|FAQ: What kind of servers Sanders Hosting has?
A webhost's server is something very important which you should consider before signing up with any webhost.
Before we started Sanders Hosting, we relied on other webhosting services for our web sites. Unfortunately, we outgrew their capabilities and they couldn't provide us with the performance we needed (and this created a lot of headaches). Plus, service and dependability everywhere we went to were just bad. Most web hosts never kept their promises.

So, as you can see, we've been in your position. We were looking for a webhost just like you are now. We know what you need, and what you expect from a webhost. Because of this, we always have the most powerful servers we can build, the best technical support possible and high quality connectivity.
We'll give you an example on the kind of power you will need:
We host a website that receives 22,000 visitors per day.
The FTP server software for that site handles 50,000 file
downloads PER DAY. There is an adserver application, message
board and a dozen more CGIs running. It's previous server
was a Pentium 200MMX, with 512MB of RAM and 8GB hard drive,
and THAT was enough (although not super fast). So you can
see, the following servers are MORE than enough for any
site like that and can easily handle at least 20 hi-power
websites like the one we just described, or over 1,000 low
power websites (average of 100-300 visits a day).
on our web hosting servers:
Pentium 4 CPUs, from 2 to 3Ghz
(1,024-2,048MBs) of 333Mhz DDR memory
disk arrays from 100GBs to 180GBs
web server software: the Internet web server standard
overloaded with more web sites than it can handle
without slowing down. Guaranteed!
operating system highly modified for performance
4 CPU, 2.4Ghz
