    It does support

    Plesk supports unlimited domains

    If you buy a license ;)

    If you want or need Optimal Performance then you need is the following specs:

    Xeon Processor or AMD Opteron cpu and stay from slow cpus like AMD 1400 lol

    1Gb or more Memory DDR2

    Intel NicCard

    80Gb or more hard disk brand Seagate not crappy disk like Maxtor

    100Mbps connection

    Os Linux with cPanel

    Thats all.

    Add ons

    Firewall is needed for security open ports can cause attacks on server.

    Anti Virus for cleaning viruses

    Spybot to clear Spyware

    web, mail and small databases

    i want to use an external SQL Server , so databases willnot be used with this server

    so, i expect to be able to host about 600 sites using a dual xeon 2,8 with SCSI 73 GB

    It depends of domains content.
    We have one server on Plesk 7.5.6 with 2250 domains.
    But it has dual Xeon 3.2 and 8GB fo memory.
    As for disks it is better to use raid 10.

    We use the following configuration:

    Intel DualCore 2.8Gb
    2GB RAM
    2x120GB Raid1
    Intel Network Adapter
    about 500 domains.

    We use the following software:

    Windows server 2003 Standard/Enterprise with sp1
    IIS 6.0
    FrontPage Extensions
    ASP 1.1/2.0
    ColdFusion MX 7.0.1 Enterprise (a real resouce ******)
    and an external MSSQL 2000 server

    If you're not using ColdFusion you should be eable to set up 1000 domains on your box easy!
