I host my hobby sites at home.
Connection: Qwest DSL (1.5M down/1M up)
ISP: Arosnet - 8 Static IPs
Mail: Primary MX at home
Secondary MX hosted by Arosnet
DNS: Primary at home
Slaves at Arosnet
This setup gives me maximum control while maintaining decent backup for
mail. However this setup is prone to outages for www cause I am
constantly screwing it up. :) But that is why it is a "hobby" site.
