    If your DC has any forums, I would ask in there. If not, you can visit the ev1servers.net forums and cPanel or Plesk forums if you have a control panel.

    An easy start...

    I started with a plain RedHat 7.x running Plesk 5.x now running
    Plesk 7.0

    All / any panels have their ups and downs. All I can
    suggest is go to Plesk.Com check out the demo and browse
    around. Very easy to use and simple for the user end.

    Very easy to install and does not intrude on the existing O/S
    you are running... I have it running on RH 7.3, RedHat Enterprise
    2, 3 and soon Fedora Core 1.

    Very easy to install as well, I purchased mine awhile back for
    199$ for 30 domains. That might sound inexpensive but do your
    research because Plesk 7 and maybe 8 will come with additional add-ons
    and they are not free.

    I would check out http://www.webhostgear.com as they have some nice begginer tutorials.

    Read up on the cPanel documentation (if that is the control panel you will be using) and play around with their demo first.

    Id also get familair with the linux platform, as this will more than likely be the operating system your server will be running. Download a opy of red hat, or fedora, and learn a few of the basics before jumping into a server.

    Experience is the best way to learn, and learning the theory is only part of the process.

    Good luck with it all!

    use demodemo.com for some insight..

    Check out DemoDemo.Com and check out some panels and howtos, maybe that
    can help you out on figuring out what panel(s) fits your needs.

    1) Check out http://www.hostinglife.com/

    2) Buy a 50 pound (weight.. not that funny british money) UNIX manual and read it.

    Good luck!
