    if you want to host a webpage from your computer and not from a providers server, then you need to get a program like Abyss X server or something along those lines....

    i think thats what your asking?

    To host the website, you'll need a webserver. Apache is the most popular, but you might like something easier like xitami. the .tk address will let you link the domain to an IP, but unless you have a static address you'll need to use dyndns to get a static IP.

    As for building the site, I think mozilla has a web page editor? If you are looking for a content management system, maybe use phpbb2? but you will need to install php and mysql on the server in that case.

    not necessarily mysql, just an sql databate

    Your ISP is the one assigning you an IP. In your case it is dynamic, meaning that it changes from time to time. If you link your .tk-address to your IP address at home, as soon as your ISP changes your IP your server/website won't be accessible anymore through the .tk-address. That's where dyndns comes in.
    It's not your router that's lacking here, it's your knowledge
    Read up on DNS, then see if you still want to go on with your project, and if yes: check the DynDNS website...

    Soda i gotta disagree with you bro. AS long as you are willing to read apache is just fine as a server. Most linux distro's give you the option to install and add some of the more popular modules during install of the OS. Apache is definately the way to go IMHO. As far as a good html editor for *nix either VI or quanta+.
    EDIT: most distro's will also install and configure either postgre or mysql, depending on the distro, at install time if the user selects it.

    slackware 10 with everything installed that came with the discs....yea if i was good at html i would be fine with something like vi but im looking more for something that is like
    "press here to add banner"
    then it adds the according html

    I am not trying to be an ******* here but HTML isnt exactly rocket science. If i may suggest you might want to pick up the book "web design in a nutshell" from oriely press. I got it out of the bargain bin at Barnes and Nobles for 7 dollars. It has been an invaluable companion. If you are planning on running your own server you realy should learn the "languages" you are using. Most WYSIWYG editors that automate tasks like tables and stuff also tend to bloat your code. If you can function on a linux box you are smart enough to learn html and even some of the scripting languages. Do you have a windows computer available? if all else fails get a copy of macromedia dreamweaver and use it to edit your files the copy them to the server.
