how many ips on a server?
Posted on 2004-07-30
I'm not certain which sub category I should pose this question in. I work mostly in html, but one of my clients would like to purchase a large number of domains. The fees for hosting different domains, even on a dedicated server, each with a different IP number are a lot per month. He is considering purchasing his own server. Probably it would be linux or unix, although I can't say for sure. The general question here is, assuming the sites are each only one or two pages in or alternatively perhaps some might be three, but could be dynamic with a database, how many such sites can fit on a typical server, and if this is a hard drive issue, I can be more specific. How large a hard drive, and how fast a processor would it take to run 1000 different domains with different IP numbers, (or is this not even possible) some of which might be dynamic. How about if none were dynamic?
