Old mobile phones, are they useless? Definitely not. Most of my articles are based on the diy projects in which I encourage everyone to utilise their old devices. This helps us to save our hard earned money and also protect our planet. Reusing old devices can help us in a very good manner. If you want other uses of your old devices you can also visit my YouTube Channel which can be found here. There I described many ways to reuse your old devices. 
In this tutorial, each and every step will be explained at beginners level. We can use any old Android based mobile phone to convert it to website server. It is to be noted that the website can only be used at personal level and not professionally as the mobile device cannot handle much traffic and also there is  not much security for the website. The process is very simple and beginner friendly. Little knowledge about the mobile devices is sufficient to perform this tutorial. Before proceeding with the tutorial I want to mention few points:
A.) Your mobile device must be charged and should running at least Android 5.0 or newer.
B.) Rooting of mobile phone is not required to complete this process.
C.) The device should be connected to the internet 24x7 using wifi network or data connection.
Let's begin the process.
1. Definitely, your old Android based mobile phone.
2. Simple Http server app which can be downloaded from the Google Playstore from here.
3. A working internet connection.
4. Pagekite app which can be downloaded from here.
5. An account on pagekite website.
Follow below steps to make our tiny website server:
1. First of all download all the necessary apps which are given in prerequisites section.
2. Create an account on pagekite website by visiting here. Enter email id and the name of your website as per your desire and verify it by visiting your mail box.
3. Download a website template and modify it as per your need by editing html. The free templates can be downloaded from here. And also it is totally depends on the user that what type of template is required. You can use template from many other websites which provides them for free.
4. Now download and install pagekite apk on your old mobile phone. Open the app and sign in using the email id, your website name and password which was shared in your mailbox by pagekite team.
5. Extract the zip archive of downloaded website template somewhere in your mobile's internal storage and note down that location.
6. After installing Simple Http Server app, open it and click on root folder and select the folder in which we have extracted the website template and enable redirect to index.html if present option. Note down the Port shown, in my case it is 8080.
7. It is to be noted that the main file named index.html must be present in the template extracted location.
8. Again open the pagekite app and select local server settings and enter your port number. In my case I will enter 8080.
9. After completing the above procedure, go back in pagekite app and Enable Pagekite option.
10. Ok, now we have completed the whole process to setup our website and now we can access it from anywhere in the world. Just open any browser in any device and enter the address of your website in the address bar and just hit enter. 
Voila! Your website is accessible from anywhere.
Note: This process can only be used at personal level and not professionally because the website has no security and also mobile device cannot handle much traffic.

Network Attached Storage (NAS) is a type of storage device that is designed to be connected to a network and provide file-level data access to multiple users or clients. NAS devices are specialized computers that are optimized for data storage, management, and access. NAS devices typically consist of one or more hard drives that are arranged in a RAID configuration to provide redundancy and data protection. They are equipped with network interfaces such as Ethernet ports, which allow them to be connected to a local area network (LAN) or a wide area network (WAN). Once connected to the network, the NAS device can be accessed by multiple clients or users, who can then use it to store, retrieve, and share files. NAS devices are popular in both home and business environments, where they are used to store a wide range of data, including documents, photos, videos, music, and other multimedia files.
