You ordered a machine without knowing about the technology you have ordered?

It is a bad idea to mix public (web site) and private services on the same machine. Not only from a security point of view but also performance. With the price of web hosting so low host your web site elsewhere. You will not be able to get enough bandwidth to make the site performance at an acceptable level anyway.

As you have purchased SBS, I would suggest the small business server topic area for questions.
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/SBS_Small_Business_Server/

It is more appropriate than this one, as while SBS contains Exchange, there are significant differences in how it is managed that mean that is a better place to ask questions.

You have purchased an excellent piece of hardware. With OS you have choosen you can do all the things you wrote above.

You can,

1. Host you own Exchange server.
2. Host FTP site.
3. Host your own websites.

However, you do sound inexperinced. I suggest that you should contact a professional who can help you configure your new server.

Since the rules of Experts-Exchange does not allow use to advertise or promote our own services. I can not recommend myself or anyone else, as much I would like to.
