Its possible but its not advisable to use the normal ADSL connection (since its dynamic ip) for hosting sites. Unless you want to pull a biz ADSL line to your home (that gives you static ip).

A normal pc can also be a server. Just install a server OS (like windows 2003)? And if you want more stability, get a server motherboard instead of desktop motherboard.

You might also need to place this pc/server in an air con room.

To save all trouble, get your pc/server colocated in a IDC or rent a dedicated server.

yes its possible.. but it is not recommended.. why?

1. Stability
2. Temperature
3. Security
4. Houses on have a Dynamic internet connection.

You should host your server(s) in a data center, it has all the advantages. specially if you're on commercial...

Clients wouldnt want to host on you if they find out that you're having they're servers hosted at your house
