I have attempted on more than one occasion to setup a personal webserver from home so I can have access to my music collection wherever I have internet access. However, I have run into issues with hard drive failures and whatnot that I am just not capable of managing on my own (I’m a web developer, not much of an administrator).
I was wondering about the feasibility of having a password-protected website through DreamHost that houses large amounts of data, such as audio files (legal audio files that I personally rip from my CD collection) that can be streamed to my phone or something.
I have reviewed the Acceptable Use Policy, and while it states that personal data backup is prohibited, it does sound like as long as the files are serving a purpose for a website that it is okay.
I wasn’t sure where to go or who to turn to, so I’m posting here in hopes of getting some direction on what it would take to do something of this nature and whether or not it is even allowed.
Thank you for your time,
