    webhosting question


    Hello everyone once again,

    I am working at purchasing dedicated server from http://1and1.com and planning on using it for TeamSpeak servers and starting webhosting company. I am so far pretty untrained in this stuff, but know enough Linux to get around.

    I just have a few questions. If anyone can answer any of them, that would be awesome.

    1. Has anyone tried Plesk7 on RHL9? If so, what do you think of it?
    2. Is 40GB IDE, 512MB RAM, P4 @ 2.4GHz, and 500GB good enough for a starting webhost?
    3. Is there any certain business licensing required to start a webhost?
    4. What is best way to recive funds? PayPal?
    5. Any suggestions on how to figure out plan pricing or is it wise to just 'wing it'?

    Thank you in advance!

    The connection is not a problem. I host on their shared hosting now and is like esy 300-400kb/s downloads, and good upload speed on FTP.

    Disks, I'm guessing are only are 7200RPM Is this really bad? I would prefer a 10,000RPM SCSI, but you can't get everything you wish for

    EDIT:

    would also be good to know if they are set up in a raid configuration and what configuration it is. and how many drives is the 500GB across?
