    This has been a real area of intrigue to me for SEVERAL years. I operated a Linux server with RAID 1 at home for a few years until I realized that for file storage… it might be overkill. But it was awesome. Now I just back things up with externals.

    Still, the server beckons me. I’m considering buying another server and using it to host all the sites I want to build.

    My question is: Has anyone here done this? Is it worth the effort?


    Save yourself the hassle and get a VPS if you want to play around. Hosting from your home, its probably not allowed by your internet provider, many ports are blocked and not to mention speed. I have a home file server running headless version of Ubuntu server that I mannage via SSH. But I wouldn’t bother hosting my website.


    I agree with @AlenAbdula regarding a VPS.
