    I'd say this thread would look good in the safety valve, and the tag under this guy's name would look better if it listed him as being on a LONG vacation, considering his attitude here, and in THIS THREAD...

    Back to the original topic...

    observent: If you are willing to spend THAT much, why would you even want to run it from home? Many companies on the Internet will host dedicated servers for you. Saves you much time, and trouble of installing cpanel/php/mysql/apache/security patches/updates/hardware... etc...

    Here is generally what you would be looking at:

    Dedicated Server Package
    Pentium IV 3.0 GHz (HT)
    1024 DDR RAM
    120 GB Hard Drive
    3,000 GB of Bandwidth
    Free IP Allocations
    100 Mbps Uplink
    24x7 Phone Reboots
    O/S : Some sort of Linux
    $110.00 - $140.00 /month


    --------------------------------------------

    Pentium IV 3.0 GHz (HT)
    2048 DDR RAM
    2x 120 GB Hard Drive
    10 Mbps Unmetered
    Free IP Allocations
    100 Mbps Uplink
    APC Reboot Port Included
    24x7 Phone Reboots
    O/S : Some sort of Linux
    $200.00 - $240.00 /month


    Most providers you can customize your servers too (for fee), meaning you could put Windows 2003 Enterprise and get 4GB DDR, and a larger HD if you wanted.

    If that's a little extreme for your needs (most likely) then a basic hosting package would be fine. You can find those all over in all variety's, but generally speaking...

    500MB Disk/10GB Bandwidth = $10.00/month
    1000MB Disk/25GB Bandwidth = $15.00/month
    2000MB Disk/100GB Bandwidth = $35.00/month

    Generally all hosting comes with cpanel, php, mysql, scripts, all that jazz all setup for you.

    Hope this helps!

    I missed this post! I didn't know you already had the nice hardware.

    In that case, I agree with janrocks. Get a flipping T1 or something. If your ISP has a problem with you running a web server than YOU DO NOT HAVE A GOOD ENOUGH CONNECTION TO SERVE A LARGE WEBSITE.

    This site is great because of how well moderated it is, by members and mods alike. If there were 1,000 script kiddies like you running around calling people they don't even know "fat" and abusing the rules of the forum, then knowledgeable people would not keep up with this site.

    As for the Torrent invite... you don't even HAVE to read the rules. At the top of that forum there is a sticky: "TORRENT INVITE TRADING IS NOT ALLOWED! ASK AND YOU WILL BE BANNED!!!"
