Has anyone ever thought about having their own server? From what I know about servers, you'd be able to host your own website and not have to worry about size (as long as the server is big enough). Could somebody psl. clue me in on what I'd be able to do if I had my own server?

Host your site yes, but you gotta buy the domain name. Keep in mind that servers are a lot of money, if you want one big enough for a decent sized site.

A server is just a computer. If you have a static IP you can run your own computer as server. It just has to be online all the time. That 24/7 line is what makes it expensive.
