Should I use Online server hosting or create my own server?

I originally tried making a stake pool using amazon web services and had some issues while trying to run my node on testnet, I’m willing to try again however instead of using online server hosting is there a way too create my own server? Do all large stake pools also use services such as AWS or digital ocean?

Some of them yes, some of them not; it’s up to you what services do u want to use

I started with VPS servers and after some profit I moved the Producer at home

Is their any guides leading too where to start making a server at home? The reason I want to make a server at home is because a VPS seems costly however maybe that isn’t the case?
