I'll be completely honest, that's nowhere near fast enough for a server - your site's kind of slow loading as it is, it'll be terrible if several people are using it at once.

I'm not sure about getting a leased line...but it would almost certainly be easier to just rent a dedicated server

and cheaper, I would think Smile (I guess if you live in a very dense business area it might not be, but I doubt you do)

Regarding your age: the problem is that any contract you enter into is not legally binding because you're under 18. Also I take it you go to school - if so, what do you do if the server goes down when you're at school? What happens if you have a hardware crash - you've got no hardware to replace (and no cash to replace it with)? What happens if your internet connection goes down?

These are but a few of the questions which you're going to have trouble with...

[Never mind the fact that getting hosting clients is certainly far from easy, with the hosting market saturated as it is right now.]

How can I tell you why it's saturated? Smile My guess is simply that working in the hosting industry is nice because you get to choose your hours and work from home Smile.

As to your price: I think you're offering way too much space for quite a high price. There aren't many people who need that much space.

The site is on PlusNet server.


I would never host anything on plusnet, a company that had their CGI/PHP server listed as red on the service status for 45 days because it was unreliable says it all.

It may be back up, but in the 45 days it was down they didn't seem to have a clue of what they were doing in order to fix it, and any reputable host should always make sure that their site is hosted on a reliable and fast connection, it creates a good first impression to your prospective customers.

I tried running a few sites at home on a computer a few years ago (Got a dedicated server right now).

It was on a 512k connection, it ran OK for a while but then I let a few other people run their forums off my connection and it felt like I was on a 56k connection again.

Oh, desktop computers aren't really designed for hosting...I won't go into the advanced server terminology here as you probably won't understand a lot of it..BTW if you're running this 'server' on your home PC I would just give up now Wink.

And 7.99? To be honest your max price will probably be 0, simply because you are not providing 'proper' hosting services (i.e a home broadband connection, no Cpanel, Windows XP(?)). Oh, and you are possibly breaking your ISPs AUP (Depends on the ISP).
