    i want to keep my overhead low so im going to host my site on my machine at home at first...running windows and IIS. is php/mysql easily used for this situation? and can i easily move it to a hosting company in the future?

    what are the advantages of having the site coded in ASP? are hosting costs more expensive for this technology?

    also, i wouldn't trust a site to run off a local machine for anything other than personal testing.
