...I'm a little lost by your question, but I'll try my best to answer it.

If you want high-bandwidth, you have to pay for high bandwidth, that's an ISP thing and has nothing to do with the computer. If you want the machine to run hosting applications (a.k.a server "daemons") you need to install them, and then register a domain ( with a service, like GoDaddy.

Now, I'm not sure what you're talking about when you start mentioning the words "virtual" and "ports". But if you're asking for someone to pre-install applications and daemons for you, good luck finding a place that will do Linux/UNIX for you. It's easier, and a heck of alot cheaper to do it yourself. If you're just starting out with Linux, look into distributions that come with package managers and package manager wrap-arounds (a.k.a. "wrappers) - such as Debian, Fedora, Gentoo and Mandriva. Debian has "apt", Fedora has "yum", Mandriva has "urpmi" and Gentoo has "emerge". They're all front ends for different package managers, but they all perform the same function: calculating dependencies, obtaining packages and installing them.
