I operate almost half a dozen Linux server. My advice would be to get Redhat/Cpanel/WHM combo. Start off with a virtual server and move to a real one eventually. Don't go with ubuntu and other disto, as they can easily break other softwares. Pay the money for Redhat/Cpanel/WHM, it saves you money on the long run. Even after all these years, I still have to ask other people when things goes wrong. But there is lot of flexibly in Linux server so its worth it.
