The Perfect Server - ISP Config 3
The Perfect Server is an open source hosting solution. I have set it up under VMPlayer and Open-SUSE 11.3 on Windows 7. Get your copy here http://www.ispconfig.org/. I bought the manual for 5 Euros but the gui is intuitive and quite easy to understand. This is the perfect server for proof of concept websites. I can put up a new joomla site with full email and database facilities in less than 2 minutes. If you want you own hosting business then ISP Config 3 has enough features and granularity to give you all you need. You can appoint re-sellers and give them the ability to sign up their own clients. They can apply quota to storage and each feature such as email domain, database, and website can be assigned its own price structure. And last but not least if you set it up in a virtual environment then expansion, as your business grows, is easy.
