Home based hosting seems to be cheeper but most providers will not allow you to run a server. ComCast requires that you upgrade to Business service. Just Internet starts at $59.00 per month here and you have to provide the server hardware.
You also have to provide the maintenance yourself as well as footing the bill for replacing broken parts. Also needed is a reliable Uninterruptable Power Supply for those times you lose house power.
In my opinion, any Run BASIC Hosting package would be cheeper than a home server!
My cable provider only charges about $35.00 per month for cable based Internet. I am able to host a web site no problem. A low volume site at least. My problem comes from signing up with companies like Google for the Adsense program. Because of how my site is configured they will not allow me to join the program. Since I can't host my own name servers I have to do a forwarding of my web address to my IP address. It seems that Google does not like this. There may be other issues that arise from hosting your own site at home, but it's not very hard to do and in the long run will save you money.
