Q. How does penny auction software hosting work?
A. Hosting is just as important to penny auction as the software.
Please read below the feedback of the penny auction crash, what we got by email from other (not our) penny auction software user:
“We opened our site [website name] for 5 days early September during that time we had 500 registered users and auctions with 100 people biding at the same time. So we have a good potential. Our problem is that the CPU load on the server is very high and the sever freezes and there is no real technical service form our partners. We have done a lot of testing using the apache benchmark tool and 40 concurrent requests take at the least 20 seconds to complete with the default caching mechanism which is not even close to being sufficient”.
Now, the question – who is guilty; is it the software or the server? From the description we can conclude the software was not optimized for high load, but also the server could be shared (virtual, cloud, etc.)
A trusted software provider together with a powerful fully (physically) dedicated server is required for a successful penny auction business.
