I've been paying Yahoo $35 a month for their business Web hosting service. It has 50 email addresses at 2 gig's apiece and 2gb storage and a monthly transfer limit of 25gb.
What I want to do with the server is run some forums. Maybe a few personal webpage's or something(torrent tracking site??). I doubt bandwidth will be a big problem at first. My IP address has been the same for the last 8 months (actually since I had it installed).
Since I've been so lazy, I have been very slow in getting the pages up and running. I have 4 computers and am trying to figure out which to use as the server. I'll list them later and if anyone has suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated. I am pretty familiar with Windows 2003 Server. I think this is what I would like to start with since I'm familiar with it. In the future I would like to migrate to Linux.
Since I'm going to be purchasing the OS, which version should I get? Enterprise, Web edition, Data Center, or standard? Is it possible to have many domains running on the same server? Ex. www.AAAA.com, www.BBBB.com, www.CCCC.com
etc. so they would be on one computer running a Windows 2003 Server (version?). Is this possible? Any help is greatly appreciated!
