I have a 512 kb/s DSL service at home. I do not have a static IP but I can get one if I pay some extra to my ISP.
Now, if I get the static IP, can I make my home box act as my internet host? What else do I need?
P.S. I know that if at all possible, the site I make available this way might be slow, that is alright, my question is if it is possible at all.
I need this for very small traffic. I am a PHP developer and for my projects I am often asked to provide a demo. I currently use a free hosting for this purpose but it is down most of the time and support is non-existent. So I thought to set-up my home computer as my test server.
With this please note that:
- I will only occasionally have 'visitors' and that will be one or possibly two visitors at any time.
- These demos, are to showcase functionality, so no big images are served and page views will normally generate under 100KB of traffic.
