You can host a website on a home system, if you like. There is a caveat, though. Some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) don't allow their customers to host their own servers, while others will allow you to do so. An ISP that doesn't allow home users to host their own servers may block traffic on the ports commonly used by servers. E.g., it can stop someone ...

You can start out hosting it on your own computer. I started out hosting my first website on my own computer. Now I make my living from websites. But when you do so, be aware: Your home is going to have lousy uptime.

"Two sites in one" is over-the-top for me, I think "transforming", "flexible" or "adapting" pages are what it is all about.

My question is, can I make a site and make it public world wide with following conditions: Instead of hosting website on hosting service provider like Amazon, host it on my own server. No matter bandwidth, no matter performance, no matter uptime. Yes. I don’t want domain name. No matter people access my site using my public ip e.g. ...

I would recommend going with free blogging platforms such as wordpress and blogger. You dont have to worry about hosting nor domain. Also you will find tons of free themes to get your website up and running.
