Hosting at home is not a good choice, having in mind the low upload speed available for most plans (the max you can get is 2Mbps up on TCL). Also you will pay for traffic over your montly limit - and you have no idea how popular this can be.

For about $20/month you can have this hosted on a hosting provider. Check www.iserve.co.nz for example. Or RegisterDirect (affiliate link).

This is pretty much what happens with a hosting provider. Only authorised people can change files. And hosting this at home means that you have to do the administration, security and updates, al yourself. If you have no previous experience, this is not a task you want to perform.
