    Hosting (From Home) for Fun and Profit: Prerequisites, Hardware, and Network - Prerequisites

    (Page 2 of 6 )

    Some examples of things you will probably need to consider before running a server:

    1. Computer to act as the server
    2. Broadband connection
    3. Hardware NAT router with firewall
    4. Domain name(s)
    5. Your WAN IP address

    Each one of these will be addressed in more detail in later sections in terms of what each can be used for.

    The most important aspect of setting up a server is planning and thinking ahead. The type of hardware you will need will be determined by what sorts of webpages you will be hosting and what other kinds of tasks your server will do (FTP, email, telnet, etc.), so it is therefore very important to think about what your server will do before you start setting it up.

    Because people generally want to minimize downtime when working with servers, any large changes you may make (both hardware and software) after your server is up and running will most likely cause serious downtime, so any of these large changes you can avoid by anticipating them during original set-up is a good thing. I will cover in the rest of this article some of the specific things you should think about and decide before and during setting up your server.
