i hope i am posting to the right category.
I want to buy hosting plan with a 3rd party provider ie Gandi etc
What are the things to look for ie features etc like ie apatche or whatever else is needed to allow transfer upload and operation of the website incliding all these Panels etc please.
I will build a website for a friend but i am not aware of server hosting and 3rd party providers including technologies behind them etc.
Alternatively has anyone found useful to buy a computer and convert it to a server and pros or cons of this method.
Finally under which cases i will need ie a CRM to be installed as well to my server.
