What steps do I have to take to set my computer up for web hosting before I purchase a hosting plan? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to use my computer to host a website. I am going to purchase a hosting plan, but I want to get everything else taken care of before I purchase it. Most needed answers:

    Should I use the xampp server or something else?

    How do I enable remote access?

    How do I set up a main web page with the hosting server?

    ...additional information

     

    And then, I can work on getting a job so I can purchase a hosting plan.

    This query has nothing to do with Activation or Validation problems - and almost nothing to do with what you perceive as your options.
     
    I suggest that you repost your question (with a LOT more detail) in a more relevant forum, such as Windows Answers
    may be a good place to start.
