Home Network and Servers

My home network is always evolving. The goal is to improve the system each time I change something such as make the system load data faster or better data backup. I will post updated information whenever I change something. This website is hosted on the HTTP server installed on Server I. Update: On 22-May-2012, I moved the web hosting to a hosting company. This will improve the loading speed of the site while and will provide more time to write better content. Even though the site is not hosted in home based servers, the system is still in use for testing scripts and programs I write. This page will be a historical archive.
