>Is it possible to "own" your own website without needing to "buy" the domain name and pay for server hosting?
>Is there a way to have an "unregistered" website hosted on a home server?
if you have a home server it's not free, you are paying anyway, for:
-hardware cost (including fixing or replacing parts that died)
-heating and air conditioning cost (server cannot work at very low or very high temperatures)
-building cost (need a place to store the server)
but yes, you can have a website on home server if you have IP address without NAT (visible and accessible from outside). if you don't have that, you will have to pay to your ISP to provide you unique IP
you won't have a domain, people will have to visit it by IP address (or .onion address, .onion domains are almost free)
also good luck hosting your website in your home when someone will upload CP on it
>places like godaddy.com (domain name services) charge you money for this (the only reason I can figure out is 1. registering your shit with ICANN, and 2. hosting your stuff)
you can get an .onion domain if you don't want to pay domain niggers. but then nobody will visit your website because nobody uses Tor
