  1. Hey,
    I wasn't sure where to post this...I am thinking of buying a server because I already pay for server hosting for (business) and (game) and I am more than likely going to start another business website and another gaming website. So I was jsut wondering how much would a server cost to run at lease the first to sites?, the price excludes internet connection.

    Well im not a expert here, but I think if you have realativly low traffic sites you could pretty much install Linux and Apache 2 on a $1000 (or much lower, depending on the workload) computer and use it as a server. Its what I do with a old dell I got for free.

    As Boogity said.. You can host a website on a 100MHz Pentium. It all depends on what content you are serving to how many people and what kind of reliability you need.

    Most likely any new machine will do just fine for you. I do recommend you get something with SCSI RAID.
