Question by AT: Setting up webserver to host personal web pages using DSL from verizon?
Verizon does not appear to allow to do it unless you become a business account (more $ $ ) . Has anyone set up a web server (apache) and have it accesible via http from outside? Any workarounds? they say it is possible only with static ip address. which you can get if you pay them large amt. The dynamic address of the router is not accessible or even pingable from outside with a consumer account.

Verison (or any other company) does not publish their internal addresses on the internet. The only way to have a web server on the internet is to have an public address mapped back to your server. So ISPs do provide space on a web server for their customers, verison is 10MB of space. Very limited. You could look into an web hosting company and see if it’s cheaper.
