I want to set up a web server to learn and to host my own sites and my friends' sites from my home. I was wondering if anybody could point me in the right direction and help me get started. The main services I want to offer are http, ftp, dns, and mail. I have a few basic questions:
How do I choose an operating system? I am leaning towards Red Hat.
What type of system will I need to build? I am going to buy new parts and I have the money so I would like to put together a competitive machine.
What networking decisions will I have to make. Right now I have a dynamic IP from my DSL provider. I have a DSL modem and a router (not using the router right now). I have other PC's that I would like to be able to use on this gateway as well. Will I have to have an IP for each machine?
do you want to be reached at anytime and anywhere?
Hi, I don't know how much you know about web server(IIS , Apache..) and HTML, JAVA. These can be found at internet.
Here I can tell you is something about dynamic IP. You know your IP is changed everytime you logon internet, so almost none will reach your server. You need a Dynamic IP DNS tool. Lefy Eye Dynamic IP DNS is the one. Everyone can reach you by a static domain name even if you have no fix IP.
You can visit website dnsp2p.com and get more detailed infomation.
