If interested in them drop me a PM. I'll get your some specs and you come up with pricing

I SHOULD make another posting in the sales area and do an inventory of what I have and specs etc. I"ll see if I can work on that this week

That is quite a mind blower to make your basement your datacenter.

You're also paying your datacenter for the stable FAST connection.
Hosting a few sites here and there but you will be able to host a ton of sites like a real datacenter is capable of doing.

As Jordan mentioned there are many things to consider that make your clients sites run like clock work.

I know in another thread you mentioned that you wanted to bring in a partner to help get things going, but there's more to the hosting business than setting up a computer and installing Apache.
I know for a fact you can get bandwidth from Time Warner or AT & T in your residence and do what you want I have done it. I did however move it to a building more suited for it but it can be done and is allowed by the bigboys. Yes you will have to purchase the bandwidth which for me at that time was $800 a month for a 3 mb pipe However in this day and age you can get 15 mb up and down relatively cheap with the big boys blessing. However you probably can't get enough bandwidth to sufficiently serve a large customer base.

Just my 2 cents.

Basement DC != Good Idea.
You're better off colocating, and it's really not that expensive. The issue with your own DC is addressing cooling, redundent power & the network. The investment you'll have to make to reseolve those issues is considerable.

Then again there's not reason you can't setup a http://diywebserver.com/ to just experiment, host a few personal/friends sites.

That's too bad. Are you now considering colocation or other options?

Yes, I agree. I think it's much cheaper & safe.

I think you would be better off colocating servers. Attempting to run multiple servers in your basement will definitely be a risky investment.

Find yourself a cheap place to colocate - don't run a data center in your basement. That could get pretty unsafe depending on how much equipment and power usage you're doing.

I've seen them too. Seems that's my idea of entertainment, as my wife peered over my shoulder and said "I can't believe you'd rather watch this than a movie!". I've got a few 1-2u's running at home, but it's solely for my amusement, and maybe testing new software, etc.
