I have been thinking about creating a small home business lately and was considering setting up a website of some sort. Looking around the internet has left me confused because of the choice of different software and methods used to do this. I would prefer to host the site on my own computer rather than a "free" hosting company. with a view to paid hosting if things go well. I am aware of windows internet information services, apache,windows server 2008 and linux versions, but am unsure if which is the correct/popular application to use? Which server and website content creation software I should use/ begin with please?
