Is your computer on a cable modem?  or are you a dial up customer?  If your
on a cable modem, it's would be better.  A dial up connection
would be slow, and you would have to stay connected.. and if you get bumped
off, that's down time.  If you have a cable modem, ask your
Service provider for a static IP address.  otherwise, you should host your
page on or something.
