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 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?

Where Can I Find 10+ Tb Bandwidth

Sep 4, 2008

Here's my situation:

I run a site that does a lot of transfers AND uses a lot of CPU resources. I think I would like to get two different hosting plans to deal with these different patterns of usage, but where can I find a good host offering lots of bandwidth that is content to have it actually used? I've been with DreamHost for a while but they don't allow "data archiving" or whatever (and I have arguments against their claims but it's neither here nor there). So, really, where the heck can a guy find a good host offering plenty of space and bandwidth? Keep in mind I need pretty much no CPU power with such a plan; the web server can be stone cold stupid for all I care, as I can just get a VPS to run the CPU-intensive part of my site!

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.

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.

Extremely High Bandwidth Server

May 1, 2008

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.

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?

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?

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.

Suspecting Server Is Causing High Bandwidth Usage

Jun 21, 2009

For the past few days, one of the server is causing a bandwidth utilization surge for the entire rack on almost daily basis. It happen for a few minutes and it went off then it will be the same thing again the next day. When the surge is happening, most of the servers on the same segment will be inaccessible for the few minutes.

The bandwidth utilization graph for my rack is recording an abnormal surge from (6mbps --> 90mbps) for the few minutes. My MRTG is showing 2 of the Plesk servers giving the problem but the NOC guys said it the Cpanel that causing the problem.

I tried logging in to both servers but could not find what's the cause for this.

High Server Load / High Swap / Lots Of Httpd

Feb 20, 2008

I have a cPanel server with 4GB RAM

My server hangs time to time, once or twice a day. This is the last status when it happens.

Server Load 75.90 (2 cpus)
Memory Used 92 %
Swap Used 65.78 %

When I was still inside SSH when it happens, the processes I can see inside "top" are a lot of httpd processes.

So I "killall -9 httpd", I had to do it 30~40 times

#killall -9 httpd
#killall -9 httpd
#killall -9 httpd
x 30~40 times until no pid process found & the server load is back to normal.

Before that, I check httpd fullstatus, they look very normal, same goes to what I see inside WHM Apache status & cpu usage status.

At first I thought it was a memory problem after consulting with a server admin, so I replaced all 4GB new ram stick (such a waste)
