Hosting on your own have some advantages. You don't really need some skills & it pays over time (2-3 years). About a decade ago I was experimenting with XAMPP & WAMP for my set up & even with a much more powerful machine it's extremely hard to maintain better uptimes on home build Windows set up. Nowadays everythings plugnplay & simplified. A cheap NAS device connected to a router over a web interface can do a lot of things.

Good thing I refused to listen to this so called "experts" BS telling me to go instead with this so called "real hosting" subscription. You can host FPS game servers at home & stream videos on WAN from a DiskStation at home but your web hosting is not real hosting. Seriously??? As if this real hosting has huge pipelines & load balancing sh__. This so called real hosting is running on a shared bandwidth with so many websites on a virtual host. Paying $5 is not real hosting.

I'm of the opinion if you need to ask here, you haven't done your homework, there's plenty of information available out there. Your topic subject will reveal many hits on the subject.

That's not the whole point, I also have 100Mb/s but my provider doesn't allow me to run a webserver on that account.
