Can I run a webserver from a NAS?

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

My question is hypothetical, I don’t really plan that. Recently I bought a small Synology DS212j NAS for home use. At home I am not on a dynamic IP.

I managed to make web access to the NAS and now can access my home NAS from the Office via a free DDNS service. Works flawless!

I saw the Synology NAS has also a ‘Webserver’ function. Means I could run a webserver from home (I got a 100M line). Sounds too good to be true and I wonder what would be the disadvantages?
