How Many Sites Do You Host

May 24, 2009

I did a search on the forum bu it exploded so I thought I would post the question - sorry if it's been asked.

I would like to know how many sites are commonly hosted on a dedicated server..

Say - 4 gigs of RAM, and a Q9300 (for example).

I know that some companies put 600 - 800 sites on the server and then customers talk about load and etc etc.. So, I just wanted to get a feel for how many sites/server..

One Host For 2 Different Sites

Apr 18, 2008

I have a godaddy deluxe Linux hosting plan for the next year. I'm wondering how I can host my two sites on that plan. According to GoDaddy it's possible but how can I do that and have each site separately? It says the only way would be to have it for other site but I don't want that. I want it to be so you visit one site and it takes you to that exact site.

How To Move Sites From One Host To Another

Jun 27, 2008

how to move my web sites from one host to another?

I believe my new host will happily do so.. and, I'd really like to know how to do it myself.

Two of the sites have blogs with lots of posts on them.

If you know of any video tutorials, I'd appreciate it.

I've watched one on backing up the site to "remote ftp server". I do not know what that means and have not been able to find a description/definition.

Host My Own Sites - Is It Practical

Sep 22, 2008

I'm thinking of using one of my computers at home as a dedicated server to host my own sites, and I would like to get your opinion guys on whether that would be a practical thing to do or not.

Dedicated Server: I put together;

Intel Pentium Dual Core 2.8GHz
1TB Seagate HD
GeForce 9800 GX2 1GB
Gigabit LAN
Windows XP Pro / IIS 5.1
Smart Firewall/Router Symantec
APC Smart-UPS battery (Full 15 hrs.)

Dedicated Connection: Business account will run me $80 CDN/month;

Speed Download - Up to 16 Mbps
Speed Upload - Up to 1 Mbps
Transfer/month - 200 GB
IP Addresses - 2 dynamic & 1 reserved.

The Sites:

Both sites are Academic based - together they receive approx. 200,000 visits a month / 50 to 60 GB transfer and growing. I'm also in process of publishing a 3rd site, but over all, I anticipate the 3 sites transfer to hover around 100GB/mo unless Digg/StumbleUpon/Google all decide to have an orgy-traffic linkage at once and push it higher.

Approximately How Many Sites Can I Host..

Nov 1, 2007

Say if i choose a plan with specs something like below

Space : 20 GB (Max)
Bandwidth : 200 GB (Min)
RAM : 384 MB

I will be having Plesk (Unlimited), Powerpack, TOMCAT JSP , MS Access & MS SQL Express installed.

Now my question is as approximately how many Domains / end user control panels can i host on the VPS (say most of my client's websites will get a max of 100 visitors per day and they are all not very heavy resource consuming websites. They are websites with around 50 pages and a single MS SQL database which is queried for Login info and other trivial information that is stored in it.)

I know it is very hard to guess, but a conservative figure will do.

Google UK: Getting .com Sites Listed? Better To Host In The UK?

Jun 8, 2007

I did a site for a UK company that has a .com address, and for various reasons the site is hosted in the US. Unfortunately the site doesn't appear under the google search for pages in the UK.

One reason I chose the US hosting company is that they provide ColdFusion hosting, and my plan is to upgrade the site to use ColdFusion in the near future.

They do also have the address registered, which is currently set to forward to the .com address, and that doesn't show up in google at all.

I'm thinking the solutions might be:

1) Move the .com hosting to the UK
2) Get additional hosting for the address (uk mirror)
3) Both?

The company is based in the UK, and provides holidays in Montenegro, primarily aiming at the UK market.

When I originally looked into it I could not find a UK host that provided ColdFusion and mySQL 5 - and those that had ColdFusion and other database applicaitons were far more expensive than the US one we're using currently.

What would be the best way forward?

Convenient Way To Host 20 Sites On 20 Different IP Blocks

Nov 22, 2008

What is the cheapest and easiest way to have say 20 different sites all on different IPs?
Just buy 20 different cheap hosting accounts?

Or can a reseller account or server add different IPs per site? And I mean a pretty big difference in IP not just last number.

All very small sites, about 3mbs space needed, and probably not even a gig of bandwidth a month.

Moving Large Sites From One Host To Another

Oct 4, 2008

I have to move some large websites from one host to another. The websites contain data about 1 - 3 GB, and my internet connection here is not that fast, so that downloading and uploading would take many hours. Unfortunately I have no SSH-Access to both accounts (old and new one), so I have to make it by FTP.

So I tried to make a tar file and moved it from the old to the new host. I made a tar archive of the whole webfolder (I used php to execute the shell commmands) and moved it by ftp to the new host. But now Ive got troubles when extracting the archive on the new host: the extracted files are obviously created by the wrong user, so I cant delete or access them by ftp.

So Im trying to find other solutions to fix these problems. Maybe someone else had the same problems and could give me advice how to move large sites? Or do you know php-applications that can directly connect one host accout to another via ftp?

Mar 5, 2007

Compared to others my sites may not be that big but I have one site that is 5 gigs and another that is about 9 gigs. I was wonder what is the best or most recommend way to transfer these sites to a new host.

I tried downloading the whole site using FireFtp but always seem to get about 3rd of the way done and something messes up the conection. Are there any better tools or methods to do this.

I also have pretty large Dbs that I'll need to transfer as well.

Tuning Sites For MySQL

Jun 16, 2008

What have you found to be the best tuning sites for MySQL?

