Running a site out of home

I don't personally do this, but I've noticed quite a few sites which seem to be run on servers in the owner's home.
Some have more questionable motives than others (some cite security as a reason for not trusting "the cloud"), but it can be useful to get something up quickly and easily.

What do you think of this?

Not good in normal cases. If you want to run it from home, the investment is high. But if some is skillful and paranoid about security issues, it might be the only option as you mentioned.

For someone who has run a server at office, it is not difficult to run at home. If you want to be data center grade you will need to buy some modules which might be costly. But it is quite do-able.

I used to know a few people who used to do it. Some big webmasters use a safe room in their mansion to keep their server. Call it paranoid, but they think it's safe that way. Some even talked about biometric sensors between people and server even when it is in their own home.
