I am using SBS 2003 with a Red Hat Linux server. I'd like to host 2-3 small websites. I expect hits to be <100 per day total.

How do I go about having three different web sites host on one server?

Should I use the Linux server to host the sites or the SBS2003?

Use Red Hat if you're familiar with Apache and understand virtual hosts.

Setting up multiple sites on a Red Hat box with apache can be tricky, but also rewarding. You'll save money, and have increased reliability.

Do not, however, assume that it will be completely secure. You'll have to take steps to make it that way.

Hosting on Linux multiples website is kinda easy when you understand virtual hosts of Apache! Lot of web hostings use this technology and when you know it well you can do incredible things!
