Currently I have my? 5 DVD selling sites (running osCommerce, CREloaded) with Hostgator shared hosting.? ?
I would like to order a couple dedicated servers from [url removed, login to view] and use your set up service, but I have some questions please:
1. The OS I would need is CentOS?? 64-bit or 32-bit?
2. Where do you recommend I buy Cpanel licensing?? Is there a free control panel that's comparable?
3. If I do everything in Cpanel, I don't really need to? administer the server right?
4. How? do I config my order so the server will do the same as one of those boxes from Hostgator?
5. If I order 2 servers at the same time, can they be connected by a cross cable?? I would like to use 1 as a web and 1 as a database server.? Can this be done later if I start with only 1 server right now?
6. All I want is a box like the one my sites are on.? However, I just want my sites on the box instead of sharing it with hundreds or thousands of other sites.? I don't want hot linking to my images (Cpanel?), I don't want a DDOS attack (you?), I don't want an? ?€œSQL injection?€ attack (solution?), I don't want my box to get virus (solution?), I don't want hackers to get in my box to steal passwords and/or my customers credit card information (solution?) .....
7. Have I covered everything?

Hello, We just want our own dedicated server configured similar to the server from Hostgator.... except we don't want to share it with hundreds of websites. Please quote and list what you will install and do once I give you server login info. We just want to be able to ftp our website content and install CREload osCommerce after you finish. Also list cPanel licensing fee if you have it or give recommendation where we should buy the license. You can also recommend any open source control panel that is comparable to cPanel. Lastly, we would need an SSL certificate installed (purchase from [url removed, login to view]) Thanks, Teo
