    Your 2mbps line has a fixed IP ? If you have over 100 members online all the time I wouldn't consider hosting your web site at home! If it's growing, think of a serious web hosting solution or think about renting a dedicated server but the hosted at home solution is probably not a good one. Just my opinion.

    In general, home connections have a great download but a poor - mediocre upload speed and when you are acting as a server, the upload speed is what matters, not to mention the fact that the provider generally prohibits you from running services from home.

    Redundacy is another concern, and with 100's of users on at once, you're ISP is bound to notice (it's most likely against their TOS to act as a 'public internet server').

    Hostingat home never seems to be the good idea mainly because of the speeds. I host my own site at my house well its only one of them that i do and i just use it for my self to send files arounf when i go to like school or friends places so thats realy about the only thing in my opiion that i would host off of a home server!

    Running it from home is really extremely unreliable for a popular or business website. If you really care about the site you would pay money for hosting. Taking the cheap way out will lead to more problems down the line.

    I don't think I've found an ISP around my area that allows for hosting of servers.

    I have FIOS from verizon and it is against TOS to do so.

    Best of luck! Home of Generous George the Red Monster.
