Specs: Windows Vista, 2GB
I would like to know how I can host my own site. There are a lot of websites that you can buy a domain from take for example you can go there, buy a domain, and then pay X amount of dollars a month, and they host your site, but I want to know what they have and I need to buy in order to host my own website and domain for free.

Actually Sci-Guy the poster has two sentences with a full stop ('period' in your language) at the end of each. One of them has commas which provide pauses in the sentence which is correct. Also his sentences deal with the same subject so paragraphing is not necessary.

Nothing wrong with it as far as I can see!

Probably not worth the effort. My ISP charges 15 more dollars per month for a static IP, which you must have for a server to work correctly.

1and1.com will rent you 10 gigs of server space for $3.99 per month.

I do not work for 1and1, but I have managed several websites hosted by them for several years and I am very satisfied with their service.

You can get to 1and1 by going to:

and click on the 1and1 icon at the very bottom of the page.

As jpw indicated, you need a 'Static' internet address to host a web site. Most ISPs give you 'Dynamic' IP addresses that constantly change. They usually charge extra for a static IP.

Probably not worth the effort.

Almost all of your post reads as one sentence (very annoying).

download something like XAMPP it comes with everything.

then you open your firewall.

now your computer is a server.

on a remote computer enter your IP address and your computers IP (subnet) in the address bar.

My bad. My failing eyesight didn't see the commas. My apologies to the OP.

P.S. It's a "full stop" in my language, too.
