I'm new here, so I may not be posting this in the right place. I've developed my own website at home using Tomcat. I've registered for a domain name on a website, so I have that end under control. My question is, how do I make my website viewable on the internet, using that domain name? Does anyone have a place to point me to that might help?
My set up consists of a computer behind a router on a cable internet connection, so I'd need a way to register my IP with the DNS server dynamically. I have a basic understanding of what needs to happen, I just don't know how to do it.
go into your router and map out ports to your dns and your server. You might also need to set your machine in a dmz. You can read all about that in your router's manual. If you do not know how to modify router settings post back and I can help you through it.
