I just mistakingly posted this on Stack Exchange but don't know how to delete it...
Anyway, I was thinking of building a home server to use instead of renting a VPS, because in the long run it would be cheaper. What I'm concerned with is the bandwidth limit of my house.
I know when I'm downloading something off the internet, if I download at high speeds the rest of the computers connected to my router will become slower. Is there any way to avoid this? I'm afraid this will happen if I get a home server because I know it will be downloading and uploading a large amount of data, but I don't want the rest of the computers in my house to suffer from slow speeds resulting from this. I don't want to limit the bandwidth of the server because I would like it to perform the best it can.
There are other cable outlets in my house, will connecting a modem and router there avoid this problem?
