Listen, I don't want to dissuade you, too much, but if you're a rookie you may be over your head setting your Linux box up as a server. There are many considerations to make with respect to access and security...and more.

How about you host somewhere first, say for a year. Get to know scripts, learn about exploits, security memory and all that. Setup a local web server so you can learn and practice...there are a zillion ways to set up LAMP.
