Sorry if this seems like a noob question for this place, but, I dont know who I should buy a virtual server from... or how to go about setting it up.
I looked at godaddys, and they seem very very bare in the features you get for 30 a month (cheap I know, but this is my first VS). The only thing I see that I may do with this server at the moment is host a few small video files that people that have bought my app can download, and a database for another app to download data from. I will also probably hosting a minimal database driven website off of it as well. Nothing fancy.
I also dont know anything about what to expect when I get it. What am I going to have to install on it, how do I actually get hosting up and running, etc... This is my first go at it. Any help woudl be greatly appreciated.
