    Sometimes it feels like a real challenge finding a hosting that suits our needs. One possible solution is to build one of our own, although it is definitely a waste if we only use it for our own projects. Running it as a business is a whole new level, though. What are the biggest challenges of building our own hosting?

    I have heard people say that web hosting is already a saturated field though who am I to discourage you from starting one? As you've rightly mentioned, it may be of use to look at the scope of the web hosting.

    Are you talking about building a server after getting a barebones one from a hosting company, or setting up your own physical server in a house or something? That's a lot of work, with all the patching and security and other things.

    It isn't an easy thing to even consider venturing into. I have always assumed that this is something that may interest a web developer or someone who's into web development in general.
