or to buy a server rack or etc from a specialised company

A server i wold deffinitly buy one.

I would also buy a HP or IBM server,

A good option is blade, wich is easy to upgrade, and you have the option to rent power if its needed for a short period of time.

Edit: forgot to mention DELL servers

He doesen't really want to offer a dedicated server to the clients , cause that seems what de blade server does and its alot more expensive then the rack version

or is this worth the price the blade server costs over a rack one ?

can u also run diffrent clients website's with diffrent domains on a single ip ?
