is it possible to have 1 server (probably at your backyard or basement) and that would provide your website to whole world. . . i cannot afford to have servers on another country, and can somebody also reccomend a good server with at least 8gb ram. more man 4gb/s speed and storage of at least 500gb. . .
and how much will this whole cost me,.
if you have books on this topic pls include . i am just new to this server management and programming world, (you might have figured it out, i donot have money to pay for my college)
thankyou

What are you trying to do exactly? Can you use a free or distributed hosting solution instead? Where are these numbers you have coming from?

Every piece of hardware can be turned into a server. As long as the machine has RAM, CPU and hard disk, you're good to go. That means that you can turn an old laptop into an okay-ish server.

I did the same thing from scratch and without knowledge last year with my old college laptop from 2005 and it went OK. It is REALLY confusing at first, but as long as you can google while doing things, you can do anything.


Get your hands on a piece of hardware.

Install a free OS (server edition). Example : ubuntu server (it has flaws but the community is large so finding answers for random errors is easy). it comes with prepackaged services and software to get your site going almost out of the box.

Secure it with firewall (ie UFW) and fail2ban

Get a domain name (a few bucks a year)

Configure your Apache, nginx or whatever

Get your site going. It should sustain a few dozen/hundreds simultaneous visitors with a crap hardware. It depends on your site (how heavy the content is, how fancy it is).

When you're set and confident (it was a matter of a 2 months working on the server a few hours a week, no prior knowledge about anything) you can do the same thing on a private virtual server, which costs a few bucks a month but gives you access to almost 100% uptime and okay hardware.
