Which one do you prefer, Hosting your website from a computer at home or paying $5 month for a hosting service? I prefer the pay method just because I never handle the technical stuff. what about you?
If I had the techniqual knowledge, I would love setting up my own servers (I could have complete power over my site). Unfortunately, I don't so I guess I'll go with number 2. :P
Oh and btw, I added you on Twitter.
Personally I'm happy just to pay for my hosting. My sites are still pretty small so it doesn't cost me that much, and it also means that I don't have to deal with all the technical stuff (which I can't do) everytime some tiny little thing goes wrong.
That said, if I had the tecnical knowledge, I would love to get my own server so that I could start a hosting company :P
Paid hosting rocks, unless you have over 100 sites I guess.
