    We're always trying to push the limits as far as we can. We have been testing this on our network for the past few months and have launched this new feature as a promotion. No catch actually, except that this is currently a special and management may decide to take it down again.

    Ask them how many accounts they stuff on one server...that's usually the easiest way to keep the costs down.

    Talking about number of sites on a server is such a general statement. Hosting performance doesn't have all that much to do with how many accounts a host "packs" on a server, but rather how load is being handled (see http://www.globat.com/network/ for more details). The true performance slammers are mail and database services, which we break out of the regular server environment and deliver separately (totally transparent to the users). A good web server with enough RAM and CPU power can handle thousands of html sites. We pack between 800 and 1,200 accounts on one servers, which is pretty standard for hosts of Globat's size and delivers with virtually no failures or performance decreases even during peak hours.

    sounds good..
    Scott, let me ask you this question.
    Lets say I bought this special package for 1 year and I hosted 10 individual websites,
    what happens after 1 year?
    If I want to renew do I get the same benefits..or...do I need to buy 10 different hosting plans?

    As long as you don't cancel this account you will have all the features that come with it, even if we wouldn't offer it anymore to the public.
