I am a long-time client of TCH and have always recommended its services to my web clients. You guys are great!
I've recently been hired by a private school, one who has pretty heavy web hosting needs. The school has one domain name. Their site is currently about 3GB (and growing), full of audio and video. They run a PHP rich site and offer podcasts to their students. Their monthly bandwidth ranges from 8-20GBs. Average around 750 sessions per day, some very short (as the school homepage is the default page on all the school's browsers) and other longer. Any thing else that would help you help me?
Questions for clarification
- Do you also see that the semi-dedicated package is the best TCH fit for the school OR do you see another package being a better fit?
- In getting the Semi-Dedicated Fully Managed Dual Intel P3 Server package, my assumption is that I cannot buy additional RAM... If that's the case, 512MB sounds a little sluggish - thoughts? If it turns out I CAN buy additional RAM, how much would you recommend?
- It sounds to me that the semi-dedicated package is essentially the same as tch's virtual web hosting other than space and bandwidth. Is that right? Or is the administration, say from a webmaster's point-of-view, much different?
- In the semi-dedicated package, do I have access to configuring the MX records? The school has its own internal mail server.
That's all I can think of right now. Thanks in advance for helping me clarify some of my outstanding questions. I look forward to getting the school's website up-and-running on the tch servers!
