 I want to give free web hosting and email
I haven't done it before. I want users to open their accounts on web, they
will have an email like u...@website.com and web page like user.website.com
What shall I do for better performance. Somebody said PHP+MySql shall be
used and somebody said it can be done with Perl. Anyway I will need help, I
can pay you little but I'm not a rich man

Any help, paid or free will be very appreciated.
Thank you.

You can improve performance by having a fast network connection and plenty
of RAM.  I don't see how PHP could possibly improve performance since it
adds overhead and uses resources, but I have never used it, so I don't
know if it is better than a combination of CGI and SSI.  Someone I do work
for briefly had PHP on his server and it required files totalling 150 MB.

If you offer free webhosting, be ready to be swamped with requests for
websites.  For example look at virtualave.net which has 402,964 member
sites climbing daily (on multiple boxes of course).  They run Apache
(suexec) on FreeBSD.  They don't do PHP and I doubt if they have MySql.

PHP is a scripting language similiar to C that dynamicly creates web pages. It
can also be used to write frontends, ie. like add news for your site through a
form. PHP in combination with MySQL (a database) is very powerful. I don't see
why either one would use a tremendous amount of resources, since they would only
run when called.
