What kind of server you have? $100/m server inclusive of all licensing costs (cpanel etc...) hosting 1000 sites with good performance?
The $100/mo is for colo. The discretionary fixed costs you are referring to can be covered by the 2k mentioned in post.

You should be able to get 1000 sites on a server easy. But you need to know more than to click on a control panel icon. I've done it on Windows servers

No one really answered mine, so I will ask another simple one I had never even heard of colocation until seeing on here, and that seems pretty awesome. Instead of server in my bedroom closet, I colocate one. I am guessing you mean more than one server though, correct? Otherwise you can just get dedicated server not colocate. I have been checking out some of the hosts on here for colocation as well, I am really digging it. Wow that sounds corny.

paradiseweb - safest way is to follow natural progression reseller - vps - dedicated - colocation. Once you feel you have outgrown current platform and business might stall move to next. Jumping right on colocated equipment might quickly add many problems and unnecessary increase cost. Never put production server anywhere else than datacenter. You can colocate single server but it must work out cheaper (including spare HDD, stick of RAM) over 3 years than rented one to make sense.

The primary difference between co-location and dedicated server is ownership and responsibility of the hardware. With a dedicated server you are renting someone else's hardware and would be a little more expensive than colocation where you can own the server on your own terms. The more servers you have the more economic colo becomes

Colocation will require more server managment savvy than a dedicated server

For co-location do you buy server through them? Ship yours? I thought with colo they still basically sold you the server and then kept it onsite.

You don't have to buy a server from a datacenter when doing colocation (though I guess with some it may be an option).

@Collabora - 1k sites on a single server is quite a lot. While I am sure possible I wouldn't ever let a single server get to that limit, just imaging the potential problems.

Most providers buy servers parts from newegg or sometimes ebay for used parts. And then talk to guys over the data center for the type of rack and bandwidth you require and is able to pay. You then ship the parts over the data center and pay the monthly quoted fee. Depends on providers and your skills, you need to pay management fee for the server. If something goes wrong they will "manage" so to say. If you don't pay the management fee. You're on your own.

I thought 1k sounded high as well, if they each had just 2GB you would need 2TB RAID to handle it

You can buy the server from any store or vendor. Then you would ship the server (or vendor would deliver) to datacenter. I once had a rack at Hurricane Electric and used a local server builder near datacenter; they would deliver and rack the server. After i moved my servers to Los Angeles I was able to visit the datacenter (ISWest) myself and do the installing, etc

HG is located here in Austin, I wonder if they do colo. Is it usually more or less than dedicated server?

I believe HG themselves colo -- that is, they don't own the datacenter.

True, every host has to start somewhere and nothing better than to start with a reseller plan and then as business grows expand to a VPS and then Dedicated server
