    It should be possible than, but why use windows 7 instead of webserver 2008 r2 wich is specially designed to be a webhoster?

    You could also get one of the many Linux distros out there pre-configured for all that, since you mentioned already your desire to run Apache and MySQL. Without paying for a static IP address, I find it easier to get around that with Linux, if you haven't thought about that just yet.

    Just buy a Qnap NAS & you are sorted
    Or pay £3.99/month for hosting (ie Newnet.co.uk)
