I would start out with some old computer from the closet because it wont 
handle your needs anymore. It takes far less computer to serve files 
across a net than it takes to create or view those same files. In fact, a 
tossed-in-the-closet computer can easily handle all of the ISP needs for 
hundreds of users. Unlimited email addresses, no size limit on emails, 
unlimited web space, for all your family and friends.

Ive run internet servers for decades and I run two from my house now.
Here is an article on this.

So I would recommend starting out with something in the closet then moving 
up as you see a definite need.
