Web Hosting

I want to host my own web site on a computer at home. Bandwidth and volume of traffic is not an issue as the site is not designed as anything but a point of reference for my work. At the moment I have site hosting and forwarding by Netscalibur, my ISP (excellent) I have BBand, anything I need to have and anything I need to know ?
