Webiste design/setup

My question is this: I would like to host my own website from my system . I want to know the steps involved indesigning a website,
uploading wepgaes to it and allowing the public to see it etc...

I have designed the web pages in HTMl/Flash and javascripts. I then build the *.EAR and *.WAR files and now I need to upload them onto a website, after I set it up. I want to know how to setup a website, and upload the webpages to it. I also need to know what the web-server function is and how to set it up.

I have access to Orion software, is this what I use for the webserver , if so how????

Are you using IBM Websphere?

As far as I know Orion is not a webserver.

So you already have your website designed, if it is really only HTML, Flash and JavaScript then the next thing we need to know is what OS do you have?

If Window -> install IIS
which you can install from "control panel" -> "add remove programs" -> "Windows components" -> Internet information server"

If Unix, linux etc. -> install Apache
Which you can download for free form www.apache.org
Even if your using windows you can use Apache, which is really good, but IIS is better for beginners.

If you want your website to be available to the outside world, you need check if your connection allows hosting on port 80, you can check here if the port is open http://scan.sygatetech.com/tcpscan.html
If port 80 is not open you cannot host on your connection (at least not like any normal website).

Off course if your all new to this stuff I would recommend just finding an ISP that can host the website for you.

One thing you also need is a domain name, which www.directnic.com is the best place to register.

If you need any more info, let me know.
