ISP Scaling -- Strategies for Hosting Thousands of Sites

Updated: August 22, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1

The ability for IIS to scale up to thousands of sites on one server depends on the type of content the site hosts and the number of application pools on the server. Your business model and service agreements with customers will also determine how many sites you can put on one server.

  • Shared static hosting

  • Shared static and dynamic hosting

  • Dedicated hosting
