This may not sound *amazing* ...  I'll toss my hat in on this one since it
sounds like fun.

You could get a range of public IP's from COMCAST, and plug them into your
home system. $50
Each device is treated as a "node", e.g.: dev1.armdev.com with dynip (just
in case)
Set up a primary website, set up paypal, create marketing buzz on the wave
of the whole arm dev scene(?), do a free beta trial run, and it will get
going quickly.

I bet you could have this happen in less than a week without incurring
contractual obligations larger than what you already pay out for.

Once you get it rollin' only *THEN* you move it to a datacenter in a rack
.... And because you used dyndns, it looks like you upgraded everything by
magic.
