- what kind of real life performance have you gotten using tummy virutal?
- do pages load quickly (are they responsive) and are your sites either
processor/db or photo (bandwith) intensive?
- any idea about object bandwith figures?
- how do you handle mail/dns (on the same box or do they have other
services you must contract out)?
- i guess the only limit on the number of domains you can run on the vps
is based on hw/bandwith/performance requirements - correct?

All very good points!  Makes you wanna forget this option completely.

thanks much for the input
