    HOSTING

    well at the minute im using a free host ultra account, got Unlimited space and bandwidth e.t.c. and a rubbish .tk domain...

    I'm looking for about maybe 200 - 500mb space, over 5GB of bandwidth, most probably windows system but linux is also an option and I definetly need a new domain.

    I've never used Dreamhost, but they're price plans just don't seem to add up to me.

    4800 MB storage, 120 GB bandwidth, unlimited domains, unlimited MySQL for $7.95 a month! There's some serious overselling going on there I think. If too many clients start filling their allocation, it won't be long before the servers are at straining point.

    lol it's definetly a good price but if they going to offer a service like that then they should have the hardware to cope with it dont you think?

    I've been with them for a few months and never had problems.

    Besides, how many sites do you know fill up 4+GB?

    I'm sure they have got a reasonable level of service. I can't tell because I've never used them.

    Unfortunately hosts that offer that much space sometimes get slammed by download, music, and porn sites.

    I believe you shouldn't offer space that you can't guarentee to deliver. I doubt very much it is 4GB per account. If more likely far less than that in reality.

    Take a typical disk drive of 120GB now chop that up into 4GB slots = just 30 accounts! Hardly viable I think at $7.99 a month per account. Even if they used a 240GB drive that's only 60 accounts.

    More likely they have a few hundred at least per drive so lets take 120GB divided by 300 accounts = 400MB per account more likely.

    Overselling takes into account that not everyone will use up their full allocation, but if just a few do so it puts the server in trouble!

    Great for hobby/personal sites, but not somewhere I'd put a paying clients site.

    I take your point and I know what you're talking about. But as I said, I haven't had any troubles yet, and I am not even close to their multi-GB limit.

    Given this, I can't comment about how they cope under heavy load, but I will say I've yet to hear anything remotely "bad" about them...
