uhh well. First after you buy a domain, you need to buy web hosting.
There is still allot I need to learn myself before I can advise on setting up servers and personal web-spaces.
I have just recently gone down this road though. First thing you would need is to find out if your ISP is blocking the port you need to link your Domain Name, this port is usually port 80. Next would be to decide if you want a static or dynamic IP address. Static IP is an address that never changes. Dynamic IP will change every-time a connection is made. Web servers with dynamic addresses can be made, however the router would need to be able to make the necessary changes to the IP address that the Domain Name is linked to every-time the IP changes. It would be easiest to contact your ISP and make sure you have a static IP and a router that will support a static IP.
Once you know you have an IP that you can link the Domain Name to, the next step would be to setup your server and forward port 80 from the router to the server machine.
Both!!Thanks. A static IP is the internal IP or external? I'm confused at that part.
Somebody must create that list and the link has to point somewhere; it can point to #s as easily as words since both are valid html constructs.Also, the IP address is N/A to Flight Simulator because people just join your lobby from a list, not from direct IP access.
Comcast Wi-fI? So no cable runs in to your house and is attached to a cable modem?Also, I use Wi-Fi not cable.
Every post is tagged with the users IP address. Staff can see that tag.And how did you get my last used IP?
