Chapter 40. Running Your Own Web Server > Are You Ready to Serve?

Are You Ready to Serve?

You may even have put two and two together and begun to wonder why you need a Web hosting service for your Web pages—after all, if your computer is connected to the Internet, why can’t it serve as your own personal Web server?

This is an especially interesting question if you have a broadband Internet connection that is always “on;” if your computer is persistently connected, it can always be available to other users who want to visit your Web site.
