    you would need a high speed connection with good upstream t1 is pretty slow by todays standards. you would also need a computer running iis or apache. you could run a simple web server off of a dsl or cable modem, but it wouldn't be fast enough for anyone other than a 56ker to be impressed.

    im looking for something a little bigger than this. web-hosting, ftp (server at home) something higher than t1 (t3?) fiber optic seems out of price range.
    more specifically, do i just need a high speed connection to a DNS? pay for dns service, buy domain name, and have my server here? could i use this as my regular connection as well? or would i not be able to access the internet thru this?

    i dont uderstand who the bandwidth runs thru on this type of system... i cant imagine all of the load connecting thru the DNS, so where would i connect my high speed connection? to a NAP? a backbone?

    well, if you're honestly planning on running a hosting service you're going to need ds3/oc3 lines.

    these run $2000+ per month. there are several companies that rent out ds3/oc-x lines. do a search online. this runs a dedicated line to your house, you get one or more IP's. you register with a domain name service, their dns servers allow for the propogation of your dns entry to other isp's. you can setup whatever you want on your end of the connection. its a real internet connection so when configured with a router properly, you can use it for a regular internet connection.

    I would not jump into this.... I run a server from my house and it's not noticible that it's slower. I say set up a server with what ever computer you have now on whatever line you have now(check you tos to make sure you're not banned from running a server). If you can figure it out, setup multiple pages, multiple user interfaces, etc, THEN think about what you'd need to actually be payed to do it.

    this answers my questions sufficiently... i am not going to do this in the near future, just curious about options. (figured on OC being cost-prohibitive)