I'm getting into a bit of trouble. We have a weather site, and with all of the traffic, we're getting a little tapped out. When the loads hit between 134 and 160, the mail clients start to time out. Apache is still pretty fast, although it takes a little longer once you cross loads of 80, 5 second page loads, but when it hits between 130 and 160, I'm seeing 15-20 second page loads. DA is impossible above 80 but SSH is still very workable. Apache is tweaked to the max. I've kicked up some of the sizes in MySQL several weeks ago, and that did it them. However, we're taking on about 22,000 to 25,000 uniques an hour now. We normally can handle that no problem, but people are asking for maps a lot more now with the flooding and all. That requires a lot of MySQL lookups and the CPU creating a lot more maps. The maps I already cache for the duration, which is 15 minutes. The only horse I have left to whip is MySQL. After that, it will probably be a move to FreeBSD 7, but I'd like to throw in a few tweaks yet before we do that.

Httpd Failed - Sites Don't Load - Host Can't Help

Jan 9, 2008

The last 2-3 days my websites on my vps all started acting funny. Randomly throughout the day they will all just stop loading. If you go to one of my sites they will just load and load and load and eventually time out after 5 minutes.

To fix this problem, all I have to do is reset Apache in my WHM. Everything will be fine for awhile until it decides to stop loading again.

I've been talking to tech support for 2 days. They're out of options. They tried banning some IPs as they thought I might be getting hacked. They tried moving me to a different host machine. They've checked all my logs... there are no errors or problems with the vps. The server load is always very low. Memory is always very low.

I run about 15-20 websites on this VPS. Two of them are vbulletin (v. 3.6.4 and v3.6.8) and all the rest are wordpress).

My VPS is hosted with ServInt.

Server Version: Apache/1.3.39 (Unix) PHP/5.2.4 mod_auth_passthrough/1.8 mod_log_bytes/1.2 mod_bwlimited/1.4
mysql (5.0.45-community-log)

I get these emails all day:
httpd failed @ Wed Jan 9 06:10:42 2008. A restart was attempted automagically.

I am completely out of ideas and options. Can anyone think of something? Think outside the box... make random suggestions. I don't care, I need to try something.

I most recently added 3 or so brand new websites to my vps about a week ago. However, they are just running wordpress so I can't imagine they're the problem.

Narrowing Down Sites MySQL Cpu Usage

Jul 27, 2008

I'm no SQL expert so I'm not exactly sure what to look for in-depth here. However, I noticed that MySQL would periodically raise to 98% cpu usage in top. So, I checked it out and turns out every time you load the front page of a site I host it takes about 30 seconds to load and its during that time that MySQL is freaking out.

I know the user relies heavily on MySQL, however I want to try to narrow down the problem as much as possible for them. Any recommendations on what else to look for?

What Sites Are Best For MySQL/Apache Optimization

Jan 27, 2007

I just switched to a new server - I went from a Dual Opteron 248 with 3GB of RAM to a Dual Clovertown with 4GB of RAM. Yet, despite having mild traffic right now, my load is rather high and my memory usage is like 80% (which is ridiculous, since that would mean I would be maxing out on the old box).

For some reason, my servers usually lose access when I get around 400 people on TEXT-BASED, non-MySQL pages? How is that possible? I have really solid servers, yet people running basic Pentiums with 1 or 2GB never run into this issue.

Is there any good, cheap site that would be able to properly optimize mySQL and Apache to lower the load and figure out why the memory usage is so high? Platinum Server Management never really got this done, so even though they're great for other support issues, please don't recommend them.

How Do I Configure Multiple FTP Sites On IIS 6 That Uses Host Header Names

Jan 31, 2007

I have been tasked with setting up IIS6 to run 10 different sites. We will be using the Host Header Names approach as I do not have 10 IP addresses. I want to allow clients to upload/download to their site via FTP. My IIS6 books have examples of how to setup separate FTP sites for individual IP addresses, how do I accomplish this when using Host Headers? I just need to be pointed in the right direction.

Will 2 Ecommerce Sites Sharing 1 Mysql On 1 VPS Effect SEO

Nov 28, 2007

I have 2 ecommerce sites now hosted at 2 different shared locations, both sites offer same exact products and pricing. I am in the process of elancing out the recode/rebuild for both sites to share one mysql database, cart and to be housed together in one VPS.

I plan to put them both on 1 windows VPS (they are asp) each with its own separate IP but have heard this can cause problems with search engines especially google. I have great natural organic right now (1st position for 5 of my demo keywords) and dont want to put that at risk but getting really tired of 2 separate backends, carts, hosting etc..

Best Host For ASP/PHP/mySQL

Feb 24, 2009

My current web host (SectorLink) has been acting flaky lately so I'm in the market for a My requirements are at least 6GB of space, the ability to run multiple websites on the same account (I'm currently at 7) and ASP, PHP, and mySQL capabilities. I'd also like the price to be competitive with what I'm currently paying ($11/month) though I'm willing to go up a bit.

I'm currently looking at 3 hosts, but I'm open to any suggestions. My short list right now includes:

HostGator - Not a Windows host, I know (though they're working on Windows plans), but they do offer ChiliSoft ASP capabilities. This host would give me unlimited space and domains for $14.95 per month.

AllReseller - This host would give me 50GB of space and unlimited domains for $11.95 a month.

Aspnix - This host would give me 10GB of space and 7 domains for $7.77 a month.
Has anyone used any of these hosts? What were your experiences with them? Could you recommend any other hosts? Side Question to any classic ASP developers out there: Have you used ChiliSoft ASP and, if so, how good is it at running scripts originally written for IIS?

Mysql And Ms Sql Host

Nov 7, 2007

I am trying to find a reliable host that can provide both mysql and ms sql for the same site. I know this is not how the site should be designed, and a complete redesign is in the works to streamline everything to mysql, but for now I need a host that can provide both. Our current host is absolutely horrible ( as there is an excessive amount of downtime (typically a few times/day for various periods of time). Thus far the only one I have been able to find is Mosso, but it seems a lot of people on here are anti-mosso, or have had problems with mosso.
