs. The FTP is either extremely slow or disconnects me.

I talked to my host, and they say the server is hitting 100Mbps bandwidth limit, and I should upgrade to 200Mbps. However, all my videos and media load fine, there are no problems except for the FTP.

Are there any solutions to this? I don't want to spend money on another 100Mbps just for FTP, especially when everything else is working without a glitch.

High Bandwidth Host

Aug 20, 2008

I have a client who has came to me for advice on his web site. I own a dedicated server and manage it using PLESK. I do pretty well managing it but I'm definitely not an expert on hosting by any means. So I need your help.

He is starting a new web site and he is going to do radio advertising on a lot of stations and expects to get a lot of hits. The web site seems to be pretty small with only a few pages of text and minimal pictures, so I don't think it will use that much just by the site being so small.

But anyway, I want him and me to feel comfortable that the site is not going to go down no matter how many hits he gets. How do I guesstimate this?

What are some good hosting companies that offer high bandwidth and protect you from overage charges -- or at least charge little for overages. I'm looking to spend less than $80/month. Also, do you have any idea: How many users will 10GB bandwidth cover if it's only a 5 page site with one picture on each page and 5 paragraphs of text just to get an idea.

Firewall - High Bandwidth

Extremely High Bandwidth Server

today i got a message from a client asking about hosting his video himself, catch is, he has a shitload of viewers, im looking at servers in the range of quad core (maybe dual quad), 8gig, 4 hdd raid10, gige uplink, however the kicker, depending on how out of whack my estimates are, 100 to 400mbit SUSTAINED upstream (spiking all the way to max'n that 'little' gige pipe)

Has anyone got suggestions on who i should even consider for this? I'm a bit dumbfounded myself as i'v never even thought about a server on this much sustained bandwidth before today.

Find A High Bandwidth VPS Solution

Nov 28, 2007

I'm picking up a client who is a video production company and hosts a lot of their work for their clients on the web. They have two sites right now for two different branches of what they do, but they are beginning to scale up a bit and want to switch from a local ISP hosting package to something more commercial. I like the idea of a VPS, but their current budget is rather low. Because of that, I am a bit attracted to hosting packages from site5 and dreamhost (both of which I've heard good and bad things about).

Ideally, I would be looking for a VPS along the lines of:

50-75GB disk space
256-512MB RAM
750GB-1TB Bandwidth
Linux OS with Shell Access
cPanel or Plesk Control panel

It'd be nice to keep their budget around $50/mo, but I know that might be asking a lot. They have two websites currently for their production needs. What would be the advantages of a VPS over multiple hosting accounts at Site5 ($7.50/mo) or Dreamhost ($6/mo)?

High Volume, Low(er) Cost Bandwidth In Panama

Jul 6, 2009

I'm looking at a project that would need to be located in Panama for server co-location.

It will be very bandwidth intensive, requiring 100 megabits to start and moving up from there. Going with a slightly more "value" oriented provider provided there's a backup (even lower bandwidth) available would be an option, as this application would tolerate limited periods of reduced bandwidth.

Can anybody point me in the direction of some data centers that might be worth looking at? Are there any bandwidth providers down there with a real value focus?

Right now, the best I've seen is $99/megabit from [url] I'm expecting bandwidth to cost more down in Panama, but I'd really like to push this number lower.

Server Sending High Outbound Bandwidth

Nov 6, 2008

My datacenter has told me about my server sending high amount of outbound bandwidth from my server:

During the attack time my email logs, I found several messages:
cpdavd failed @ Thu Nov 6 12:21:18 2008. A restart was attempted

Question #1. How can I check which user is using cpdavd (connect from their PC to the home folder)

I suspect someone is connecting their PC to my server and uses very high bandwidth!

The datacenter says the attack is still going on when they plug in the server.

Question #2. How can I check what is sending outgoing traffic on the server right now?

Is The Bandwidth The Reason Server Prices Are High Or

Sep 12, 2008

Like if you try to make your own server, it would cost a few thousand right? Or bought one from IBM or something. If you rent a server, it could cost you like double that I notice or even more in a period of a year.

I was looking at the prices of Xeon 5420 and they are like only 400 or something. Motherboard, ram, hdd's shouldn't amount to too much right?

And companies are charging like 50 bucks a month for a 2 gigs of ram.

Or am I actually looking at this wrong and actually am looking at desktop components? So is bandwidth the cost for these prices? In the long run aren't people being ripped off?

Server Setup For MySQL + High Bandwidth

Jun 15, 2008

if I could get some input on this. Currently I'm running an Opteron 246, 2GB RAM with 2TB bandwidth/mo. I run a single site which is currently 99% HTML, along with an invision forum which is fairly popular. I get about 300-400k pageviews per day.

Right now the server is able to handle this stuff without much of a problem, and the average CPU load is between .5 and 3 (after a TON of tweaking!) - the only exception is when the forum db is being backed up/optimized, which isn't a huge problem since it happens during the off hours.

The problem is that I'm running out of bandwidth quickly, and need to come up with some kind of solution soon. My current provider offers bandwidth at $1/GB, which to me seems crazy compared to other providers, so that's not really an option.

I was thinking about switching to a more affordable provider and upgrading hardware, but I'm not sure what the best approach would be. I'm in the process of moving my HTML content over to a PHP-powered CMS, so I need to make sure whatever I do can handle that... What might be a decent setup for a site like mine which consumes a lot of bandwidth and will probably need more CPU power in the near future for PHP/MySQL stuff?

Need Dedicated Servers (Download Static Content) 1and1, GoDaddy, ...

May 15, 2008

Ok, I'm a few lost about which dedicated server to choose.

First, I need 2 dedicated servers. These servers are only to download static content.

Downloadable files are small (50-400k).

I'll use lightweight server.

If there are too many user, I'll buy another server.

I search for excellent uptime, US server and fast download server.

I've visited some popular web hosting but if you know better, lets me know

Price (Root Server): $99
CPU: Single Core AMD Athlon 64 3500+ 2.2 GHz
HD: 2 x 160 GB
Bandwidth: 2,000 GB
Bandwidth Cap: 100 Mbps

Price: $68
CPU: Celeron 2.0GHz
HD: 1 x 120GB
Bandwidth: 500GB
Bandwidth Cap: 10-20 Mbps

Also, the price between 1and1 and GoDaddy is $31 but 1and1 give more on cpu, hd, bandwidth(4x), connection...

One of my question is 1and1 offers a average price for dedicated server or GoDaddy spends a part of money with Amanda, Candice and Danica?

Do you have some suggestion for dedicated server or web hosting?
