Web Hosting Questions

in General Discussion edited January 2014
I have a couple of questions about hosting sites on a mac. I would say that they are stupid questions, but my kindergarten teacher said that the only stupid question is a question that isn't asked.

First of all. When I install OS 9 (i don't use X yet), I get this real nifty folder called Web Pages. From what I gather, it is relatively simple to host a site on your computer using this nifty folder. So my questions are these:
  • If it is so simple to do with this folder, what is the point of offering OS X Server?

  • I have a 233MHz G3. Could this machine host a site? It barely keeps up with me in other applications.

  • If I do host a site on this machine, could I use it also for my normal work, or would there be a perfomance hit?

  • If anyone has any experience with Macromedia Shockwave Multiuser Server, could you speak up? I have some questions about that too...

Thanks in advance for your help.
