You will need to get a static IP address incase you ever switch off your PC, this link should help you there http://www.noip.com.

If you go to the Apache website (http://www.apache.org/) it will be able to explain how to configure your PC for apache.

Well, the first thing you need to do is contact your ISP for approval. Either read your TOS (Terms Of Service) agreement, or contact them directly.

If they don't mind, then you may use a dynamic DNS provider, such as myserver.org, to assign a domain name to your dynamically assigned IP, provided by your ISP.

Configure Apache as described in the online documentation, and away you go.

Cheers.

If your ISP doesn't allow you to host your own... Switch to a better ISP.

Well I live in the midwest of the USA.

Charter does not allow it. They block inbound on port 80. You could get around this using the port switching feature of no-ip.com but you would still be breaking Charter's TOS.

CenturyTel does allow it.

Anyone else want to let us know if your ISP allows home hosting?

It seems to me that it is generally the cable modem companies that have issues with home users hosting on their own. Not quite sure why... Any ideas?
