Hosting Server at Home

This is a short video going over a project I just finished to prove that a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B (new as of February 2015) can run a light duty website and low volume email server. I have installed Apache2 for the web server, which takes like 2 minutes for the basic install, and Postfix and Dovecot for the email server. The mail server definitely takes longer to set up but with the detailed, step by step instructions available at the link below it is really easy to do.

  1. You should start selling ready made Raspberry PI email server.
    This way, if someone buy your raspberry PI device they can just plug it in and ready to use their own email server.

  2. very cool thanks for the tips I've been playing with Arduino a bit lately and heard about the Raspberry Pi it looks really cool with Linux
    My networking teacher Dan Alberghetti (he has tons of great YouTube videos on networking) made a web filter for his kids with the Raspberry Pi peace

  3. Would making a raspberry pi cluster increase the amount of performance or traffic a server could handle or would the process of information transfer between the pi's really just be a bottleneck?

  4. "It does not have a monitor output, it has an HDMI output. So unless you have an adapter that you can switch from HDMI to DVI or VGA or something like that, you'll just need to hook it up to a TV." Ummm, most modern monitors have HDMI input, it is not like HDMI is like the old RCA connectors. HDMI is a common standard present on monitors and TVs alike,

  5. Ive been considering doing this and hosting it in a data centre. Some companies are allowing RPi colo with good net allowance (100mb/s for 1tb) for as little as €30 a YEAR. These little things must be a godsend in datacentres since they have such low power and heat requirements

  6. Could this be used "off-grid" in other words have people access it via wifi in a private network and send/receive email within my domain only? No connection to the internet at large? If so would I have to modify any steps or skip any? Just not connect to internet in the end?

  7. There is a big market on fanless x86_64 computers aswell, if you need the horsepower, im into it and shall order a 'Shuttle ds57u3' which is an Intel Core i3. I intend to buy 16gb of ram and a 256gb ssd, i rather overspec it abit and use and abuse it for many years to come..

  8. Hi, thanks a lot for this tutorial,  I send mails perfectly, but with gmail I recive mails in spam folder, who i can fix this? Do I need buy a domain? tnx

  9. The down votes are from people thinking this is a tutorial.
    Then finding out it's just a show and tell.
    And probably the repeating of the same things said over and over again.
    Just my guess.

    It does point out the needless use of big power hungry machines for a simple web page though.
