Web servers

Plusnet doesn't permit the running of my own web server under the terms and conditions of my ADSL connection. Is there a way of doing it within the rules? I have an Apple mac system with Apache web server built in. I don't want to use it for general use but for family friends to access via the internet and also as a learning aid.
It'd be a shame if I couldn't use all that awsome power just sitting there Cry

Hi,

Can you confirm which area of our Terms and Conditions you're referring to? We do allow the running of servers on your connection as long as they are properly secured.


Kind Regards,
Rob

RE: Web servers

Hi Rob,
Maybe it's just mis-interpretation on my part but here's the link

But it'd be great if that was the case, cheers.

P.S. it looks lonely on the plusnet webcams today, are you on your own?!

RE: Web servers

I think he refers to this:
"The use of the service to run open servers,.. PlusNet define an open server being one which can be connected to over the Internet by hosts not in a trusted list."

I took this to mean ANY server which the public can access, ie a web server. Am I wrong? because I would like to run my website on my own server.

Hi,

I can confirm that running a web server is allowed, although if you plan to run a popular website then ADSL is not an ideal hosting solution.
