    Probably why @ajones thought he would have a better time on WHT than LET.

  • I think it is more of the language barrier than anything else.

    Lol.... wait what? -> The simple answer for that person is ISPConfig 3 -> ispconfig.org/ispconfig-3/

  • Are you referring to the low cost of entry? Luckily, entry into the LEB market is actually quite expensive when compared to something like shared hosting. I mean, you can enter it for $50, but you'll get laughed away and be gone in a month.

  • @jarland - You're right we drop $2k on servers (minimum) a month if not more... Even when we were starting out we had bills of like $300 a month.

    Yeah, if you want to provide the minimum necessary to make people think you're worth trying, you need at minimum 4 drives and software RAID10. Of course hardware RAID is preferred, but we're talking bare minimum to put out numbers people want to see. I can't find a way in that door without spending less than say...$120/m, and even that takes creative shopping. Colo brings it down, but increases overhead at first anyway.

  • To be fair, some people do visit WHT and start posts like that who appear genuinely clueless and don't realise the shit coming for asking questions like that on a forum like that :)

    At least he is honest in his lack of knowledge, what is scarier at WHT are the ones that claim to know it all, hosts that will tell you their service is the best on offer with the most amazing support yet they get hit with a small DDoS and go all sheepish as they have no clue what to do.

    I love Laravel, Wable.com is good too.

  • @W1V_Lee said: At least he is honest in his lack of knowledge,

    He probably thought everyone who is providing hosting just know as much (or probably a little less) than he does :)

    Not until he gets back next week at least.

    I work for Nodisto.

  • @Zen said: Not until he gets back next week at least.

    Yes, we'll patiently wait and wait and wait...I guess none of the mods could do that?

    I think he wants to look at the code and I think only he has server access...

    I might be wrong I know the mods wont have access but @Liam might...

  • We spend $2k a month on colo alone... Our setup on our servers was well over $20k to date.

    HUH? This is the second post you have, in the same topic, about how much money you spend in colo, yes, we all know you guys are big :) But honestly, you don't need 2k to start, and I am sure when you started, you didn't invest 2k as well...most of people here probably started from resellers, which is like 20 a month
