I will try my best do describe what I need hep for. I have done a fair bit of web page building in my own time for fun, but unfortunately have never got into the hosting side of it or actually uplaoding a page on the internet so am abit in the dark!
I plan to build a web page in Frontpage which contains an access database in it with cars that I am selling, from there people will be able to look at the individual cars etc, and email me if they are interested.
I have broadband internet at home and wondered, if i bought a domain name, for example, http://www.EdwardHotchkissCars.co.uk
, would i be able to link it so that when people accessed the page, my own computer would host it, so that i do not have to pay a compnay to host it for me? I.e. when they access that page, they directly access the website that is hosted on my computer? Is this possible, as my broadband and computer are always on?
If this is possible, how do i go about setting it up? Is it possible to make a section of the hard drive that contins the webpage that people are viewing seperate so that the rest of the hardrive is somewhat secure?
It could be that what I am asking is not possible and the only way for me to do it would be just to buy some webspace from a hosting company and upload the website whenever alterations are made. Any help would be much appreciated as i am looking forward to the project of making and maintaining a website in my free time. Thanks, and sorry if my question seams so long winded!
Yours in need of guidence!
