But home Internet is asymmetrical. Getting in the way of me hosting my own site is:

  1. ISPs give poor upload speeds.
  2. I would need an always on, home computer to serve my pages.
  3. How to handle traffic surges?

Hosting from your home/server is kind of an ultimate self-dependency strategy but what we're talking about here is more about 'host anywhere' but maintain a higher level of control and alignment of interests with the hosting/service provider.
