Hosting a big site and I need some help

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

Long story short I’ve gotten into a situation that is way beyond my pay grade.
I need some help in hosting a site. It will have ~200.000 unique users monthly, a huge database and a lot of traffic.

I’m not even sure where to begin with all this.
Should I go for a dedicated server?
Will a 1gb port be enough? Obviously I’ll need an umettered connection.
RAID setup? How much HDD space will be enough to be on the safe side?
Can 1 server even handle it?

I’m sure I’ve missed a lot of things that need to be said for a good answer so I’ll keep a very close eye on this thread and respond asap.

Thank you.
