Than you would need to decide if you will be a windows or linux host. You would need to install security for your server and only open needed ports. There are many softwares out there for windows that would get you up with basic features such as php, mysql, perl and etc. IIS would be best for windows and Apache is good for linux. You would also need to get an FTP server.
