I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, to get an internet connection you will need to sign up with an ISP. If however you want your ftp/web server to be fast you will want something like ADSL or Cable. As far as software you have lots of options. Maxum's Rumpus is a favourite FTP server. WebStar will do both WWW and FTP. Both of those can be found by doing a search for "server" on www.versiontracker.com
