Web server help please...

Hi,

I have many URL's and websites hosted with different ISP's and I would like to have my own server at my place so I can host my own websites and manage it. What is the best way to achive this and will ISDN be ok to use for it? (DSL/Cable is not availabe in the area)

Thanks

ISDN generally isnt gonna cut it for a web server. At the very least i would recommend Cable (if not dsl) and to really do it right you would want to pull in a T1 line. Very expensive. To top it off many service providers, especially DSL and Cable providers, put "no server use" in their user agreements which means you cannot run a server on their lines. Even if you could get enough bandwidth and a provider without a server clause you still have to transfer all the domain names to your IP which is a drag. I'd stick with what youve got.

As an aternitive there are Many Hosting Companies offer a reseller package where you will get up to %50 on each.  Some allow you to do your own billing where you can charge what you want.  This is a good stepping stone to generate income and experance to come up with enough to run your own.  One such company is hostcentric.com

Have you considered co-hosting? Most ISPs will allow you to co-host a server at their site. (Co-hosting means you buy the server, software, etc, etc and the ISP allows you to put that server in their office and use their bandwidth).

Then by installing software like PCanywhere (or other remote mangagement software) you can pull up your server just by typing in the IP address. This is a much better option than trying to run a server off an ISDN line. Typically a co-hosting solution costs around $250 a month, which is more expensive than ISDN, cable, or DSL, but much less expensive than a T1 line.

serversure.co.uk will host a server on their lines for you, and either manage it for you, or leave it up to you.
