Being a non-expert, I can tell you what we did in our scolar counsil for
We currently have one machine which is a PIII800 with 35 vservers on it.
They all have private IP, one has a public IP and does proxy-pass for
the others which releaves us the need for that much public ip's...
We have one of those vservers which does https (proxy pass for the
others), and the other one are all for school web hosting, each school
can have its own world for its web site with php/mysql and more.
This machine gets about 1 500 000 hits a week, and 22 of the 35 vservers
are in fact really used (the others are on but are not visited yet). The
machine is running good, no performance problem.
