But why should you need to turn your home computer, your laptop or netbook to a Web Server? What benefits can you have from running a Web Server at home? Just imagine these couple of scenarios. You need certain files (MP3s, MPEGs, .Docs etc.) located in your computer at work or while you are on vacation or wherever you are in the world. Sure, you can download all of them in your USB dongle but, wouldn’t be easier to get them from any computer by simply going online? You wish to share certain pictures of yours with your friends. Sure, you can upload them to free online services such as Flickr but, wouldn’t be easier and safer to have all of them in your computer and let your friends download them wherever they are? In this way you won’t rely on Web services anymore and, just in case something goes wrong and the Web service goes down or its servers stop working, you will be sure to have your most important files…at home, in your computer. Let’s see how easy is to turn your computer to a Web Server in a couple of steps!
