Hosting From Home

This is the first video in a new series I will be working on taking you through the considerations you need to think about before you try hosting your own web server, mail server, or game server at home. This is easy to do at home if you have a good internet connection, an old computer, a firewall, and some computer skills. My son hosts a minecraft server, for example, and he is only 11.

  1. How do you host 2+ websites from home?

    If my ISP provides me only 1 external IP, and my websites both use ports 80/443, what do I need to get it to work? Source port config? Reverse proxy?

  2. I don’t see the point of doing this if you have to pay $5-15 a month for an IP address, I can get hosting for less than that.
    I don’t get it, IP address should be a one time fee, like when you register a name with your county.

  3. I run a knife sharpening business and have a website – just one page – and it didn't make sense to buy hosting just to display one single static html page. So I played around a bit and am hosting that page directly from my home desktop PC. It's IIS and Windows 10. I also made sure to buy a battery backup for my desktop PC. So far so good! If I was running a serious business website I would never host at home.

  4. okay so I'm not understanding what the whole point of the video was if the whole video was you explaining to us how to host a website yourself but then at the end sang Don't host the website

  5. I am considering setting up a home server. I am building an application on aws which I plan on delivering for free so I want to minimize the cost to myself. The app will require a pretty powerful instance once it is launched but the real problem is storage. Because of the way the app works it needs approx 4TB of attached storage, directly accessable to from the file system of the nodejs server. With these requirements, it starts looking like my EC2 instance is going to be costing me over $1000 a month which is just not doable. The thing is, even the smallest EC2 instances offer over 1000 Mbps upload speed, which is also important as my app is a streaming media app. How can someone who is hosting a home server achieve the upload speeds necessary to serve streaming video to many users at once?

  6. HI me too I try to creat a Server Hosting on windows sever 2019 but I can't ping out side of my network the ping is always <1 could you help me please thank.

  7. Nice Sharing. I Liked it. I am personally planning to deploy my own complete hosting solution services. If you don't mind can you please share what is the best solution for securing network and server's and which is the best email server, I need to use because I am planning to use Linux based email server.

  8. TLDW: some weird dude flexes about how smart and wonderful his home hosting is, and how other people probably shouldn't do it because they aren't as awesome as him.

  11. The thing to consider is what you want to do with it how much bandwidth you need and how secure it needs to be Bandwidth in computer networking refers to the data rate supported by a network connection or interface. Most hosting companies offer a variety of bandwidth options in their plans from 1 G to 100 G, some hosting companies even offer unlimited bandwidth. So exactly what is bandwidth as it relates to web hosting.
