Yes like others have said be sure that your isp allows webservers and port 80 to be open.
My isp will allow it because I got a newsletter with my phone bill stating that we could host web servers on our dsl connection if we wanted to.
I gave it some thought myself and was gonna host my blog at home. But decided against it as I'm sure the site would load slow and go down too many times. Plus I wouldn't be able to be by the server 24/7.
Web hosting is so cheap that you'd be crazy hosting your site at home. lol
Well I know I'd be crazy trying to host my site myself. xd
