View Full Version : Computers used specifically for hosting website?

03-14-2011, 08:07 PM
I've started getting close to finishing up my dad's website for his bladesmithing hobby, but I don't have any way of hosting it with full capabilities other than using my own server. Now, I have an old computer, but it sucks, and it could barely run Google Chrome.

I would like to know what is used as an actual webserver. Like, what computers are meant for it?

You DO NOT want to host websites (unless you only want the folks in your house to see them).

There are a lot of good hosting companies out there that will host your site for a few bucks a month. Use one of them.
