If youre running your local server on a Windows PC there really isn't a lot of use for a control panel. Most of the server environments come with their own point and click application to start/stop services and carry out any configuration.
On a Linux system a control panel can indeed make your life a lot easier. Webmin is a great tool and best of all its free.

Beware of your ISP's usage policy. Most of them specifically disallow you from hosting **anything** over a connection meant for Internet access.
Also it is likely not to be an optimum solution in terms of reliability and speed, unless you dedicate the computer to being a server only.
