No, I personally not, but I've got only low traffic on my website and 
I've got
my own personal machine 7x24h connected to the internet via ADSL.

If I would have a site which needed much traffic and had to earn money
through it, I would definitely want hosting including a PLT web server. 
I might also have need for tomcat or cocoon things, so I might want a
hetrogenous environment.

I would definitely need DNS, email (through SMTP), and I would want to
be able to SSH/SCP to my site.
