    Most of those requirements are software which can be installed fairly easily.

    Do you have any hardware requirements?

    You can get a decent server for under $100, I recommend going to www.limsestonenetworks.com and looking at the clearence dedicated servers, after that open a live chat and see what deals you can get, usually through live chat they give you some nice discounts.

    You can pretty much run that on just about anything. You might do well to just go with a CentOS based server and save a few dollars so you don't have to pay for RHEL or Windows. As CentOS is basically RHEL for the most part. Just run Apache/PHP/MySQL with ease. I'm sure you can even get a control panel to make management easier.

    Come up with a budget and what spec's on hardware you are looking to get.

    What are the hardware specs you are looking for? I would suggest using CentOS 5.x as well since it is open source

    There are some providers that throw in server management free of charge, but be careful not to lump in software development and installation in with your server management expectations.

    There are providers who can provide you with servers for $50-75/mo. on clearance and you could add a $20-40/mo. administration package from a management company to get you started.

    Best of luck with your search!

    Actually your best bet is grabbing a Managed VPS. I've used Knownhost in the recent past for a couple of months and they were solid. Check them out and save some time and hassle not managing your own box or paying additional for management.

    For $100 you will be able to get Core2Quad at max. Easily you will get 2000-3000GB bandwidth included in that.

    Go for linux as windows servers will have a cost. Same goes for MSSQL.

    Woops! Sorry, the link is www.limestonenetworks.com

    I made a mistake with the spelling.

    If you have little experience of doing everything yourself on a server, a *managed* VPS is definitely the right path for that work load.
