We recently acquired a dedicated server and will need assistance from an server administrator in making sure everything is setup before we can use it. This server will primarily be used as a web server for an medium sized video streaming website featuring licensed adult content.

Experience with cPanel/WHM  is a plus (control panel for server)

This position will include the following responsibilities:

1. Setup server to handle our web domain (configure DNS settings, Nameservers, and other applicable domain entries).

2. Setup email system via Webuzo (installing Roundcube email client should be fairly simple.) Next configure email accounts and setup proper MX records.

3. Setup PHPMyAdmin and create user accounts for system

Additionally, we are always looking for somebody with their experience and professional opinion to help us optimize our server for the best experience for our users.

Should we use Cloudflare for our CDN? We are currently planning to use 100TB as a CDN for our video streaming content, but unsure if we should use an additional CDN for images, html and other web files (This is where we need your help).

This position will be ongoing in case other issues arise, or upgrades need to be performed.

Our company is based out of the United States, and currently works within the PST Time Zone.
