Welcome aboard naved, this is not a great idea - and your bandwidth provider will, more often than not, suspend your account if you run a web server over bandwidth intended for browsing, etc. (they have hosting services for that. - but some **do** allow you to do this.) But still, it has been discussed many times . . .

Your electric bill will offset any money you would save by not paying a host. Home servers are great though for use as a testing ground and for getting new sites off the ground.

2mbps sounds very low if it is your download speed. Upload speed is what you need to be concerned about and it is usually much slower than the download speeds ISPs like to brag about.
