This is just a note to acknowledge that back in 2001 until 2011 I hosted a number of Gaming websites for a number of communities. It generated a whole $100 of revenue (never near the operating costs) but had over 20 million page views and allowed me to develop skills as a system administrator on CentOS, cPanel and various scripts which were utilised. We went from simple shared hosting to using multiple Dedicated Servers during our peak:
