Can I host my own website?

To make your Web site visible to the world, it has to be hosted on a Web server. If you want other people to view your web site, you must copy your site to a public server. Even if you can use your own PC as a web server, it is more common to let an Internet Service Provider (ISP) host your site.

Hosting your web site on your own server is always an option. Here are some points to consider:

Hardware Expenses
To run a "real" web site, you will have to buy some powerful server hardware. Don't expect that a low cost PC will do the job. You will also need a permanent (24 hours a day ) high-speed connection.
Software Expenses
Remember that server-licenses often are higher than client-licenses. Also note that server-licenses might have limits on number of users.
Labor Expenses
Don't expect low labor expenses. You have to install your own hardware and software. You also have to deal with bugs and viruses, and keep your server constantly running in an environment where "everything could happen".
Why Shouldn't Hosting your own Web site?
  • For self-hosted sites, your site will go down if you lose your internet connection, your computer loses power, or your system crashes.
  • Note that if you host your website on your PC, the your site is likely to respond more slowly than traditionally-hosted sites.
  • You usually get what you pay for. If a free hosting service or method seems too good to be true, it probably is.
  • Not all advice on the Internet is legal or accurate. Unless you're a tech guru and know what to look for, stick to suggestions from reputable sources.

Clearly we will not suggest you for hosting your own web site. There are many reputed companies out there that will do this for you.
