How to set up a web server?

Postby anubha.arora » 13. December 2009 10:17

Hello friends I am new to setting up a web server....I am finding hard to set up a web server. Please guide me what are the steps I have to follow to correctly set up a web server.

Things which I already own
--------------------------------


1. XAMPP for windows is installed on Windows XP with Service Pack 2, XAMPP is correctly installed without any hurdles
2. A Static IP address
3. Port 80 is opened

Things which are confusing me:
-------------------------------------


1. How to map domain with my static IP address?
2. My domain is registered with GoDaddy will I have to use third part DNS service like Zonedit or open DNS to point my domain to my static ip?
3. What is port forwarding....will i have to use a router or a software will do the task?

I will be grateful if somebody can give step wise details of the same. Thanks :)
