We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers. It's time to build a home server!!!! Originally I was thinking of using AWS or another cloud based service, but I want to start with the basics of hosting and then build up. Now, before I dive in there is a few things I need to cover that I think might be helpful to understand before you take this adventure. This will be a bit cumbersome so feel free to skip it and come back as needed. I wrote this as I was building it so it's more here if you are not sure what something is. Though it doesn't sound complicated upfront, there is a lot that goes into it that we don't see. What's more, there are several types of servers that clients interact with during their time on the Internet; such as, database servers, blade server, cloud server, dedicated server, domain name server, file server, mail server, print server, web server, game server, proxy server, http server, standalone server, local network server, and application server to name a few. The functions that a waiter "server" can provide can be any range of functions "services" that they do or don't specifically perform but have access to, such as requesting a drink from the bar "server", requesting a special order from a chef "server", or requesting a bill from a hostess "server". The same theory translates into a computer server s where you might request an email from a "mail server", a website from an "application server" or "HTTP server" and data for a website from a "database server".
