    Dedicated Server Configuration?

    I need to get a dedicated server for my website and I was wondering if the following configuration would be OK. I expect to have around 50 hits a day and about 50 MBs of bandwidth usage a month. Unfortunately, shared hosting is not an option.

    Operating System: Red Hat Linux 6.2
    CPU: Intel 400MHz Celeron Processor
    RAM: 32 Megabytes
    Hard Drive: Quantum Fireball 4.3GB EIDE Hard Drive Gigabytes

    That is wayyyyyy OVERKILL!!! Even the crappest shared hosting plan could handle 50 hits a day with ease! What makes a dedicated server so important?

    I need to install some things that won't work on a shared server such as piping email and OpenSSL.

    I am sure you could get those things on a shared hosting plan somewhere, but, anyway .. that configuration would be more than enough for what you needed.
