I thinking of starting my own hosting company and had a few question. First I wanted to know when you started did you purchase you server/servers or did you lease them from your data center. Do you still lease them or do you own your servers now.
How many accounts can I expect to get out of a typical server? Lets say a P-4 or Duel 2.8 Xeon with 1gig ram and 80+ gigs of space.
Thanks in advance.
p.s. this really needs to be in Dedicated & DataCenter Chat if someone could move

Hello Darsarin Welcome to WHC! I would recommend leasing your servers from a popular data center. How many accounts you can get out of a server is an arbitrary number only because it depends on how intensive those sites you host are.
PHP-based sites, dynamic web sites, forums, databases, etc. will utilize more of the server's resources causing you to put less domains on one server.
If you host mostly static HTML business web sites then you could easily fit 1,000 domains on a Dual Xeon. It all depends on many different variables.
If you planned to host forums and dynamic content then I suggest adding more RAM, atleast 2GB but preferably 3GB or more will allow you to add plenty of dynamic sites and forums.
Lease a Dual Xeon with 2GB RAM at a great data center and you'll be off to a great start.

Couldnt have said it better myself!
I think that all of the above info is 100%. Lease your servers and make sure there are not too many intense sites on the server (the figure Christina gave was accurate). My thoughts are that you should never compromise server performance just to save a little money.

It is always better to lease servers from a great data center with great support and everything. And it is a good thing not to over crowd the server as that would later be a problem for you and your business. I will move the post to the dedicated server section.
