There is a Dutch ISP service called "24 Hours Net" which is a free ISP (in
Europe local phone calls are time charged and the ISP receives a portion of
the phone call costs which covers all costs of running the ISP). It is aimed
at business customers and gives each customer 1 free .nl domain. It is all
based around the Netscape mail, web, and SMTP servers. It supports web based
administration etc and works reasonably well.
My personal estimation is that the current setup is likely to experience
performance problems when it exceeds 10,000 domains, and will certainly have
problems with 30,000 domains. But there is plenty of time to upgrade and/or
reconfigure before then.
I believe that the entire range of software employed on 24hoursnet servers is
available for Linux.
