Hosting a web site

Hello forum,

   I am a newbie and trying to host a official website.I have the server and the web pages already running , at a different location .. I need to change the domain .Please inform me the steps which i have to execute to make my web server available to the outside world . I mean the setting in the Windows DNS server ...


RE: Hosting a web site


Here is how to do it.

1. Make sure your ISP has provided you with a static I.P.
2. register a domain with somebody like pickaweb.com should cost about $20
3. Go to www.granitecanyon.com they are a free dns server group, and tell them your i.p. address and new domain name.
3a. You will need to goto dns.djwice.com to make your record for granitecanyon.
4. Wait 2 days log onto your pickaweb account and set the DNS serevrs to ns1.granitecanyon.com and ns2.granitecanyon.com
5. Reply to the granitecanyon email to active the there DNS update of your details.
6. Make sure you set the ISM to point to the wwwroot as your default web.  This help later if you run multiple websites.


Best of Luck.
