Host your website from home – 2014

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

At first sorry to bring this topic into question. This topic was discussed in 2010, 2011 and 2012, many technology and ISP changes over the year, which bring us at year 2014.

I think we should take our time and rethink about this – before making comments and jumps to conclusion please kindly hear me out.

Current ISP running:
35mbps upload and 101mbps download speed
Port 25 and 80 open
Dedicated ip given
Home server allowed.

My argument:
Nothing is safe online.. (unmanaged Vps for example). Internet is crazy no matter how secure you are, there still open loop holes. There is always risk no matter where you host.

Own host vs Internet host:
When I use my own server I can do anything I like vs hosting with other has limitation..(they can ban or kick you out anytime)

My question:
Keep in mind hardware are one time buy) and I’m not concern about electricty bill. I’m talking about control and reliability.(I do not have problem shutting it down or turn it on 24/7)

How good is 35mbps for hosting a database based website?
How much traffic Will it be able to handle (site based on images, texts, google map and YouTube embedded video)

If your answer yes do it .. Please tell my why should I do it with details.
If your answer is no don’t do it… Please explain with detail why not.

P.s: I do understand we can do anything we want to do… But I am looking for a long term solution with benefits.

Thank you guys in advance!
