    Just because you have a lot of sites, that doesn't mean that you need to have a dedicated IP for each site, as you can run on a shared IP, and it really won't make a difference. The only reason why you need a dedicated IP, is if all your sites need an SSL certificate to be installed on them.

    I can deal without the large hard drives and I need to get one of these servers so that is not the question. I just don't know about the relative performance between the AMD and the Intel one.

    Could the AMD have bigger hard disks put on it.

    If not;

    then i dont think either of those deals suit you. You need a mix of both of them. One of them is good for one thing and the other one is good for another.

    Find out about the hard disk upgrade amd and keep shopping around.

    My 2p.

    possibly. I would almost certainly use one drive to backup the other.

    I want to be able to offer large reseller accounts. I also want to host a sci-fi image gallery on there which will probably be about 5GB of images. so the extra space would be nice.

    Depends?

    Do you see yourself using up 40gb of hard disk space.

    I want to get these and still not sure what to go for. it is between the:

    AMD Duron 1GHZ with 1GB ram and 2 x 20GB hard drives

    v

    PIII Intel 1GHZ with 512MB ram and 2 x 40GB hard drives.

    If it wastn't for the difference in hard drives i would go for the Athlon as I think 512MB ram makes far more difference than the difference in processor. The size of the hard drives makes me lean more towards the PIII though.

    Thoughts?

    I phoned them 3 times regarding different questions, all were answered quite well. They don't act like snobs like some companies.

    i doubt it you will be able to negotiate a cheaper setup fee since they need to cover the cost of the actual server somehow

    personally i'd still choose Intel even though the motherboard maxes out at 512mb versus Duron

    but then again i won't choose either until they have dual cpu setups with > 512mb ram

    i'd wait too since tech support isn't up to scratch for white boxes yet

    Go for the AMD box, it can go up to 1 gig total ram. As I remember the Intel boxes top out at 512mb ram...

    Yeap - but not with this host.

    I dont think you will get a big discount or they may not even reply. Try and email them though.
