I was just wondering if there are any pros and cons hosting a website from your IP using appserver?

You need a dedicated connection to an ISP (internet service provider).
Not all ISP's allow that, unless you pay for it. By dedicated, I mean you
have a "static" IP, not the typical "dynamic" IP that is normally used.
You are in control of your own server, your own security, and are able to
connect your websites to physical things, like external hardware in your
house or business. It's a great learning experience, and I suppose it's fun
to do (although I've never tried it).

You are in control of your own server, your own security,
I would consider that also a con. It means you have to keep the machine up to date with security fixes and if something breaks you have to fix it.
