I wouldn't recommend this at all .. you need to have security & protection in place to act as a host, much more than your regular pc can afford.
If you want a website, there are plenty of free options out there. Leave hosting to the experts.

Your ISP would probably be contacting you shortly if you did that. Many ISPs will allow you to have a personal page that THEY host, but that's it. Some ISPs will allow it, but under a different type of plan than you would have for your own use. From your question I would suggest that you would be far better off to pay the $10 a month to have professional setup and management of your hosting.

Also, your site would be so slow even with just a couple of visitors at one time. Most ISPs have different upload / download speeds - usually faster on the download. This means your site is "uploading" slower to your visitor/s computer/s. It will NOT be a good experience for the user and will have a lasting negative impact on your site.
There are hosting plans out there for under $4 / month - I know, since 2003 I have owned a hosting business (and am slowly phasing out of it and not looking for new customers).
Do yourself and your visitors a favor - spend a couple of bucks.

In addition to all of the above, what happens when YOUR power goes out or your connection goes down or the cats or the kids turn off the computer accidentally? I know many of us that have an "extra" computer laying around that *could* use it as a server, but it is really a very bad idea.Deborah Carney
