To create your own web hosting server below mentioned steps are required to be followed:
PC/Laptop - A dedicated computer or laptop is required that can run and can be connected round the clock. The configuration of the system depends on your requirements. If you want to create a web hosting server for personal usage, a system with simple configuration such as 2GB RAM or even 512 MB is sufficient.
Step 2 :
Select the OS - Choose the OS, you wish to install on your server. For example, if you choose Linux distro, burn the .ISO file using CD burning program and install the OS.
Step 3 :
Activate Remote Access - For activating remote access, go to system-preferences, remote desktop, and check mark the displayed options. Enter the password. (Required for accessing the server from the remote PC)
Install the FTP - Once you have activated the remote access,install the File Transfer Protocol (FTP). The FTP allows downloading and uploading of the files to the server, and gives access to the files over the Internet.
Configure FTP Users - Go to the system Administration GPROFTP. Enter the password. An FTP widow will be displayed. Go to the Users tab and enter the required fields. Once done with the user setup:
Click "Add " to add users to the list. Thereafter, configure and activate FTP server by going back to "Server" tab to place the server on the network. Enter all the required fields and select "Apply Settings". The process will activate your web server on LAN.
Step 6 :
Port Forwarding - In the prior step, you have activated the web server on the LAN, which means you can access your server within your local network. To access your server from other networks, you need a router. Choose the port forwarding to get your website online.
