Quick Start


This Quick Start will go through the process of setting up a webserver without getting bogged down with the details of each step.  For more information, each step will provide references to more detailed information.

You should still read The Guide which is much more comprehensive than this Quick Start.

Every link with a 'SBS' in front of it is an Step-by-Step tutorial that pertains to the subject at hand.  These are for example only and are not necessarily the products or programs you should use for your particular setup.  They are simply listed below to give you a better idea of what each step looks like.

Since there are about a million different ways of setting a webserver, this Quick Start only goes through the main steps.  All the hyperlinks open in a new browser window for your convenience.

1.  Server

2.  Connection

3.  Router / Network

4.  DNS 5.  Domain name 6.  Troubleshoot and see what went wrong.

7. Work on your website


Seems so simple doesn't it?  Just kidding.  There is a lot more documentation on this website on how to do each step and I suggest that you read through the corresponding sections for more information.
