SoundNERD,

1GB storage is not enough. Our database on it's own is 1GB and it continues to grow rapidly so we need far more than that to allow for growth and also the rest of the site which probably requires 100MB.

li_gangyi,

we've spent the last 4 yrs sitting on the back of fibre pipes (oh what a pleasure) but yes we could get by (pretty easily during peaks) on a 10Mbps ethernet line assuming there is not much other traffic on that same feed. The rest of the time, 10Mbps would be a breeze.

2 things.. anyone that posts server stats could they please include the following ...

CPU
RAM
HDD
OS
MYSQL and PHP support
Bandwidth
Monthly Traffic allowance

li_gangyi,
What bandwidth are you talking when you say 'bad'?

If worst comes to worst, we may have to limit the number of ppl that come to the board at any one time. However, I would sooner see us go to paid hosting than see that happen.

Both the RAM and connection would never handle it but thanks for the offer.

Okay, my 1.5Mbps SDSL wouldn't be up to the heavy lifting of your peak throughput it appears. Too bad, I can dedicate an SMP/RAID box to it.

Anyway, I'll throw in one more datapoint, and that's the local hosting service I use, Speakeasy. I pay $120/month for:

Hosting on redundant Linux cluster
CPU/RAM unknown
2GB quota + $5/50MB over quota, on NetApp SAN
Linux 2.4
Mysql 3
PHP 4.3
Twin OC3 to major backbones, unlimited transfer

What about building a box (shouldn't cost too much at all) and trying to find someone willing enough to plug it into their network? Sometimes that's a lot more feasible if someone doesn't want their resources chewed up by one single site (cpu usage/db usage/hd space)

Its basically finding someone to co-host the box for free.
