dedicated hosting qustion
ping & host

 9:15 am on Jan 28, 2003 (gmt 0)

I dont seem to be able to make sense about the hosting provider. I tried to ping their big clients site & all packets was lost . While I know it's well trafficked site & have subscribed to their 2MB line, the site still loads. I know that the ISP cache the site, but how do I actually determine if this host is dependable or not - so 128 KPS will support around 35GB transfer?

You can try by using a proxy (There is thousands of free proxys out there)

Does the host have a 2Mb line? Today that isn't very much for most hosting companies.
Unless you think you will have very little traffic (Below 3gb/month as you say) it might be fine, as long as it doesn't host a lot of other clients which uses more bandwidth that you do.

thanks, tried the proxy method the site also does load, but only the ping method fails everytime.
On this note of the bandwidth, & hosting I wouldn't know if P4 2G, & 1 G Ram with 80GB IDE would be sufficient to support a virtual hosting for our current list of clients of around 80 sites. My boss suggested that we get our own dedicated host & I have no technicalities in determining the load. Any insights?

They probably have the firewall filtering and dropping pings
