You can determine the version based on the features you with to offer your users (http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/en-us/buy/Pages/Editions-Comparison.aspx). Additionally, bsed on the users which will be accessing the system via internet, you can simply purchase the required ammount of CALs for your user base. (http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/en-us/buy/Pages/Licensing-Details.aspx). Either version will work via internet, but you will need to work with your licensing provider on the amount of CALs and server licenses.
The lic type depends on the type of the users (employees vs external users)
