    Hello... let us talk about hardware specifications and servers... For example I like to use the ISPConfig Perfect Multiserver setup on Ubuntu 20.04 and Debian 10 and that's every server is a own physical dedicated server...

    So we need: 7 own dedicated servers with a own IP... Happy shopping... :D

    If you buy a PC for your home... maybe for gaming... than always bigger is better... best Mainboard... best CPU... best best best...

    But how the hardware gurus here choose a server? What is important for a panel server or name server? What you need for a mail or db server?

    I think a name server must be fast with high CPU and a lot of RAM but he need no disk space... a mail server needs a lot of disk space and the db server too...

    Would be nice to see / know how the pro players here setting up a network...

    It depends on your budget most of the time.

    Name server uses very little resources. Raspberry PI is enough.
    If you have connections to corporations running server farms, ask if they donate their old servers. Even 10 year old server may be in excellent condition for not so demanding use.
    Otherwise, search for local used computer dealers. Servers may be cheaper than new desktop computers. If you get server with enough RAM and fast disk system, install virtualization server like Proxmox and create virtual hosts according to your needs.

    I dont wont to speak about the budget or the financial part... just the Hardware... I just ask what is a good hardware setup for the Multiserver tutorial...

    Then buy the best servers with the highest specs available because your question is no longer important if one can afford the best servers with the highest specs as that is "good hardware". :p
