BTW, the single domain license isn't all that great, it has limits on email accounts and other things which I do not remember anymore ;/

You should purchase server with CentOS 64bit Basic, then either install LXAdmin which installs all packages for you or follow ( http://howtoforge.org/perfect-server-centos-5.2-x86_64 ) Perfect Server Guide and install ISPConfig.

You then have a nice Web Interface to add domains, FTP Server to Upload files and a Web Server to serve the files.

But there are many other things to think about, Security, Firewall, Brute Force Attacks etc. a Dedicated Server is not something to be used by N00Bs (no offence!)

the simple answer if you want your site to stay up is no you would need secure it you could get a server with cpanel though and get a company like platinum server management to manage it for you thats if your site is important to you but if its a warez site i wouldnt bother with psm also i wopuldnt bother hostin it with ovh like most datacenters when they find out warez on your server they will make you remove it

When the server is setup you will get an email with the login details to the Plesk UI, this will give you all the power you need to manage your websites
ok thank you , i will do that

I also agree, he'd be much better with a shared hosting package, or if he really needs a dedicated server (bandwidth/resource) then a managed server might be better idea, unfortunately this would probably mean OVH wouldn't be the best fit for him.

Although it might not fit your needs, but OVH do a shared hosting package called "XXL" which provides 50Gb space and 2,000 GB / month bandwidth which won't require you to learn any aspects of server administration.

Server administration isn't just getting the site running, its monitoring, security and knowing what to do when the brown stuff hits the fan
