I am getting myself a virtual dedicated server so my web service can have a bit more access to the environment, have a mail server and provide me more flexibility as I move forward. But it's new for me.
I'll be using GoDaddy.com.
What things might I think about adding to my new system? What things should I NOT install? And what advice can you give a newbie as I embark in this new direction?
I hope SQL Server, IIS and other tools will already be installed. Should I expect to be able to run a web service out of the box? I will probably install Vistual Studio 2005 there so I can debug.
