How much does a typical web hosting server cost
01-08-2017, 01:15 PM #2
You can get servers from $250 (used, old model) to $10,000.
What is the purpose of the server? (Shared, VPS node, dedicated server)
How many customers do you want the server to hold?
What kind of drives are you going to use, and what size array?
1 or 2 PSU's?
Etc, etc, etc.
There is no such thing a a 'typical server'.
Also, if colo'ing, will you need to provide your own switch, PDU, UPS, Firewall?
Don't forget to have spare parts for all of your hardware also.█ █ RDO Servers - Shared Hosting, Resellers, VPS, Dedicated Servers & Clusters

Understood RDO, and I knew I would get some answers like that, but what I'm trying to get an idea of then is what are the specs on a server you would buy.
Maybe give examples of the type you stated.
If it was only for shared hosting
For Reseller hosting accounts

Yes you maybe able to get an used server for very cheap and yes $250 USD seem to be the right price. One thing I always tell people when they buy an old computer or server. Always install a new hard drive. If anything going to break let it not be the hard-drive. Anything else can be broken and you will not lose data. However if you lose the hard-drive you will lose all your works, including the customers if you do have customers.
Co-location I seen, costs can range any where from $39.99 - $59.99 per months. This depend on which town you are located it. Check around with your local data center. They may have some deal for you. It may not be the best if you only colo one server. If you colo an entire 42U rack you will get the best out of it.
Beside that two cost when you colo a server, you may want to take in some variables costs for server monitoring and management, and hardware replacement costs, wear and tear.
