Looking to host a professional website from my own network, have a few questions. | Forum

I am creating a small website for my business. It will have very low traffic (likely <100 visits per month), I will probably like to build it with Wordpress or something similar with moving to html/css/js later down the road. It really just is a page displaying content about my business. Nothing fancy.

1). Should I host my website within a VM (on my local pc) or is there really no point / no security risk? Assuming that I only allow http(s) connections, there isn't much room for security concerns right?

2). What software do yall recommend for hosting? Reading the guides on this sub, I can't really decide between them professional surgical websites, nothing stands out. I'm leaning towards apache because there seems to be quite a few YouTube guides for it and seems well documented.

3). Is there anything I should know before getting into this? I'm working as a sysadmin so if theres anything technical I should know, or certain software that is common in production, anything is helpful!
