I know there're many tools around that can be used to set up our own website/server on our own computer.

What about a domain? Let's say if I don't want to register a domain with anyone. I want to have my own domain (register?) and hosted at my place.

I asked a friend this question and he said I need a nameserver. I searched the net but couldn't find any good answers.

Just wonder if any of you guys know this.

You have to register a domain name one way or the other. Your ISP may block port 80 and you may not be able to host your own site. The registrar provides the name server.

If you do not want to register a domain you can use your IP to access the website. A domain name actually is giving your IP a name so people can easily remember it. There are some free options however, like eu.org

stchatterbox, don't want to put out your fire, but I really think setting up your own nameserver is out of your range right now - many hosting companies and ISPs don't even do it, they buy namespace from elsewhere.

Just register a domain and suck it up - it's really not that bad!
