Hey,

We have 400 websites on our windows 2003 web server, we need to determine if we need a new website or an updrage.
How should we go about determining if we need another web server?

How many daily visits should a web server handle?

Dont think that daily visits is the best thing to base your decision on for this question.
I would be running performance monitor on the Server to see how utilised it is? Is it running Low on RAM CPU or Storage space. Unless one of these things is causing an issue why bother?

Proper benchmarking is the best way to work out future growth. If you are planning to implement another 400 websites in the next X amount of months and your current server in 75 percent utilised, then obviously you will need a new server.

Hope this Helps
