    Hi, I am incredibly new to any sort of programming etc, I have to make a server for website.
    the site will be very similar to youtube in so much as the server will need to store allot of video content.
    I would be very grateful for ANY suggestions, including links
    Thank you.

    I have spent days trying to research this i just can't find specifics that don't involve hiring a company to it for me

    As I understood, you want to make ur own server, then I suggest you to use *NIX (Linux), or maybe MS Windows Server 2003, (casually 2008).

    Youtube uses a custom content management system tweaked to perfection by their own guys. You should check out ostube or phpmotion. Those are two youtube-like cms that might give you what you are looking for.

    Use ping command and get the server's IP address and then access the site through that IP address. Cheerz!

    Basically Your need is a GOOD Web-server which can simultaneously handle tons of requests , So OS is only one factor of it!

    I would recommend Apache on a Cent - OS or any GOOD linux Distribution which u feel comfortable on!

    Good choice! But pay attention on sum security holes, check the exploits available for that platform and try to avoid them. :)
