if so, cliffs?
yes, but you will need 2 ips for nameservers.
or dynamic dns...
I was told I could do it through freedns but how
all I'd like to do for now anyways is host some family history charts, docs, etc
I use www.dyndns.org . You need to download an update client that updates the DNS entry anytime your external IP changes. Some routers have an update client built in, like my Linksys with it's DD-WRT firmware. Another popular one is www.no-ip.com
you can if your ISP isn't a bitch... I used to using dyndns but now for some reason no one can access it but me, called ISP, sure enough they have some method of preventing you from doing it.
How do I know if they allow it, just call them? Also, are there any good places to read up on this or that have tutorials or something
I need some brotorials
no ISP wants you running a webserver from your home...doesn't mean it can't happen...
I ran a webserver from my home for about two years (until the box died) using yahoo (now att) and comcast. It was just a computer w/ WAMP installed, ports forwarded (esp port 80), and dyndns. Pretty simple.
You will need a web server program:
