I'm trying to develop a website with a database. I wonder what should I do so when a user click a URL say: http://www.myData.com, he will refer to my local computer.

this way, the database will be located on my local computer and I can update it locally.

I'll appritiate any ideas.

thanks
Peter

Moving to the General Computing forum since this isn't a JSP issue.

Hi

You need a static IP for starters
Then you need permission from your ISP to run a web server from that IP
If your computer is not connected directly (router, switch etc in the way) you need to configure your computer as the default route or configure your router to send requests that come in on the ports you want to serve content from to your computer (default 80).

Next you need to register a domain and have the domain registrar's nameservers point to your IP address.

Now everything should work.

well, maybe I had to ask this question:

I'm trying to develop a website with ~ 200 users. the website will have a database.

1. should I have a static IP and have it the way described above OR
2. buy a domain and have the services from my ISP. I'm not sure how to have a databae of my own if I only buy a domain? I mean where will it be and how can i make sure it is secured?

any idea?

Your ISp will generally not supply such services. Do a search for "web hosting" companies. I use mmaweb.net and I've been very pleased.

thanks Bear Bibeault
correct me if i get it right: the service offered in this site (say the commerce) will give me the ability to control the db from my local computer?
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
