Starting a shared webhosting service
Posted on 2010-08-23
I am planning to start a shared web hosting service like "hostgator, fatcow, site5 etc..." in linux environment
Please guide me how it can be done?
and answer few questions which i have:-
1) What should be the server configurations?
2) How many servers should i start with?
3) Is there any use of having independent servers for database, hosting, webmail etc...?
4) How many users should i host per server?
5) Which are the available applications in market for client billling & hosting?
6) Is there any workforce which i should be hiring? ex:- server admin, support etc...
7) Assume that i have a server which is full to its capacity, now whats the procedure of adding another server?
* Will it be a complete new server?
* Would i have to install all the application from scratch?
* or the new server will be attached to the existing server?
