    Just wondering why you didn&#39;t ask the person who was hosting your site to explain these things. They will obviously know.

    Oh and it&#39;s a nice site btw. I am downloading the games etc just now, I like those sorts of things - cheers.

    90 % of all hosters use linux distributions like Redhat Linux etc. About the server - it always depends what you need and how much visitors you expect.

    If you have for example 512 unique visitors online at once you need at least a 1.3 GHz machine (higher is strongly suggested) and 1 GB ram or more. (Else your webserver wil just crash down after 10 seconds

    About what a server can hold depends again on how much users you serve (online at once) plus what kind of sites you host.

    If you host people with a "normal" homepage then you can host more or less 100 sites on a server. If you use PHP / mySQL etc for forums or other things which consume a lot of resources then you can maybe host 2 sites on a server.

    Its generally hard to say "How much" people you can host.

    The most important thing is the server connection - meaning you need at least some MBit to be able to offer reliable hosting.

    I did see many things in my life (like people which think that they can host a server with their home cable / dsl) and believe me that doesn&#39;t work

    To see how people are connected you can simply traceroute them to learn more about their connection to the net. Maybe your host ipowerweb has some info his site which explains it better
