Hi

I need to get a windows 2003 license for a dedicated server to host a website. I dont understand what type of license i need. I don't understand how CAL's apply to website.

I've seen quite a few for sale on ebay but i';m nervous about buying from there. I want to make sure i have the right thing and not some dodgy trial license or something

Thanks a lot for your help

for web servers, the CALs are not necessary, the IIS service uses anonymous connections. CALs are neccessary for internal connections though.

As for the version, you should get 2003 Web Edition, since it is designed for web services. It cannot be a DC, for security reasons.

Good luck,

one server per server license, multiple web sites, or pages per web server, since web sites and pages are just HDD space and RAM.

If you try to host too many, you will start to see a performance decrease, depending on activity.

Good Luck,
