ESXi 4.0 and Webserver

Hello,

I am new to ESXi and need some help with a particular configuration.  We have decided to host our own website internally.  I have purchased a box to install ESXi and then this installation will host one virtual machine that will be the web server.  I have my internet connection directly connected to an ASA 5510.  It is my understanding that you can configure a DMZ on the ASA.  I have one static IP address remaining.  Where would this static IP go on the ESXi host or the web server.  It looks to me that it would have to go on the web sever, but then I do not know what to put on the host.  

Lastly, would this be the right way to configure?  I didn't want the web server on our internal network for security reason.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

If you are hosting an externally facing Web Server, yes the static IP address will be allocated to the Web Server, not the ESXi host.

When you create a virtual switch on the ESXi host, you would allocate an IP Address to the ESXi Server for Management, there is a default Virtual Machine Network which is create which you Connect the Virtual Network card of the Virtual Machine to, then you would configiure your virtual machine as you would a phsyical; machine.

IP Address you would use for the host, would be an IP address you use on your management network or Interal LAN.
