If I disgusted or disappointed with my current web host? Have I switched web hosting companies too many times? Now I decided to host my site my self,can I go for it?
You can be ready to host your own sites. This way of hosting is better than be reliable for any body for the self’s site as well as for better business.
When being our own web host we should be technically inclined and have basic knowledge of operating systems, understand technical terms, understanding how to setup a server environment have basic knowledge of scripting languages and databases.
We should realize the pros & cons. It is one thing to remember that if we want to host our own web server and it is another thing to actually do it.
Mainly this process of hosting site is consist of following steps:
Own sense of responsibility
Awareness level raised
No monthly hosting fees/accounts
Incompetence no longer exist
More pros are:
Unlimited websites, databases, content, storage, etc.
No more waiting on someone else time
At the same time if we consider the cons then it can be:
Exhausting at times
Faced with server/hardware problems
ISP business account
More about these cons are
If server goes down then the website is offline
No technical support team
Software, hardware, and network expenses
Apart of these pros & cons there is also lot of pros & cons but these are much better. Managing a web server starts as a full time job,we must constantly monitor its performance and security.
This can be a hard task, especially if we currently have other responsibilities. Though, the control we will have over our website and its performance is rewarding enough.
