  • Your Website (and Host) roundup...

    Ok, I'm curious as to the webserver platform (and who hosts the server) that everyone is running. This has been brought up at various times under many different topics, but i'm again interested in this topic...

    Personally I have 6 Vserver Pro's ( vservers.com ) which house between 2 and 10 websites each. None of them are high traffic sites, but for what I spend each month on hosting I could get a very nice dedicated server.

    So, what's everyone else got ?

              Well, now I can say that I am a very happy customer of RackSpace. Finally moved 95% of the domains over to a new FreeBSD 4.x 800mhz 256MB Ram server and it is purring like a kitten.

                    That is part of the problem. I think the major problem is the Chip and it not being able to handle things properly.

                            yeah, that is what i thought ram would be ok. one question, are the sitepoint articles cached (ie static pages created) or are they all called from the database every time you access them? i guess you get heavy traffic on them and they never change.. but sure you know that already....

                            i would think rackspace would want to give you a top notch free server for some advertising, dosen't make them look good when the server is too busy and they appear to be one of your large advertisers.

                              Our contract with Rackspace is complex and involves things such as daily tape backups, added bandwidth, no-cost bandwidth to designated IP's and other features.

                              Lately though, we haven't been experiencing the problem as much and both MySQL and PHP have been highly optimized. The only time we really have a problem now is at 1:00 a.m. when the MySQL server shutsdown and restarts for automatic backups of all the databases which are then FTPed to a server in Australia.

                              Our Articles are pseudo-dynamic and we use SQUID for caching. For example, the SitePoint.com index page is generated every hour (I believe), except for the Active Topics which is live and the number of the members online which is updated every 5 minutes. A page can be republished manually as well.
