Python Django Web app

Hey everyone,

I'm learning to make a web app with python and django so I can make a web page for my brothers new business. Found a good book that takes me through this styling it and all, however, I'm thinking of hosting it locally on a server as the clientèle will only be in 200km radius of where he lives. Seems stupid to have a heruko account for that and just run it locally.

So I'm thinking hardware and software. I could run it off a Rashperry pi but not sure of software. The webpage will need to have a contact message that can be sent my bro via email (probably easiest) in case they don't want to call via mobile. Eventually maybe text to mobile, but I'm sure I could achieve this with just email to begin with. The business will be mowing and landscaping and it's just going to be him and his wife to start off.

Anyway, any ideas on hardware and software would be appreciated and whether or not I should just run the webpage off heruko or some variation?

Cheers tc
