I was just wondering if that was possible. I saw something on my computer a little while back, started to try it out, and it disappeared. It would definitely make things easier, not having to worry about ftp and all that junk, I'd be worried about security though.

You need server software, a decent internet connection a fixed ip and DNS.
If you don't have a fixed ip, http://www.dns2go.com is pretty good.
Server software is the tricky bit. Windoze is so full of holes that I wouldn't recommend anything hosty with it. When was the last time a UNIX server caught a virus? Never.If one of our members helps you, please click the icon to add to their reputation!

well lets see:
I run on windows
I have a dialup(which means I'd have to connected to the i-net all day for my site to work and my family might shut down the internet so that would halt service)
so it's either a cable monthly fee or just buying and paying for your own .com. .com....

You have hosting, how much do you charge? for what exactly?
And the primary question, do you accept monthly payments?
If you will accept monthly payments from AHFB members, I will lower my cost for .coms for any ahfb/zaireweb user purchasing a domain/web hosting package to 10.95
So if you Zaire can accept monthly payments and for 9.05 or less, this means both you and I can offer our users a chance to get on the net for just $20.00 initial start-up.

so if u have Foxserv the latest version u can support CGI,PHP,MySql, and so on. How much space do u have on ur harddrive? That would be awesome if we could get this to work I wish my mom/dad would buy cable but they're cheap and stick with dialup So how is this gonna all fit together? Can you create unlimited accounts(.com's) on your harddrive (until storage space exceeds capacity of course)?
