I am thinking to moving to a ultra cheap dedicated server and was wondering roughly how many users this box could rougly hold if users averaged 1/2 post a day:
256 Meg Ram
40 Gig hard drive
500 GB of transfer.
This is a brand new site so I am not expecting 1m users to sign up ... and I don't mind upgrading in the future if I need it (I am going month to month).
I was doing some more searching and $10 more a month got me 512mb of ram with a 1.4 ghz Celeron.
Just fyi my max budget right now is $60/month until I get some paid users... So if you know anything better for less let me know! That server I found above was from ipowerweb.com and is $49 / month.
