I am looking to transfer my three web domains and set up a small website.
Also I want the server to host the associated email accounts as well as act as a file store so I can access files on the move

Finally act as a VPN endpoint allowing me to browse the net using a UK IP address.

The village package looks as though it would meet the bill.

Now the questions:
Can you confirm that this service / package would, with the use of suitable open source software fulfil the above requirements?
Indeed would you recommend suitable software?

How easy would it be for a 'Linux / Opensource' virgin to setup?

Would extra disk space be available for file storage and if so at what additional cost?

Its not likely you could squeeze all that software into 128MB of RAM, so I'd have to say no.

Most websites require a database server, which eats up a lot of memory, and hosting email requires anti-spam/anti-virus checks, which also take up a lot of memory.

I would suggest one of our cPanel plans if you want a managed server, or a City if you plan on installing/configuring that yourself.

Thanks for this response.

The website envisaged would not require a database -it is just a collection of fairly static pages.

On the RAM issue what typical applications can you run in that space? If you need more RAM can you not use disk space as a swapfile (albeit with a performance hit)?

A static website (using no database) can be served in 64MB of RAM easily, with the burst memory being a fast form of swap. We have a premade template for that, called 'tiny webserver'.

If you need to host email, anti-spam and anti-virus, you will need a larger server.
