    If you pick an unlimited domain license you're pretty much limited at that point by your hardware and how many sites IIS 6.0 will support by default, which I believe is up in the thousands.

    With your hardware I would say 60 to 90 domains max. I'm running a dual opterons with 2GB of RAM for a target of 300 domains per server and I'm considering upping the RAM to 4GB before it's all said and done.

    It depends the sites you host.. If you host low traffic corporate sites I think it can easily serve 500-600... If you feel uncomfortable you'll add some ram later.. But I never recommend on any server over 500 sites whether its a P4 or dual xeon...

    I'd say 100.

    Unless they are heavy traffic sites and/or heavy storage sites.

    You really can't tell until you start filling up the server. Don't try to set some superficial limit that you can't maintain or underutilizes your server.

    When you notice a degredation in performance and/or service, it's time to look into another server. To start filling in the new server, you'll probably want to move several customers from the old server to load balance.
