What kind of hosting do you mean? As in "permanent live hosting" or "test
server hosting"? And will it be sitting at an ISP, or within your LAN?

I ask because it's sometimes a good idea to use a second Ethernet card
for added security (in cases where it has to do LAN routing/firewall--at
least that's what an old sysadmin of mine used to claim), which obviously
would be a problem with an iMac. But it would probably be bored by
serving webpages for low-traffic sites... ;-)

How many hits/month are we talking?

Only thing is that you'd probably want to get a decent-sized HD and add a
fair amount of swap for insurance--that's my suggestion.
