    You have century internet? And are trying to host your own sites? First off I would double check if thats even allowed. Typically ISP's won't allow you to host your own server because of the bandwidth usage, among other things.

    Even if they do allow it, I still wouldn't do it. Without knowing how to run and maintain a server, which I can assume you don't because of the question being asked, then you are in for a surprise. Not to mention the security issues.

    Trust me man. Find a hosting company and pay them to host your site for you.

    If they gave him 5 static IP addresses, they'd have to assume he's doing something a little unusual. Hosting would qualify. I have a static IP through my ISP (not more than one since I never could figure out how to configure 2 of them) and I do some strange non-hosting things that are allowed. He may also be referring to business class vs. residential class internet. You can get away with more with business class.

    Mind you, that's not really what he's asking. What he's asking may be here somewhere:

    I have another question.
    Is it possible to use HTML files to make a app. Like one to make available for people to download.

    As Game has pointed out, you may be fine with hosting and I may have been wrong. If your ISP offers website hosting like that then you may be able to do it without finding a new host. Keep in mind there might still be vulnerability issues as well as maintenance.

    As far as your question about the app and HTML. It depends, you can build web apps that use html/css/js but those are going to feel more like websites than an app.

    If you wanted to build a native app, one that would go into the app store, you need a little more work. It will require you to learn something like Swift for iOS or Java (I think) for Android. I don't know 100% what android uses so don't hold me to that.

    Unfortunately there is another factor to be considered - how trustworthy is your ISP? There are many horror stories people have published about their experiences. If your ISP is trustworthy, they are one of the rare exceptions.

    I would not want to host my sites on any ISP because I would want more control than I would have using an ISP, and I don't want to be subject to any changes they may decide to implement in their services. It is a lot easier to change hosting companies than ISP's.

    CHeck your ISP terms and conditions if they allow hosting your site. But normally, most ISPs don't allow this kind of stuffs. It is better to host your site on web hosting companies. Trust me, you can save money later on.
