A serious warning: start hosting for customers only if you have much
experience with all the involved services. And much means for over
years. Web hosting is no trivial job.

conditions and how they work. First you will have to learn
administrating DNS from scratch. www.tldp.org has a DNS (bind) howto.

from asking a bit and reading a few papers. I told you initially. It
needs a lot and long experience.
