Web development is one thing; running and securing a web server is another.

If you want to run a web server and understand how you can lock it down, instead of hosting it at a service provider, maybe the following links can point you in the right direction. Be prepared for getting some unwanted attention, and spending some time to deal with it.

If you want to just run a web server that you and a few people known to you wants to access, you can use a port other than port 80. Also make sure that only the web server port remains accessible from the Internet.

Go through the web server logs regularly. A hardware firewall may be good to have, but not essential. After all, if you have problems that take up too much of your time, you can just block the port, take down the webserver, and host it on a hosting service. It might also be a good idea to capture incoming packets (you won't have too many) using Wireshark so that you understand what kind of traffic your webserver attracts.

If you have the time, I will recommend that you do this. It will enhance your skills for sure. But, if you are interested in just getting a web presence and not in understanding how to run an Internet facing server, you better use a hosting service.

IIS or Apache -- the issues are the same. Your windows background makes IIS ideal. Checkout Ruby on Rails also. http://www.rubyonrails.org/. Paul Watson is the resident expert on this subject.
