Redteg has a dedicated server that he's using to host 175+ accounts, with the majority of them running WordPress. All fairly standard stuff. Lately (in the last 2 months) he's been dealing with large load spikes which are causing all of the sites to go down. He employs a server management company but they're currently unable to find the cause and a solution. This has resulted in him wondering if using a cloud setup would be a better option, or using a multiple server setup incase one crashes, and being able to switch to the other instance(s) that can pick up the load. Or would he be better off sticking with just one dedicated server? He's not wishing to manage this himself so would also like a recommendation on a tech support company that can help. He has a budget around $400 to $500 with a little flexibiity. His control panel of choice is DirectAdmin (He has no desire to return to cPanel). So, for those with simiiar setups or as providers of such systems, what are his options?
One of our newest members has a business which rents 2 different /24 IPv4 subnets and was also assigned some IPv4 from ARIN to help facilitate IPv6 deployment. All space is full or almost full. He'd like to spend more time with his family, and is considering selling his small IT business. What he'd like to know is if he can include the value of the ARIN assigned space in his business evaluation? The custom development, clients, and portfolio are worth enough but the value of these IPs can't be ignored. However, reading ARIN's guidelines doesn't make it clear if the IPs can be included in the sale or not. It's the entire business that's going up for sale, not just IPs, not just clients, not just hardware or anything. What are his options?
