Solved Can I use apache server to setup a domain name for intranet?

Specs: Windows 7
Can someone please explain to me the differences between using an Apache server on a regular laptop vs. a whole operating system like Windows Server 2008. I'd like to setup an intranet complete with an internal domain name. Is this possible with Apache or do you have to use a complete server operating system like Windows server 2008?

✔ Best Answer
No, you can use Apaches on any Windows Operating System

I ran a public web site for a while using Apache on Windows 98 and then Windows XP. A server Operating System is not necessary.

You don't use Apache to set up the Domain Name, you use the Hosts file and configure Apache accordingly.
