[General Inquiry - Not Urgent] Nova Website Hosting on OSX

Good Day,

I am just curious to know if anyone hosts their websites via their own OSX Server? I have an iMac, fairly new, that gets little use and was considering adding OSX Server to it. However, the only use I'd really have is for the wiki and hosting my 2 or 3 very tiny Nova based games. OSX Server is only $19.99 so that is not an issue for me.

What are the gotchas, if anyone knows? Any advice, input, etc. also welcome.

Best Regards and Much Thanks

Shouldn't be any issues since it's a Unix-based system which is what a lot of hosting companies use.

I might give it a try and post my results. Will be awhile, because I'll have to sort which Mac to use.

Any recommendations on storage and speed should I decide to go with a new mac mini to run as the server?

Thanks Again!

Any of the new Mac minis should be fine. You really don't need a ton to run a server. A solid state drive would be nice, but certainly not mandatory. Just make sure you've got a good amount of RAM.
