    I guess, I am into web hosting stuff. So guys, what items do I need to run a web hosting in a cheap price? I want I owned my server.

    What items do I need for my server? How many mbps of internet do I need? I got only 1 mbps at now.

    Depends on your traffic volume. If you want a personal repository for your own use like a personal ftp server or something 1 Mbps and an old cheap computer running in your closet will be enough.
    If you want to run your own site from home with 100's+ visitors per day you need bigger bandwidth and more serious server equipment.
    If you want to offer web hosting services 1Mbps is totally inadequate and you need serious connections and serious gear. Not something you really run out of your bedroom.

    Webhosting is cheap. I pay my webhosting company less per month than the power it would cost me to run my computer for a month.
