a LAMP server (or WIMP, i suppose), Apache mod_security, a firewall.

I'm sure other have plenty of suggestions. You want a domain name? Yeah, you have to register it. I don't know of a way to get around that unless you only want it to be available on your private network (something I doubt).

They'll have the specifics on the info you're looking for.
With all the good web designers in the world its surprising that you still come across sites that look like that.

The Internic site looks perfectly fine to me. Then again, I place function above form. :)

If you you want an example of a site that may leave a burning sensation in your eyes, take a look at this site recently mentioned on Digg.com:

EDIT: To add to the answers of the original question, you will need at least one other company; an Internet Service Provider that lets you run a server on your internet connection and can provide the needed bandwidth and connection uptime that you require.
