View Full Version : Hosting multiple sites

01-31-2003, 08:11 PM
I currently am running 6 sites but they are beign hosted by different companies. Each site does roughly 10 gigs of traffic a month. I want to take the sites in house and host them at my office to save money and also not have to worry about the transfer limitations of a hosting provider. Does anyone have a similiar setup they are running. I need to know things like speed of connection, # of servers etc. Any help would be appreciated.

Well, datacenters exist because they have superior connections than we can have at home. Never-the-less, search the web for self-hosting. Just make sure you have the fastest connection possible before you start. :D

For connection speed... you'll definetly want frame-relay... so DS3 most likely. And what some companies that offer DS3 do, is that instead of paying for the entire 45mbps... you can buy only like 5 or 10 and increase it as your demands go up.

But that stuff isn't cheap either.
