Default Possible new server

I'm currently testing a possible new server which I'm looking at moving to. Basically the reasons for this are:

My current host is charging quite alot for the current server
I'm looking at moving to a linux server. Most of you probably remember the security breach a little while back where someone accessed the server and placed a link on CF. I would say that I hope it to be more stable being a linux server but this one seems to be fine for a while now anyway.

We can use this thread for discussing and I'll post any updates here

Fine with me, it's your money David.
As long as we don't lose CF.

Most residential internet service providers usually don't like their customers hosting servers 24/7. Along with the service, you'll be bogged down because it's a residential connection with a residential backbone. Very few providers can support their customers hosting their own websites full time.

The server is being a bit of a pain, I've got a linux one but its only setup as a command line server. I tried to install vnc via command line but thats a no go which makes it more awkard

Very good.

Quick question what kind of specs does this server have, how much bandwidth and storage do we get through?
