    You should need Dedicated IP (s) as well for this.

    If you do not known what it means by dedicated IPs, I strongly feel that you are not yet suitable to create your own VPS. Just go to the cheap hosting companies, they are selling sub $10 VPS but of course be wary, you get what you pay for.

    You need to get atleast one dedicated IP for your spare i5 machine from your ISP. Try Centos as your OS as its free and reliable.

    Turn your IIS services on in Windows Services?

    You can use VMWare or other virtualization software. If you want a static public IP you need to contact your ISP for that but most likely they won't allow hosting from home.

    If I were you and wanted to get the most out of the hardware I'd install docker and then build containerized environments for each of your applications/workloads.

    I would recommend OP to use dynamic DNS if you don't have dedicated IP from your service provider.

    As libertyvps said, I also recommend vmware ESXi for virtualization. It's great tool.

    The OP didn't give much information about remote access and what's the intention for the VPS, however you can use windows 7 to access remotely via mstsc service.

    If the VPS is for personal use (I assume testing/development), you could assign it a virtual local IP from your router.

    Also you could use port forwarding to reroute the traffic from port 80 from your real IP to your VPS (again from your router's settings).

    You can try ESXi or Proxmox. If you could provide more information about your network setup, as well as what you intend to run on the VPS' as well as what OS you want to use on the node, it would help to provide more accurate suggestions.

    For OP: I know a guy who started this business like this and now he has his own hosting business. You can definitely do this but you will have a lot of roadblocks. Best way would be not to do it at home but go with your server pc at a datacenter and pay there a monthly fee for them to keep your PC in their center.

    If you want resell VPS, will be difficult as you don't have 100mbits guaranted and you maybe not can edit reverse dns ?
    Contact your ISP and see if you can have a subnet (several ip).

    If it's just for you, go VMWARE product or Proxmox (download iso and it's setup quite fast, however you will need have main OS with Proxmox)

    Then on your router just map port, for example vnc 5800 go to 58001 for first computer, 58002 for second etc. Most router do it well (except for FTP & DNS sometime very bugged)
    Best is you put the proxmox as routeur with a VM doing the routing so you can control it better (but much depend of kind of connexion you have)

    8GB is not a lot if you want use several windows VM but you use balloning and share memory between host.
    With linux VM it's already integrate in the kernel, but better go to OpenVZ (faster than any other virtualization solution as it's not really virtualization too ;)
