webmasta?

what I want to know is; it cheeper to buy web
hosting or to host the site on my server? I have
cable and have to ask my isp as well. I don't
expect more than 20-30 hits a day. it's for a
small fishing club of 20-30 members to post and
link to other sites.

Just FYI, most ISPs have a clause in your contract specifically forbidding hosting a server on your home connection.

Unless you have a static IP you might run into a problem as well. Web hosting is cheap these days though. I'd talk to an admin about it, they might be able to help.

This is EV1. It's where we bought AOA's servers. They offer a wide verity of hosting options. We have found then extreamly reliable.

You can get hosting starting at $10.00 a month.

Not sure how things work there, but here your ISP usually allocate you a small amount of webspace for hositing a site, so long as its non-commercial. You should be able to set up a site that way and its "free"/included in your ISP package.

Try uggle.co.uk, great packages which is where my website is hosted. Very fast servers and extremely cheap, hosted on windows 2003 servers and i've had 99.9% uptime, only had that 0.01% downtime because of an error made during a hardware upgrade they made to their servers. But still incredibly good.
