FiOS is the fiber optic network which delivers ultra high speed internet access to homes and businesses. Today we had FiOS installed in the home bundling phone, internet, and HD-television in a single package. The bundled package is affordably priced and reduces our cost for having all the services previously done separately.
I am impressed that FiOS allows us to continue serving our home web server. This was a selling point for me. When I spoke the FiOS representative I explained that I have web applications (I refrained from saying server) that I use in the home that must be accessible on the internet. I indicated that the FiOS plan I needed must allow port 80 incoming. The technician indicated they do not block any ports.
Now I have a dynamic IP which I use my account with dyndns.com to update my server record (DNS A-record) for this blog, and my pauldone.com web server. Sorry, this may sound very geeky, but the projects I work on in my personal time have benefits both professionally and satisfy a hobby.
I am pleased and would recommend this service to anyone where it is available.
