Below are minimal hardware requirements for successful DotNetPanel installation.
Dedicated Windows Server
In order to install DotNetPanel and make your hosting business you need a dedicated internet server. We don't dictate any specific requirements for your hardware; Intel Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon 64 Processor with 1GB RAM and 40GB HDD configuration is quite enough for DotNetPanel to operate. But remember, the more powerful server you have the more user accounts, web sites, databases, etc. you can create on it.
You should have an administrative access either local or via Remote Desktop to manage your server, i.e. install and configure server software, check system logs, etc.
Dedicated IP Addresses
If you are planning to host and manage DNS and mail software on your server, it is recommended you have at least 2 (two) dedicated IP addresses pointing to your server. Of course, you may install and configure everything using only one IP address, but generally it's not a good practice, because at the end you'll get incorrect DNS zones and mail exchangers. So, purchase at least 2 IP addresses from your dedicated server hosting provider.
To know how many IP addresses you have:
Open "Network Connections"
Right-click active "Local Area Connection" and select "Properties"
Select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" and click "Properties" button
Click "Advanced..." button
In "IP Addresses" box you are able to see the range of IP addresses assigned to your server.
Your dedicated server should have outbound Internet access. The outbound access required for:
DotNetPanel Configuration Studio in order to download component installation files
DotNetPanel Server and Enterprise Server in order to check licenses against remote licensing server
Your customer web sites using web services
