All great websites have a great server behind them. NETTUS has shown us how to set up a dedicated web server for free (with Apache, MySQL, and PHP) using that old computer you have lying around the house and some free software. In the tutorial, you are going to learn the following things.
1) You are going to install the Ubuntu Server operating system. Ubuntu is easy to use with simple administration. It also has a rather large and extremely active community behind it, which makes getting support a breeze.
2) You are going to install an OpenSSH server. This allows you to administer your server from remote computers.
3) A LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) stack is going to be installed. This provides the backbone that will run your web site. Apache is the industry standard web server on Unix-based operating systems.
4) You are going to install a firewall to protect your server from unauthorized access.

To be honest, I am really happy with the hosting solution Mosso provides when I am writing this review. It is really tempting to switch WebAppers hosting to Mosso especially when I intend to develop some more blogs/websites soon. If I plan to join the web design business, Mosso will be one of my picks for web hosting. Much resource (manpower and money) will be saved as I would let Mosso to deal with customer support and related matters. Hoping Mosso can sponsor the hosting for WebAppers. ; )
Scaling Web applications for growth requires either large expensive components that don’t get used up fast enough, or small and cheap components that are difficult to manage and quickly become expensive because of complexity and staffing requirements as the infrastructure grows. Just getting started can cost up to $250,000 in the first year alone when you factor in the cost of servers, storage, contract with a data center to host the equipment, get the bandwidth commitments done, and then hire a competent system administrator (maybe two as the Web is 24/7). Even with all of this – there is no guarantee you’ll be able to handle success.
Joyent’s Accelerators allow you to build out your infrastructure on an on-demand basis in small to large increments depending on your application’s needs. We like to call it ‘no-leash computing’. Joyent Accelerators are next-generation virtual computers that grow and multiply (or shrink and consolidate) depending on the real world demands faced by your Web application. Accelerators are built on highest-end AMD Opteron x64 multi-core servers with 4GiB RAM per core. Excellent platform for Ruby, Python, PHP and Java applications.
