How can I create a web host, such as the ones ending in .com or .org?
To have a .com or .org means you have to get a domain name. To get a domain name, such as example.com, you have to buy one from an internet registrar such. Then, once you have that domain name, you can point it to a web hosting server at your house or buy web hosting from an online host.
Will it work on Windows XP?
Yes, it will work on Windows XP and on other versions, you just have install Apache server software.
Do I need a router to make a web host in my home?
Yes, you need a router. Without a router you can't do anything on the internet.
What will happen if I made my laptop to a web server while using it daily?
You can make your laptop a web server, but it is not recommended as a server takes too much memory to run its functionality. It will make your laptop slow.
Is it okay if I have Ethernet without a router?
I believe it's even better, because routers act like an extra device between your computer and the internet. So if you have a router, you'd have to do port redirects from the routers settings, while being directly connected to your internet service providers network means you have direct connection to your ports.
