Local Web Server


Recommended Posts

I recently signed up with Globat and was not pleased with the service. After alot of thinking, I decided to make my machine the web server.


Currently I have the following a machine with:

Pentium 2.4 Ghz

Cable Internet

Windows XP pro

One Real IP address


I already have the site running up on my machine behind a router. Now my question is how do I configure the domain name ex "theman.com" to point to my website on my local machine?


Is there anything else that I need to know before I dive into this?

I am currenty with ipowerweb and will expire on June 16 th. So I decided to try globa which was a big mistake.


I agree tat Ipowerweb is a very good idea, but I need alot of space, more than 1.5 gb. also they have alot of restriction aganist cron jobs various other things.


I currently help manage a local website at work, with security and everything.


I want the local server because it gives me the freedom to do anything I want with it.
