I used to have an old laptop in my father's basement that I used as a webserver. One day lightning struck and the network card in it got fucked.

Tell me, OP, does lightning strike the rented servers?

Most of the time renting is more cost and time efficient, plus you have access to an high speed connection which isn't always possible at your home.

I'm paying $20 a month for a cheap dedicated server, just to dick around with and host some shit. Just did the math, and running something similar in my basement would be $200 + $30 per month minimum, if I don't go all out with hard drives and RAM.

It's pretty fun just to have a server somewhere for playing with new technologies and shit.
