    How to make my computer a web server?

    Hi everyone!, I'd like to know how to make my computer a web server.

    I've make a web page already, and I would like to have it running, but I don't wanna pay any hosting company for it, so the thing is that I wanna learn "how to do it my self".

    It is not a big website, it's just basic website.
    It is an informative site, and for the moment it doesn't have any forms, scripting stuff or complicated stuff (like flash or multimedia), so my point here is that my site it's pure (x)html code and it's pretty small.
    I don't expect too many visitors perhaps like 100 monthly or something like that.

    Now like I said above, I wanna do it my self, and I don't wanna pay money for it.
    the computer it's a...
    AMD Semprom 3300+ 800Mhz 128KB cache
    384 MB RAM
    Radeon XPRESS 200M
    Ubuntu 9.10 Kernel 2.6.31-20-generic Gnome 2.28.1

    What do I have to do? -- Can anybody help me please!.
    Now lets say I have it good to go, what about the domain? I have one on mind that is available for me to register it. but Do i have to pay for it?
    Is there some alternatives for me?

    In advance thanks everybody for your appreciated help!

    You have to do 2 things.

    First: install apache and deploy your folder under /var/www (this location may vary)
    Second: open an account in no-ip or in an similar site.

    Note that if you're behind a router, you'll have to forward the apache port (tipically 80) to your PC. This is a simple router configuration...

    Kind regards!
