I am going to be hosting my own website as soon as I can get a domain name picked out and purchased. I have the box setup to run the site, but I want it to be secure. I am running an apache server with nod32 business version 3 something, is that enough?

With what little information you have given about your setup, no.

Well, it's not really set up now. What information do you need to know? Please excuse my ignorance as this is my first attempt at hosting any web site. I have been reading online guides about how to get it running and as of now I installed phpdev and nod32 on the computer I want to host the pages on. The only kind of files I need to host are html, php, and css. Thanks for taking a look.

Have you thought about purchasing web hosting. It may not be a bad Idea, you do not have to foot the electricity bill, you don't have to worry about temperature control. It can be cheaper depending on what you are hosting. You probably have better uptime, data center connection, and they handle the security for you.

I have been doing freelance web design for years and have hosted with many companies. I even offer my own hosting, so if you have any questions feel free to pm me.

Just let me know what you are trying to accomplish I can recommend a few host. In the past web hosting used to be expensive, but its come down in price now, primarily because computers and storage has come down in price.
