    • Definition of a web server
      • A web server is a computer program that delivers content, such as webpage, using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (http).
      • The term web server can also refer to the computer or virtual machine running the program.
      [1] [3]
    • What is an FTP server
      • It is a File Transfer Protocol
      • It transfers any type of computer file such as music, picture, documents etc.
      • FTP runs on Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)
      • Created originally to promote the sharing of files
      [2]
    • What do you need to set it up
      • Internet service
      • Computer that will run operating smoothly
      • Router (not necessary depending on modem provided by your ISP)
    • Set up a web server Step 1
      • Services
      • You will need a high-speed connection capable of bringing information to your home downloading and sending information out to the Internet uploading.
      • Most DSL and cable connections allow this, but some limit the amount of information that users are allowed to upload.
      • Check with your local provider to see if they have such limits.
      [4]
    • Set up a web server step 2
        • The next thing you should think about is a domain name. Your
        • domain name is the name people will use to look up your web
        • pages or to send you email. You will want to register this domain
        • name. There are several services that can help do that. If you're
        • using a dsl connection or a cable modem, you may not have a
        • static network address, so you should look at services from sites
        • like:
        • dyndns.org
        • no-ip.com or
        • zoneedit.com
        • Some of these services can also help with domain registration.
      [4]
    • Set up a web server step 3
      • Hardware
      • Have an internet connection and have set
      • up your domain name
      • The next step is to purchase and set up a home router. This piece of equipment will allow you to share your network connection with several computers.
      • importantly, it will also serve as a first line of defence for your home web server.
      [4][5]
    • Set up a web server step 4
      • The last piece of hardware you will need is the actual computer.
      • There a few requirements for the machine which are:
      • Minimum processor speed of 1Ghz
      • At least 1 Gigabyte (GB) of RAM in system memory
      • Adequate storage for your website's needs
      [5]
    • CONCLUSION
      • In conclusion setting up a web server is really simple
      • As long as we have all equipment and follow instructions needed one shouldn't have any difficulties
      • It is a benefit to have one set up at home to be able to transfer data without the need of carry in physical storage devices
