I want to set up SharePoint for the following:

Total company size 200.
Want to use the site for the
Intranet           Internal departments use the Intranet as a way to provide an online Read-Only archive between departments.
Extranet          Remote and local employees go here for the following:
                                Benefits documents
                                Corporate briefings
                                Where to find downloadable (approved templates)
                                Collaborative Team sites
Internet           For the rest of the world

We will be hosting all of it and will be using 1and1 for the domain/public DNS hosting. Is there an straight forward setup guide for this?

And should I go with 2016 over 2013? I've heard 2016 is cloud based completely.

SharePoint 2016 is not cloud only. As a best practice, you should use 2016 compared to 2013. (Newer version's support will run in to 202x and older version support will expire before then.)

As far as setting up as you describe, if you have no experience with SharePoint, you should probably use a consultant to accomplish what you want to do.

If you have some SharePoint experience and are good at IT, the product documentation (available via Technet and MSDN) is fantastic and is free. For more specific questions that you will run across, "Experts Exchange" is great resource to have.

Hope that helps and good luck...

There is no out of the box to process to "copy structure and data over". Depending upon the amount of data, there may be efficient to do this. But that's a different questions. Your best bet is to close this original questions and open a new question with "Migration from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2016" in the title and you will get more exposure.

Thanks

I have the time to learn but for production purposes I need to deploy sooner rather than later. here on EE there is an option to setup for projects for pay, like this. How does that work?

That's correct. There is not direct migration path between the two. However, if you are just dealing with documents you may not need to do a full migration.

I do not know how the projects for pay works on this site. There is information about on the site, with links a lot of places so I am sure someone could help out. (btw. I am not currently doing external projects.)

Good luck...

If you just have a few hundred documents in just a few document libraries and maintain metadata is not a concern, you could move the documents over with Windows Explorer for example.
