  1. Best answer
    Any computer is sufficient. the problem is firewalls.. what your isp is blocking.. and security so people cant take over your computer.
  2. Easiest thing to do is simply google "How to Create a Web Server". Sound simple enough right? A Home Server doesn't have high requirements, the main thing you have to consider is home much stuff you want to store, and therefore consider your HDD. The other important thing, probably most important, is your Internet uptime. Is your internet laggy? And also make sure you check out your upload speed. If your internet connection is fine, then off you go. Hope this helped, but ask any questions that you might have.
