Need VPS quote for Media/Streaming e-shop


New Member
we need to make a fast decision (this week!) about the best VPS option for one of our clients.

we are setting up a small Magento run e-commerce site that will sell among other things, downloadable full-length movies and music. Most of our customers will be in UK, europe, and the middle east, and the client is a UK company, so preferably UK based host.

the films will be available to download with DRM (suggestions for a good DRM company welcome!) and/or to stream.

We think we will need about 100GB of storage and about 1500GB of bandwidth average and around 10000 hits per day when the site matures. (estimates based on 6000 visits per month, maybe 600 downloads a month and inventory of 70 films / 50 CDs) - again if you guys have a better estimate of our needs, please feel free to adjust!

1/ include media streaming / media server capabilities (such as quicktime or flash or newton)?

2/ include libraries such as ioncube, zend, or even FFMPEG etc for transcoding?

3/ how can much RAM/CPU would such a site need?

4/ for comparison, how much would a VPS with the following setup cost us:
50GB initially (first 3 months), then200 to 300 GB storage
1500 to 2000 GB transfer (does FTP and/or HTTP upload to server count toward transfer?)
1000 MB RAM (are the figures you quote dedicated or bursted?)
CPanel/WHM, and apache/php/mysql with the above libraries as minimum

5/ managed or semi-managed (would be great if you could explain the difference)

6/ any other useful info you can provide would be much welcome

many thanks in advance for your help!

PS will probably need something like cPanel, and your hourly rate for support!

thank you both, but the problem is we do not have the human+technical resources to admin/manage a dedicated server. anyway if that is inevitable, what would be your best quote for a service that will do the job?
