    Selling Web Hosting

    I currently run a decent server and am looking at selling web hosting to a few friends. Assuming I purchase a business package through Comcast which allows you to host in accordance with their TOS, is it even possible to set up DNS with only one server box? If I had a second one (for redundancy), wouldn't it need to be offsite anyways? Any recommendations - sensible advice on whether this is a good idea/what I'm looking at??

    yes, it is possible for you to setup DNS with only one server box.

    I advise you, if you are going to have a static IP, to use services such as everydns.net or afraid.org.

    Those two are quite stable, and I got afraid.org as my primary DNS, and everydns.net as my secondary
    Don't waste your energy trying to change opinions ... Do your thing, and don't care if they like it.

    Any books/resources you recommend for web hosting specifically? Also, do you use a control panel like Webmin, EHCP, etc?
