Is It Worth Hosting a Website at Home?

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

Back in the mid 1990s, hosting a website at home was kind of a mark of distinction; I had three or four different friends who hosted their own sites.

Terry Hughes has three websites and wonders if he could host them from his home office

I run three specialist websites with small hit rates – some tens a day. Is it a practical idea for me to run an internet server from my home office with broadband on a telephone line? I mostly work on an iMac.

It’s possible to run a website from home, but it may not be worth the effort. You might want to try it if you are keen to learn how to do it, or you are planning to go into a web-related business. You probably should not do it if you don’t have the time to spare or think you are going to save a lot of money.
