    I was just curious, I am sizing my VPS to run cpanel and I was curious how many "typical" users I could support with 8GB of RAM and 127GB of Hard Disk? Is there any type of sizing chart for a mix of sites such as blogs, forums etc. I just want an estimate.

    I also want to connect my NAS to increase my capacity, I assume I just need to mount the drive and cpanel want know any better where the drive is local or networked?

    Thanks

    It is hard to answer. It depend on website activity, your web server and etc.

    Indeed, very hard to answer. You'll get an idea after 10-20 users.

    10-20 users is still not bad for a start. I saw another user's post and a reseller's account is the only way to determine the limits?

    Those limits you speak of are for that Resellers account. Limits setup by root/System Administrator.

    A typical user with a small account, a static HTML website and a couple email accounts? Hundreds of accounts, possibly.
