i'm going with my own webserver because i see myself hosting a number of
sites all with a variety of php/mysql requirements.  i want to be able to
configure them as i like and use whatever versions i choose at will
without limitation from a host provider. including space/performance.  i
figure the flexibility and ability to manage it how i want is worth the
price differential. although something tells me that it actually will cost
less in the long run as the number of sites increases..
