  • 3. 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]
  • 4. 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]
  • 5. 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)
  • 6. 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.

  • 7. 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.

  • 8. 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]
  • 9. 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]
  • 10. 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
