Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Hosting - yet again.

Posted by Patrick Giagnocavo on
I don't know where the "$30 or $300" conundrum comes from. (disclaimer:  my company, Zill.Net, does both shared server and managed server hosting of OpenACS, at $79.95 and $175 per month respectively).

I have customers with decent ecommerce setups, nonprofits that get lots of  hits and do bulkmail, and other commercial sites all running OpenACS - none of which go over 10GB of traffic in a month.

The only site I ever had that got close to 10GB was one that got slashdotted, and had a 1MB file for downloading as its main attraction.

If they already have a site, the question is, how much traffic do they get now?  It is unlikely that an OpenACS site, even with forums, email sending, etc. would double their current traffic.
