Basic IIS questions - setting up my own webpage

4 New Member
Hi all,

Sorry about the noobish question, but I guess we all have to start somewhere. I just bought a domain (non-hosted) from GoDadday, and plan on hosting myself, for the experience. I have my own dedicated machine I plan to use as a server. I don't expect detailed answers to these questions (though that would be appreciated), so if someone can point me to articles/forums that give good answers (have had trouble finding info for pure newbies), that would be cool, too. I have IIS 7 installed on my Windows Vista machine.

1) How do I make my domain redirect to my machine?

2) How do I find info about using FTP to upload to my site once I get #1 squared away?

3) All books I have found on IIS 7 are due out later this year. Is there anything out now that will help me that anyone knows of?

I'll stop there, and see what other questions I have once I start getting some responses on these. Thanks in advance!

This is somethong your hosting provider should do for you. But you can also assign your IP address to a domain yourself, by using a Dynamic DNS service e.g. http://www.no-ip.com/getting_started.php

2) How do I find info about using FTP to upload to my site once I get #1 squared away?
Uploading your site is is very easy. Try a free FTP program like FileZilla.

3) All books I have found on IIS 7 are due out later this year. Is there anything out now that will help me that anyone knows of?
Reading a book about IIS6.0 will give you a good understanding of the basics of IIS 7.
Or check the microsoft site:

I tried no-ip, but the IP address it identified was in the 76 range. I know about NAT, and that 192.168.1.xxx is a private IP address, but: When I go to the router setup, under 'virtual server' in my router, am I going to use my p.c.'s private i.p. address, or the public (76.etc.) for enabling port 80? I've tried both, but got either timeout or connection refused. I've read that Comcast doesn't block port 80 incoming???? Thanks for all the help!!!!!!!!!!

And one more thing... if I use IIS, which address should I use under website binding?

If you are behind a router you probably have to enable 'port forwarding' which means that incoming data traffic on a specific port (80 in this case) must be routed to a PC that is behind your router (the one where IIS runs).

Got it! :-) Thanks! Now that I have my Windows ICF set to treat port 80 as an exception, what measures should I take to keep out intruders?
