There seems to be books on every single subject out there, but is there a book specifically on how to run a hosting company from the technical side?
I'm talking stuff like:
- Setting up a dedicated server
- Setting up and using Cpanel / WHM / Plesk / Ensim
- DNS! DNS! DNS!
- Upgrading software (server, PHP, MySQL, etc.), OS, kernel, etc.
- Basic security
- Server maintenance and other tips
Etcetera, etcetera... I'm thinking something along the lines of the O'Reilly "Hacks" series, but specifically for web hosts - "Web Hosting Hacks".
If someone here wrote this, I'd buy it in a New York minute.
On this topic, besides Hosting Life, are there any other related sites that folks can recommend for administering a web server?
