I've been doing some research all week and due to my current web hosting place and my limited funds I am looking to hosting sites on my own internet, i have a static ip, and i'm free to do whatever since I upgraded my account with my ISP.

Is it possibly to host web sites with regular ubuntu or would I need to use ubuntu-server? I am a GUI addict.

Also the machine I am using is behind a router, I have the ports 21, 80, 443 forwarded will this be a problem?

Regular Ubuntu would be fine. I have a "mixed use" box like this at home.

Ubuntu Server is just a cut down version of Ubuntu that uses less resources.

Forwarded to *your* machine, or to somewhere else?
