if a site is getting around 50,000 unique visitors a month and using up 1TB of bandwith, what type of unmetered server should i get ? would 100mbps be right ? also if you could post them here with cost, i will check it out.
recently i got this 2 website for dedicate server both are given such a cheap price which i can afford but i dont know about this site i also search hear i dont find any bad information about this 2 servers. but one thing i saw unmeteredservers has 24/7/365 live chat help which i think more comfortable with me on other side burstnet gives same configuration in low rate but they dont have live chat support so i want to know which server is best
I am trying to have vps because I have 130 websites in shared server.
My current reseller account has WHM/Cpanel, WHMReseller installed. - no ssh access
I think need VPS + Unmetered shared reseller(currently have one) for 2 reaseons. 1. backup/restore 2. Disk space
1. backup/restore ======================= I had a problem with hosting company, so I had to move all 130 websites in 12 hours without ssh access in both old/new server. (can you imagine?) New server admin helped me, but their response were so late, so I want to do it my self. Also, I need one more server that can immediately be switched if hosting company blowup everything. (hosting will be my life line)
2. Disk space ========================= All 130 websites are smaill size cloned websites (1mb~20mb) because I sell cloned websites with hosting. I have unmetered space/bandwidth reseller plan now, so I can provide 5bg-10gb space for each customer. (they use only 1-20mb though) If I have vps(15-30GB plan), I won't have enough space if, some clients really use 5GB space. So I may move clients who use big space to my unmetered shared reseller account.(currently have one) In other words, vps- many small sized websites unmetered - big sized websites (a few)
I may need only one vps, but it's too much overselling if I give 5GB to each client. (that's why I have to connect vps to my current hosting). Am I wrong?
I have no idea how to make this concept works.
I see many ebay sellers who sell unmetered hosting, and they have 2-5 datacenters and backup servers....etc.
Also, how can people generage a bunch of ips? Is it one of the function in vps?
Last question- Does it back up all sub-account if I do full backup reseller's cpanel?
what kind of incoming and outgoing bandwidth should i be able to consume from FDC?
Im getting about 60KB down and 500KB up.
further since i havent been able to hold the number of radio slots I used to I feel like something is not right, i seem to get normal ping and traceroute but noticed that an mtr router displays some sort of odd results, am I reading this correctly?
seems like there is always a couple of hosts with a ton of packet loss. how can i tell if there is some kind of problem here? the server worked great for 6 mos and now it just seems like it never has come back .......
I've currently got around 10 dedicated servers for the MMORPG we run, 3 of which act as patch distribution servers / download servers.
The patch distribution servers are fairly low spec (Single CPU, 1-2GB RAM, 250GB HDD), but connect through a 100MB unmetered port - all of these are currently in the EU.
I'm now looking at a USA patch server, but not sure where to look. The only provider that springs to mind is FDC Servers but not sure how good they are these days. I don't mind if the provider is on the East or West coast (or even Central), but they must provide 100MBps unmetered (shared is fine).
Currently paying around $100-$200 for each other patch server, so would ask that $200-250 is the limit.
Someone mentioned corenetworks.net in one of the posts, so I went to look at them, then checking out the options, it got me thinking about this, what is the difference/what does it mean?
Unmetered Bandwidth Options vs. Metered Bandwidth Options?
Unmetered 3Mbps/month +$0.00
Metered 1,000GB/month +$0.00
So, are they saying that I can get 3Mbps 24/7 for an entire month for no extra, or 1,000GB total transer at? Mbps (I would assume 10Mbps or 100Mbps depending on the setting.)?
Ok, so I am trying to answer my own question...
Let me just ask it. What's the difference?
They have an Unmetered @ 10Mbps for $350.00/month, but come on... Is it "really" unmetered? (Just like those shared "unlimited transfer" type accounts, where they hack you off at the knees when you go past their invisible "unlimited" number.
What is the diference between metered and unmetered bandwidth. I was looking a one provider that I will not name and they have 1Mbps metered for $109 and then they offer 10Mbps unmetered for $139. To me unmetered sounds like a better deal. Is there something that I am not knowing or seeing between the two?
I have a lot of questions here so if you can't answer them all I understand. even pointing me somewhere where I could get the answers would be appreciated; hardware sites focusing on server hardware, forums focusing on such, etc.
we plan to have three different types of servers:
- db server (self explanatory. mysql. for forums, mysql driven sites.)
- file server (lots of files around ~2-10MB, consistant 70mbps right now, but we want more room for upgrades. needs a LOT of storage room.)
- web server (lots of php files, but also static things like plain html, images, etc. also includes all misc services for the setup-- dns, etc.)
could I be given a rundown for which hardware each of the three should have? I don't need specifics, even just knowing that more ram is important here while cpu doesn't matter as much, or that the fastest disks available are a must, etc would all be valuable info for me. despite that, I certainly wouldn't mind specific hypothetical hardware configs.
for the database server I'm assuming the more ram the better. not entirely sure about the cpu? also not positive on disks...
for the fileserver, how much ram would be practical or useful? disk io will be an issue I'm because plenty of people will be pulling files at once so the disk needs to read from multiple places. scsi (and even raptors) are not an option as we need 750GB+ of space on a reasonable budget. more ram will take some load of of the disks, but how much is neccessary / reasonable?
for the web server I'm assuming cpu first, then ram, but it'll likely need less ram than the db server?
I'm more lost on the disks than anything. scsi on the fileserver is not an option under any circumstances due to $/GB. for the db & web server I'm willing to pay for scsi if the performance increase really does warrant the extra money, but I'd like to be convinced before shelling it out. if you have benchmarks geared at server hardware when it comes to disks I'd really appreciate it.
also, what's the best way to network these together when colocated? each one with a dual gigabit ethernet port and then the communications go to and from the router?
I got a question about shared unmetered bandwidth offerings. Currently we specialise in Dedicated Unmetered bandwidth offers but also offer metered.
we see an increase in demand for shared unmetered, with some minor guarantees of troughput. Much in the style of FDC servers. We are toying with the idea, to add a shared unmetered service thats overbooked 1/4 (100 mbit) or 1/6 (gigabit).
1. Are these overbooking rates reasonable? it looks like other companies roughly have these overbooking factors.
2. What kind of hardware should be bundle with such an offer? obviously its the bargain hunter category (no pun intended) that we would try to appeal to. Would that mean generally lower end servers like ATOMs?
I'm currently doing close to a 25,000 daily unique average on my site and coming close to 12TB or monthly bandwidth transfer. With most DS Hosting services, I would usually be offered virtual rack solutions with multiple machines that would help raise my monthly limit but it would be greatly cost effective if I just stuck with one powerful server that offers unmetered bandwidth at a great price.
