    Can you split sites on a Dedicated Server??

    As you can tell I'm a shared hosting junkie. My host finally sent me an email saying my site is too processor intensive to keep in a shared hosting environment. So, I'm moving up to a dedicated server.

    I just realized, i know nothing about dedicated packages.

    I have have 3 high traffic sites, all on separate shared hosting packages pushing 25 GB of data transfer monthly currently. I was wondering if I could put all 3 on the same dedicated server even though they are different domain names?

    Thanks For The Help!

    Yes, that's no problem.
    But probably a managed server would be best for you...

    Do each one of your sites each reach 25GB or do all three total 25Gb bandwidth? As Walter has already mentioned, yes, you can host seperate accounts on a dedicated server. (and many more)

    Regarding the bandwidth, if you total 25GB per month, it may be cheaper for you to purchase a resellers type account as these usually have high transfer limits.

    What are you paying right now for all 3? You can grab a RackShack server (we have one with them and are very happy) for just under 100$/month.

    You could then sell the rest of your space to friends/colleagues to offset the cost. It would probably end up being cheaper in the long run

    The answer to your question is a solid "yes"
