Hosting websites

Bought a pallet of junk and have a Server 2008 R2 Enterprise server.

Can I host public sites on it or do I need Server 2008 RS Web Server?

Are you thinking of have a few small intra / extra net sites for yourself?  Or are you thinking of trying to make money hosting sites?  There is a lot more then just having a server and internet connection to host public website.  I think you are better off using a 3rd party host and if you are thinking of doing this to make money, there are a lot of headaches for a small host.    Use it for a testing/development server.
