comment SSH and security guidelines
The decision to disable, or not, the sudo password goes with how paranoid you are. If you can imagine, and get worried about, someone compromising your account and gaining shell access to it, then not having your password asked is something to worry about, if not then you are good to go.

comment Virtualbox host only + NAT network slow
I second the DNS problem and to validate this with SSH, just add UseDNS no to /etc/ssh/sshd_config and see if the connection will be made quicker.

comment Multiple sites on server but only one is down. Possible DNS issue?
Yes, it is. But check and see if you don't have different files for each domain/site.

comment Dangers to giving Apache user a shell
I do agree with @lVlint67. Giving apache access to at and iptables is way dangerous, since any kind of port or script may be run. On the other hand, having apache write the rules, make sure your script will sanitize them, checking for proper DENY rules on a specific table of your firewall. You may also have a look at fail2ban.org

comment Checking Linux Disk space
Agree with Nagios, but he may monitor only local filesystems through snmp or even scripts. And the NFS isn't an "issue", it's just df trying to get the information over the network and, depending on the size of the disks, hanging on while it counts up the statistics.
