    Hi
    when you want to do a DEDICATED SERVER WEB HOSTING on your computer you have to know that's an unsecure way to take your website online.

    first:
    you must choose an appropriate Apache server, that server will execute the PHP's Script an make the HTML page after send to client.
    be sure to do daily or weekly update.

    Second:
    Install a freewell software to block other port than 80. it coud be the best way to secure your server.

    Third:
    -In other hand, the OS that you will use, must have no craching default, Windows Server 2008 ( i think the best ).
    -when yo want to use Lunix...lunix is the faster and present a less craching rate.
    -Free BSD: no knowlodge.

    Finnaly, RedHat Lunix is the best and secure OS for doing his Host at home. :)

    Linux.it's an open source system and is therefore more cost-effective to operate and maintain than Windows, Linux runs most processes faster than Windows. Linux web hosting is considered to be more secure than windows and it is an open source system and it is more stable and reliable.
