How do I host my company off of a T1 line?
Posted on 2004-04-23
We have a website that receives over 90,000 hits/day (over 4,000 sessions served). The commerce solution we have chosen will charge $1300/month. (INSANE!)
We have a T1 with a static IP. Currently our server is W2k. We will need to use ASP and would also like to add streaming media (QT, WMV, etc). We have over 5,000 products to display. What is involved in setting oneself up to be a webserver? Is it relatively easy if you have a good general background?
I need software to communicate with the world (web server software)(recomendations?)
I need to change our IP address with my DNS (how?)
I need to purchase/configure a firewall (How? recomendations?)
I need to purchase and install streaming media servers (Easy or impossible?)
I need to shell out $ (roughly how much?)
