    Question Server help. Upload a webpage

    Hey guys,

    I live in australia as many of you either know or can see, and i am wondering what is the best way to upload my website to a specified url.

    for example, lets say the url is http://placenamehere.com.au

    to do this i need to buy and australian domain and that will cost me a bit of money. i have been told that i can create my own server through phpdev423. ok, firstly, i need to know how to use this software and what else i need to do. also, what role does a subdomain have??

    if any help can be provided please post or pm me cause i want to try and get this up asap.

    i also want the url (whatever it is) so that anywhere in the world someone types the url in and goes to my page.

    thanks for all your help in advance guys

    Hm, Don't use phpDEV.... get Apache 1.3.27. PHP 4.3.1 and MySQL 3.23

    Also, What OS do you have?
    Internet Connection? (I hear aussies have a nasty cap)

    a domain name makes it easy for folks to remember you adress thats all. The domain name after you get it will need to be pointed to your ip address. if its a static address you can do this threw internic, networksoultions or whomever you registered the domain name with. if you have a dynamic address you need to use a subdomain naming service. i use dynip in canada but im sure youd preferr one in oz. with the normal fee you use a name like Trust_Not.dynip.com but for a bit more you can use a registered name like Trust_Not.com.

    hope that helped

    I set up a web server on my W2K box using tinyWEB. It's not a powerful webserver, but it's small (51.5 K) and takes on 3Mb on resources. Plus they offer an SSL add-on Check it out at:

    I use no-ip.com's dynamic DNS feature to keep my dynamic updated in their DNS. Since my IP changes everytime I log in, I run their app, which puts my new IP into their DNS, so that my domain name (alastair.sytes.net) points at my IP address. It's free too!
    http://www.no-ip.com/

    I am really just starting to set things up, so I don't know how powerful I can make this, but it's all free and does all I need.
