madihrb, I am working in software House, having one dedicated in USA giving online services to 15 clients. I have given them same idea to host server locally but after evulation I come out with unreliable and un-affordable results.
Results are follow:-(remember I am talking about one server).
Startup cost 5,80,000 (Generator(Auto start)=3,50,000, AC = 25000, UPS= 30,000, Server = 150000, DSL = 25,000
Above price is average based and minimum.
Secondly in Pakistan DSL didn't provide any help in regards of Hosting of server and most of ISP don't have setup to allow multiples sites
Third our Energy prices are very high and unstable in regard to run setup in Pakistan.
Fourthly Monthly expenses can't be less then 45,000
and last there is so much technical issues are needed to deal with to run it smoothly.
My dear it is only possible if you want to open data center here in Pakistan and have lot of money to invest like an entrepreneur.
