My own HTTP server on Win7 ... finally

After few days of trying and failing, I managed tonight to have access to my own server, it is actually a folder on my own laptop that I can access using an IP address+Port.

Update 2018-12-30: Below links and pages no longer work

It was indeed one of my oldest dreams, to get my own server, I don't have one yet, but I know how to do one, I was lost among the IPs, ISPs, DNSs, and stuff like that until made it.

The trick was that my ISP was blocking the port 80, so I have to add another port to my Firewall, then add a port forward in my router firewall (Since I am behind a router) to have access to it.

And, also

There were also a challenge on how to do that if usually ISPs make sure you have a dynamic IP address and not a static, that was fixed again using service, that have an app (called No-IP DUC) that link your account to your dynamic IP address, will have to try it out and see if it is working fine.

Now that has been done, just a free account to would let me have a domain directed to my IP (Since it is free).

Once I decide, I will see if I can manage to host all or part of my domains through this service, or decide to go with the Static IP through my ISP.
