Average Needed VPS Specs

May 20, 2009

What would the average person looking for a VPS look for? I know each customer is different but I am talking just the most common. I am looking for specs to look for if I do a review site. That way I will review the type of VPS's most people are looking for.

I am looking for sellers to perhaps post their best selling VPS plan.

VPS Specs Needed For OpenVPN?

Mar 25, 2008

If I wanted to install OpenVPN to create a personal VPN (low bandwith/CPU) what kind of minimum specs should I be looking into?

I contacted Panix.com to enquiry about their $10/month shell account I asked them about getting OpenVPN installed and they replied something like they do not allow it in the shell because it needs a server with a higher spec, which is odd to me.

What Server Specs Do I Need To Do This

Feb 13, 2009

My site serves a few hundred people, and has very heavy database usage (every page).

But, for a two hour period EVERY day, it can server 5-10,000 at a tme - very strange, I know.

What kind of server set-up would I need?

I.e your answer may be... "Woah... You'll need 10 servers all doin abc"

I'm not too bothered about the detail - just "1 basic server would be enough - $100" - just an idea - I really have no clue.

I know this is a difficult question, and I'll get the usual - depends on xyz etc. - but even if your answer is "You'll need between 10-50 servers" - it at least gives me an idea.

Proxy VPS Specs

Oct 20, 2008

I was wondering.. which specs does a VPS need to have where proxies will be hosted on?

I will be using LXadmin as my control panel and Glype as my script.

I had an eye on the 5$ per Month VPS special of thenynoc... should that do the trick?
Super VPS


10GB Space
1,000GB Transfer
2 IP Addresses

Choice of operating systems (CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSuse)

How many proxies can you host on that VPS with those specs?

Anyone Else Offering VPS With These Specs

Jan 29, 2008

I have a small VPS with Serverways and to be honest I have had no problems with it for a week or so - suprising when you see the spec!

My question is - are there any other providers around the globe (looking for VPS servers all over the place) that would sell me a VPS with the following specs:

100 MB RAM
10GB SATA (Could probably do with less if needed)
No control panel
100GB Bandwidth on- 100mbps port.
4.90 USD

Vps Specs To Set Up A Forum

Aug 27, 2008

We're setting up a vBulletin forum, and I'd like to know what we'll need from a vps. We expect 5000-10000 hits a day, maybe 30-60 users on at a time, and we'd like to keep quick load speeds.

So how much ram would we need to achieve fast speeds?

How many mysql database might we need (just roughly for such a sized forum)?

How much bandwidth will we need?

Plus any other info you can give!

I could also do with some VPS hosting recommendations. We'll be adding other sites (with less traffic) in the VERY near future, so we'd like them to be accomodated. A host with good support/ response time is a must, and one with excellent uptime to!

New Server Specs

Mar 4, 2007

I've been commissioned to setup and run a server for a client. It's a site where people can upload and show their photos in a rather large community. Daily users peaking at around 5.000 these days. He also has a large and very active forum for his 30.000 members. Forum is run on homebuild scripts (compares to Vbulletin).

He insists on getting a server that has absolutely no lag or other response time and is willing to pay what ever it costs.

I was thinking about setting up a system with:Xeon Dual core
4*500GB RAID
10 MBPS Port
Would a server like that do the job?

Was thinking about co-locating it to a Level3 center.

Web Server Specs

Nov 18, 2007

I have been hired to build a web server for a fellow student at school. I am used to building desktops for personal use but this is my first time putting together a web server so I just wanted to verify with you web hosting pros what should go in it.

Purpose of server: He wants a server that is capable of hosting a website mostly dedicated to a vBulletin community. He wants it to support a community of 30,000 members with a max of 1000 active users. He is also active in local politics and wants to host some local candidates web pages but I assume since they are local candidates and not very well known and most likely going to be very static pages this wont cause much of an extra load.

Limitations:I know the connection is going to be a likely place for a bottle neck but he wants to have a server that is capable of hosting the above mentioned type of load and will upgrade the his connection as needed. Also he does not know how to use Linux or Unix so a windows based system would be strongly preferred even though its generally considered worse.

what is the most necessary specs on such a system? I would greatly appreciate any input.

Web Server Specs

Apr 6, 2007

What do you think are good specs for web servers? We've been usually buying dual processor, dual core, 2gb ram, 2x36gb 15k scsi in raid-1 servers, but I wonder if we could get away with significantly less.

Is it better to have multiple, cheaper servers for Apache? What are some example specs?

What about something like this:

Intel Xeon 5130 2.00GHz 1333MHz 4MB DC x 1
2GB FB-DIMM - DDR II - 667 MHz (2x1GB) x 1
74GB S-ATA 10000 RPM ... OR ... 250GB S-ATA 7200 RPM ... OR ... 36 GB SCSI 15000 RPM

Average T1 Prices

Jan 4, 2007

I am considering adding offsite secondary backup servers in house on a full T1 (multiple? or a fractional T3?). Servers will be located in Ontario Canada. Does anyone know the average, upper, and lower cost for a full or even partial T1? I am trying to go as cheap as possible since the line probably wont be used unless the datacenter looses service.

