My System Specs


If you're doing webhosting, probably best to just buy external. Something like HostGator is like $4/month and like $10-20/year for a domain name.

So for $50/year, you get something hosted off-site, high uptime and you don't need to worry about bandwidth or hackers targeting your home IP.

Opening up port 80/21 on your home router seems to automatically alert a bunch of script kiddies and they'll hammer your server non-stop, at least that's what I've encountered.
