My first suggestion would be to contact an exsisting Web Space provider instead of worrying with all the needed servers and the like. If that is not an option you need to consider exactly what that Web site will be doing. Will the site have a high amount of hits, will you be selling space later on? What type of bandwith will be required for the site. I have personally set up several acctual web servers, but most of them have resided on an exsisting network and thus had most of the questions youare asking already answered.

To be quite honest, to acuratey answer your question, more information would be required. I invite you to send me email and I will happily advise you further.

Like #1 says it all depends on what you are wanting to do on your web-site, I run a commercial web server, and I am running it on next to nothing, but that won't last too long. As far as telephone lines, does this mean that you want to run an ISP and provide dial up service for the public? or are you planning on running the server over dial-up lines, not a good Idea. Software...well if you know unix based OS's I would suggest a flavor of Linux, most are free so that drives your cost down, but can be a pain to configure, esp. if you are new to the unix world. RedHat Linux comes with everything you need to run a web/ftp/mail server, and is a bargain even if you buy it at the retail price of $80-$90 (or you could download it for free)

wellgood luck to you and feel free to e-mail with any further questions
