Although Apache is nice, and works as it should.. It just doesn't come ready with all of the features that XAMPP does. If by now you do not know what I am talking about, I am talking about using your own computer as your server/webhost. It is VERY simple and easy to setup. Comes with amazing services (like filezilla server, mysql etc. etc).
XAMPP is actually a distro of Apache (very linux like, eh?). It is worth the download. The hardest part of XAMPP is registering a domain name with DYNDNS, and even that isn't hard.

NOTE: If you have a firewall, you have to disable it. You will also have to tweak some router settings if you are behind one.

I am sorry if this came off as an advertisement or spam, but I have spent about half a year looking for a good webhost, and found out about XAMPP.
