# of sites on one server
« on: June 01, 2004, 04:43:53 PM »
How many sites are shared per server?

I am currently using a free hosting service and I think they have overloaded their servers because I am constantly getting "cannot find server" errors or my site is very slow.  If I sign up with LP, I do not want the same thing to happen.

Thanks.   :D

We don't have a fixed or estimate range of numbers of sites per server. Each server is scored by hardware capability, and what functionality it offers and to what customers (regular, premium, enterprise account). Thus, each server is unique.

Correct me if i m wrong, but some people have dedicated IPs. Hence when doing a reverse look up, not all the sites would appear.


Actually, yes, you are wrong.  Take their IP and enter it in the following location:

http://centralops.net/co/

Click on "Domain Dossier" and then check "traceroute" and click the go button.  It will address trace back to the server not to their domain.  A few example dedicated IPs are:

216.193.211.117 (traces back to bella.lunarpages.com)
216.193.194.144 (traces back to leo.lunarpages.com)

If you aren't sure these are actual dedicated IPs, enter the IP address in a browser and see the results.  Even though tracing them independently won't list all the sites on the server, they are included in the listing of accounts on the server itself as part of that server's IP address pool.

Another issue is that each site under an account counts as a site on the server even though that site is sharing the same bandwidth, disk space, etc. of the account.  So, for example, a server could show 132 sites on it, but 1/3 of those people might have an addon or parked domain.  Those would count as sites as well, so you would show 132 sites on the server even though only 99 accounts were there.

That's great information - thanks.

But how will I know that if I sign up for LP, I won't just suffer the same fate as my other hosting service - slow site, cannot find server error, etc.?

Well, your last hosting site was free, so you shouldn't be surprised that you would get that kind of unreliability. You can't really compare it to a paid one like Lunar Pages. If LP was like your free hosting service, there would be a riot, since people expect more when they must pay. :D Of course, there are those occassional glitches, but that is the nature of computers. However, it's not because LP is overloading their systems. In fact, if there are customers who put too much strain on the servers, LP will address them so as not to impact other customers. :thumb:

Why not go through the forums and visit the personal sites of people who are hosted on lunarpages? That way you can see what to expect.
