it is more expensive and provides more resources than you need at the stage of development of your project.
I see several hosting providers mentioned on the forum including some who are members here. You should be able to find hosting for ten dollars or less per month. If your site grows and you need to upgrade to a more expensive and powerful server later the upgrade can be accomplished when needed.
Actually I already have hosting (Darn good hosting too, for only $4 per month), I was just seeing if you could somehow do it from home for free or something.
(I have a few spare computers at home that arenít used as often, thinking maybe I could turn them into server support or something when I needed it.)
BTW, my current web host I use is Total Choice Hosting
