Can someone explain to me the pros and cons on Hosting your own site vs. paying someone to host the site for you? (Very Important... I work with a company thats hosting their own site, but it seems to be a pain, plus we can't get statistics on traffic to the site and so on) Any information will be greatly Appreciated!!! THX:confused:
you can easily host your website just go to www.webguru.com

You can go to hostmonster's home page to get more information. I bought the hosting and build my own website MiniFlashBox last year, it has been working well.

I've hosted my own websites using XAMPP and just my plain ol' PC. Works great if you're technical and know what you're doing.
As for web statistics, that's easy to get really. All you have to do is create your own script using any server-side programming language, I recommend PHP because XAMPP has it built in and it's easy to learn (IMO).
I registered a domain name and I want to setup a basic hosting account. What are the differences between Linux web hosting and Windows web hosting?
It really depends on what you are most comfortable with. If you're tech savvy enough to be dangerous, but not a coding wiz, I'd choose a hosting company. The pros of going with a company is that if there ever is an emergency or you need technical support, you've got it. :)
The pros to hosting your own is really customization. You can tailor it to be whatever you need/want/like. Although these days most hosting companies offer those options as well. I'd say, assess your comfort level, do a little research, and go with what works best for you.

I found this on Wikipedia.
Dedicated hosting service:
The user gets his or her own Web server and gains full control over it (root access for Linux/administrator access for Windows); however, the user typically does not own the server. Another type of Dedicated hosting is Self-Managed or Unmanaged. This is usually the least expensive for Dedicated plans. The user has full administrative access to the box, which means the client is responsible for the security and maintenance of his own dedicated box.
Managed hosting service:
The user gets his or her own Web server but is not allowed full control over it (root access for Linux/administrator access for Windows); however, they are allowed to manage their data via FTP or other remote management tools. The user is disallowed full control so that the provider can guarantee quality of service by not allowing the user to modify the server or potentially create configuration problems. The user typically does not own the server. The server is leased to the client.
Web hosting is often provided as part of a general Internet access plan; there are many free and paid providers offering these services.
A customer needs to evaluate the requirements of the application to choose what kind of hosting to use. Such considerations include database server software, scripting software, and operating system. Most hosting providers provide Linux-based web hosting which offers a wide range of different software. A typical configuration for a Linux server is the LAMP platform: Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP/Perl/Python. The webhosting client may want to have other services, such as email for their business domain, databases or multi-media services for streaming media. A customer may also choose Windows as the hosting platform. The customer still can choose from PHP, Perl, and Python but may also use ASP .Net or Classic ASP. Web hosting packages often include a Web Content Management System, so the end-user doesn't have to worry about the more technical aspects.
