I am currently building a small online business website. I'd like to set up a server that I can use for the website. Also, I'd like to use microsoft exchange server to set up email accounts for users. Do you guys have any suggestions about how to do this? Any software that I need? I am somewhat familiar with the Active Directory and have installed Windows Server 2003 before, although I did not connect to the domain with other computers. Basically I'd like to know what I need and how I need to procede to use the server for hosting my webiste and for creating a microsoft exchange server so that we can use the email thru this server. Right now I don't have my website on any website. It's currently just a bunch of .html and .aspx files. I don't have to use the .aspx files if this complicates setting up the server. Do I need to buy a domain now, and set up the server to host the .html files onto the domain? How would I do this? I know of the cons of hosting your own site, but I'd like to give it a try. It would be a great learning experiance and also would be cheapter, and would enable me to also set up a microsoft exchange server. Again if someone can walk me through and explain all my questions Id be great. I'm giving as many points as I can, as I'm almost out.
Thank You So Much!!
