That question belongs to "Hardware and Performance" forum http://moodle.org/mod/forum/view.php?id=596 (check the initial pointers given in its introduction).
In fact, you've posted the same question there, http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=184720 which is not done
Coming to the securiy part of your question:
> In summary i want to make sure my server or whatever i need to use is secure...
> the system will need to be safe and secure ( so files can't be tampered with, ...
Reading the what could happen to world class server administrators http://www.kernel.org/ ("Security breach on kernel.org" in the Site News) and the blunders star hackers make http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/0,1518,783778,00.html the term secure systems doesn't sound convincing there days.
> my knowledge is poor so exactly what i will need would be helpful..
Yet another reason to go for an external hoster. Read the pointers in the "Hardware and Performance" forum.
