    I looked as well as possible but could not find any reccomendations for the number of sites hosted to be limited to. How many can this server type handle? Or would be reccomended not to push past?

    If you place extra 500MB RAM then u can manage more than 500 small sites with 80-90% static pages....

    Go on, have a guess
    Yup, it entirely depends on what the clients are doing. Such a server could be overwhelmed by a single client, or could host a couple of hundred low impact static sites. The only way to tell is when performance is affected, you'll need a new server or upgrade.

    Excellent thank you.

    Most of the accounts on the server would be considered low resource intensive sites. A handful however have the possibility to explode so i'll keep an eye on the load as I'm incrementing the accounts.

    thanks for the responses.
