Basically you need to have high upload speed like say more then 2 Mbps and you must buy a static ip and then you can host it

upload speed is more important that download speed because your website visitors download your site .. and that is uploading for you

A few years back I ran IRC hosting from home on my server. It worked well besides the shared IP + ports.. If you really want to do it from home, go for it. You just have to charge less than normal

I ran some websites from home in the past, and it went rather well (for a while). My ISP has a home office deal that isn't much more than standard internet, but you have to sign a contract. The bonus is the static IP and 24 hour customer service. In the end, I found it was just too much headache, and not really cost effective. I would say that it's not a terrible option for new or small websites, but it's tricky.

I've attempted this, it was really good for when I was developing the product, but after the development was finished, I had to move to a server in a datacenter as my home server just wasn't cutting it.

You can always use something dynaip or whatever if you don't have a static ip.

I wouldn't host anybody elses websites from my own house, but I don't have problems hosting blogs for family and friends off an old Linux box I have sitting in the closet.

You can work around the static IP problem by configuring some sort of dynamic DNS system hehe.

I'd rather invest $ to quality server than hosting some low quality home servers.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I have to think running any type of "server" would be in violation of the ISP's TOS; at least that's the case with residential RoadRunner accounts. Are there ISP's that don't care if servers are run on home accounts?

i set up a sever as an experiment one time went well until i tried to access it from the outside and found my host to be blocking port 80. Learnt a heap more about linux and how everything works definitely advisable if you run a hosting business.

If they really cared they would block port 80 and allot do for that very reason. I have contacted a few smaller ISPs and asked them and the response is normally i don't see why not . The bigger ones point you in the direction of business plans costing twice as much.

Many guys/gals have operated servers from home. But one of the things to check is the ISP TOS Check their terms; most ISPs say no servers on home IPs (unless you pay more - sometimes known as commercial accounts).

Like others have mentioned, the lack of static IP's can be coped with by using dynip or dyndns.org. I'd recommend dyndns simply because they have an dynamic IP updating client, which can be supported by windows and linux OS. If you however have static IP's, you can also consider using DNS services like afraid.org, that is if you don't like running a DNS server at home ofcourse. I also don't recommend running a website from a home server because of the need ofhigh upload speed, but if you are building it for learning about web hosting I'd go for it.
