Looking for a great web server

We are looking for a server for hosing our e-commerce site. The previous one we used had stability issue and now we are looking for a brand one. Does anyone have any good suggestion on that? The budget is within $5,000 dollars. Operating system is Windows NT backoffice(<10 users). The connection is DSL.

Something like Dell PowerEdge 2300 is a good choice for us but I am not sure about its performance.

I would recommend looking at the IBM NetFinity range, they are very compatible with the Microsoft software you are looking at.

as a side note:  Linux is also supported by IBM on the netfinity range as well.

Use linux and apache. You will save lot of money and it is much faster than Windows NT.

You just need a web server. So you won^t do anythink else on this PC. You can use linux in a NT-net without any problems.

Sorry, I don't get you.

We need IIS in order to run asp programs, right? Besides, we also need MS SQL or MS access for database management. What do you mean by using Linux in a NT-net?

You can use ChiliASP! to run ASP on the Netscape servers (http://www.chilisoft.com)

I, personally, are partial to Compaq servers. :-)  We had a few ALRs (before Gateway bought them) and they're just "okay". Compaq, on the other hand, has yet to fail us (only NT problems).

Thanx, Chang.

Do you know how much it costs to have a netscape server? Since IIS is free, I hope the netscape server won't be too expensive.
