I have some ideas for websites, but I don't know if I'm way over my head or not. I find that using HTML and JAVA is fairly easy, but I've only really used them within the confines of educational platforms like codeacademy. I'm ignorant in the actual logistics of putting up websites. I feel stupid asking these questions, but here it goes. If I were to install the WAMP software, and host a website, would the website only be up when my computer is running? Would it be wise to use a second computer simply for running the server if I wanted it to be up full time? Does hosting a website bog down a router and make my data usage go way up? Should I make sure I have unlimited data and a really good router? If I have a website up, and I start to get lots of traffic, does monetizing them with ads really generate much cash? Could I see myself making a substantial amount of money by building up websites and selling them? (All this assuming of course that I had enough experience down the road to make decent stuff.) This is just a hobby for me. I'm not really that interested in just getting a job coding. But if I could pay rent by doing this, or just pay for steam games and the occasional vacation that would be pretty sweet.