If anyones had any experience with T1, as far as price, reliability, best providers etc

Mean Download Server Specs

Oct 19, 2009

I'm starting a file download site. I've done a lot of research and I'm currently planning a head for growth and scaling. Looking to serve around 250-500 thousand 5MB files a day.

I would like some input from people that KNOW what they are talking about, hopefully people that have hosted/ran similar sites.

The main question I need answered is what will be the first bottle neck for a single download server will run into when delivering the following.

File size = 10MB.
Number of downloads = As many 1.2mbit download streams as possible.

Example Server, lets say...
Intel 5405
8GB Ram
2x640GB RE3 Hardware Raid 1

Am I correct in assuming the bottle neck will be the HD's here? So would I be right in assuming this could handle around 200 concurrent downloads @ 1.2mbit(250mbit)?

Web Server Accesses Vs. Specs

Jul 24, 2009

I'm wondering what kind of web server load that people are dealing with when it comes to their web (Apache, IIS, Lighttpd, nginx, etc.) server.

What information I'm curious about: How many raw accesses your web server is dealing with in a given month, and what kind of hardware you have to serve those accesses?

If you have multiple servers, pick the one that has the most accesses in a month.

My results:

My server gets ~2,500,000 accesses a month (about 1 per second) on Apache. The server is a AMD Athlon 64 3800+, 1GB RAM. Hardware handles those requests with no problems.

Server Specs For VPS Hosting

Apr 29, 2009

I've been getting requests for a VPS hosting from a few clients and I was wondering what everybody's input on the best server hardware configuration for a hypervm server is.

Was thinking something along the lines of the following server configuration:

Quad core processor(s)
16gbs of ram
2x 100GB RAID 1 Main HDD (Do I need this much space?)

That would allow me to keep the main OS separate and redundant due to HDD failure and leave the VM's on a RAID 5 for the same reason.

What would you change or advise me to do on this configuration? The goal is to host as many VM's as the processor/ram/HDD's will allow without much of a performance hit.

how many we can host with this configuration? Obviously depends on the packages that I haven't thought about yet.

Email Server Specs

Jun 23, 2008

At the moment I have two Clovertown boxes at Softlayer with 4GB of ram. One has a couple of mirrored SATA disks and the other has raid 5 on some SAS disks. Both boxes have 1GB ports.

I'm running MDaemon not sure if its the right choice on both.

There arent many user accounts listed as most of emails goto and come from application servers, where they are basically loaded into a database.

My issue is most emails go out on one mail server. Sometimes there are 100,000 messages in the queue which then effects icoming mail processing. At times it can take hours for a message to get through the box. This results in issues as the email verfication system I use for end user accounts requires them to reply to a message, which of course if it takes hours to get into an account is no good.

Im debating about adding another box to the mix or replacing the two current mail servers (I could use them to do something else) with something like a 4xquad core job with 16GB of ram.

However does anyone have any suggestions on any different mail servers.

I dont want to run exchange, I have that on another box (lol) for my email already and I dont want something which is really going to require a lot of user input to keep running

Managed VPS, Detailed Specs

Jul 14, 2008

I run several low-traffic websites and I'm looking for a VPS that can handle them all.

What I need:

15 GB Storage
256 RAM burstable to at least 512 MB
200 GB Transfer (I use way lower than this ALWAYS)
Unlimited domains
Fully managed
$1 IP addresses
Adult friendly (everything is legal, no sick stuff, no mailing)

I run two small vBulletin boards, 11 installations of WordPress (low traffic though) and looking to expand to at least 20, two image hosting services for the boards (most of the traffic comes from here), 1 Joomla installation (extremely low traffic), and other unimportant stuff. I think the above specs should be sufficient.

Different Class C's are a plus
Service outside of the US with established VPS providers are a plus
Proven fast support ticket response times are a plus
Initial VPS hardening is a plus
Migration support a plus
ICQ/Skype support a plus

Server Specs / Capacity

Jan 9, 2007

I would like some advice and to see if this is a good approach to setup a server / web business.

The idea is to start off providing very basic web hosting functionality for smaller sites.

I was thinking about purchasing two similar or identical servers (RAID1 disks) + server fully mirrored.

In case 1 falls out the 2nd one takes over. DNS services is at startup located on other servers in the DC.

If this works out then I'd be looking at increasing servers with clusters or LVS.

I'm having a very hard time finding resources and information of the load and server capacity.

I was thinking about a system like this:

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 , RAID 1 SATA disks (preferrably Raptor), 2 GB of RAM.

This would then be running LAMP. I would limit the traffic to 5-10GB transfer / month per account.
(most account would not nearly get up to this figure).

Is there a ballpark figure at about how many web sites this server could handle ?
Are we talking about 50 ? 20 ? 100 ?

Keep in mind that it is dedicated to me, as well as fully redundant from Verio/NTT and Level3.
