Hey Guys,

I am looking into setting up a server.

What is the best specs one should get to get?  The middle ground one.

I ran one of these for a long time and never had any issue.


intel Core i3-3220

Plenty of storage, good ram, great price at $32, and nice people to work with.

Then all you need is the free cloudflare account and the $15 per month cPanel with WHM and your good to go, no more hosting account needed.  You just need a registrar for the domain is all.

Now if you really know what your doing there are free panels out there but you really have to know how things work server side and you need to know some bash as well if you choose one of those.
